Lukcy Basartd is a dry-hopped meeting-of-the-Bastards in a in-the-fermenter-blend of Arrogant Bastard Ale and Double Bastard Ale…with a perfect balance of the essence of OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale. All in all, one awesome Bastard.

Lukcy Basartd Ale will be released in November and should be available in many of the enlightened locations where the liquid Arrogance is typically found.

This is a ‘once only’ special release commemorating the 13 year anniversary of when Arrogant Bastard Ale was first released upon the unsuspecting public. That is, ‘once only’ unless we decide to make it again.

pineypower (2546) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Pours out a murky, dark ruby color with a fluffy light tan head. Aroma is heavy resiny citrus hops, oak, light vanilla and slight caramel sweetness. Taste is complex, hops are citrus and rather upfront, but mellow a bit, notes of oak, vanilla, light caramel, and some alcohol notes on the finish. Overall well done, I can pinpoint a taste of this one to each of the "Bastards" used in making it. I’d like to see how it is with some age on it.

KornDogg (537) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2010
On Draft at Bull’s Head, Lititz PA. Hop and aged barrel aroma. Dark body with thin head. Flavor starts of hoppy and piney followed by a oak barrel flavor, but not over powering. Subtle hints of caramel malts. Well balanced

deyholla (7002) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Bottle shared by Ari, thanks! Poured a clear golden amber with an off white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was a combination of pine and grains with a strong oak backing. Flavor started with grain/cereal and oak and was joined by a strong finishing pine note.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Bomber from Valley Farm. Deep amber in color. Nose is definitely Stone. Strong hops, with a solid malt backbone. Some sweetness. Some pineapple and vanilla. Rich and hoppy. Solid balance of flavors throughout. A hint of alcohol in the finish.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 19, 2010
22 oz bottle. Clear deep amber brown with a dense creamy beige head. Huge citrus and pine hop aroma with some caramel and toffee. The flavor is very bitter throughout with the malt present but overpowered by the hops. Medium to full body with average carbonation and a long bitter finish. I really like this blend, the dry hops round out the high bitterness. Drink ability is a bit low like all other bastards though, but nice every once in a while.

Stone just seems to make the most unique beers. This one is angry right out of the gate. The color is dark red with a thick bubbly head. Aroma is filled with earthy, piney hops, with a little bit of citrus. The ABV isn’t too strong, but it holds quite a bite. Good medium body mouth feel, incredibly smooth.

jredmond (5655) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Draft at Neighborhood with Linh. Pours an amber body with nice off-white lacing. Aroma is sweet sugary malts, caramel, oak, and fresh hops. Mouthfeel starts with sweet malts, caramel, and grapefruit; and then finishes with pine, citrus, grass hops. Great fresh notes

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle/22oz - Pours a dark ruby in color with a small off-white head that faded to a thin covering over the beer. Produces some very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is a heady combination of caramel malts and citrus/pine hops with just a hint of the oak/vanilla. Flavor is strong of citrus/grapefruit hops, but balanced, somewhat, by some brown sugar or caramel malts. If you hold it in your mouth for a bit, the oakiness and vanilla really shine through. Fairly bitter and lingering finish. I would drink this beer DAILY, if given the opportunity. Hopefully Stone will make this a more than one-time opportunity (hint, hint, wink wink, PLEASE!)...

usaipa (5) - Kentucky, USA - DEC 19, 2010 does not count
pour: semi dark copper red with a thick offtan head. smell: loads of malts and hops. orange peels. grapfruit. taste: strong hop and malt flavor up front, some grapefruit and roasted malts, some wood flavor on the end, ends dry with some dark fruit sweetness. overall a very good beer. iv had the other bastards and this comes close to the double with a slightly woody finish. overall nice!

brenn79 (1582) - Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2010
22 oz. bottle- Pours dark murky yet ruby red with a beautiful white creamy head, the foam reminds me of a quality Belgian brew with the small bubbles only more creamy, the aroma is sweet citrusy hops with this fresh clean smell. The flavor is candy sugar followed by a burst of hops then finishes with a woody flavor, assuming wood tastes bitter. I love double bastard and oaked arrogant, but actually haven’t rated regular old arrogant bastard ale, can you believe that. I need to do a vertical of all the bastard line, that would be interesting.
