COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jstraw (1936) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Dark, cloudy, caramel color with good, creamy, tan head / Nose of cut pine and caramel / Medium body, fine carbonation, malty, with great, hoppy, balance and long, lightly sweet and bitter, finish / Flavors of cut pine and resin with caramel, brown sugar, and grapefruit notes / Pretty much a double ipa. Could use a little more fruit to balance out the hoppy bitterness, but still very good.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Deep chestnut brown with fading head. Potent slightly vanilla hopped grassy pine to smell, fairly pungent with a touch of caramel and almond. The body is slightly viscous with a tooth coating bitteringly chocolate touch and a floral piney echo lasting well into the finish. Seemingly rough and abrupt it mutates into a more balanced and nuanced finish highlighted by mocha figs and hay. Easy to drink despite its rough edges.

peteinSD (1392) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle from brewery. Looks like a bastard in the glass. Aroma is pine, citrus, hops, and sweet malt. Taste is dominated by somewhat bitter hops although the bitterness if relatively restrained by Stone standards (perhaps the oak influence). I also taste dark malt, underlying caramel, and an alcohol tinge after the finish. Solid enough beer.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2010
22oz bottle. Poured a deep amber color with a large sized off white head. Lacing left on the glass. Aromas of wood, citrus, some pine, and caramel. Tastes of caramel, dark fruits, citrus, and lighter wood.

scottw86 (1118) - Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Poured a very dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy with fruit and citrus. Slightly oak-ey notes as well. Taste is quite hoppy but with a good amount of sweet fruity flavors. Finish has lots of caramel malts. Hops are slightly floral. A tad smokey with some oak? Overall a very good IPA, it is very crisp and drinkable. Not too sweet or too bitter, the balance is just right.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 10, 2010
22oz bottle. Dark orange-red with a small light brown head. Pine and candied citrus hop aromatics, some underlying maltiness. Heavy piney resinous hop character, somewhat medicinal bitterness. Some caramel and alefruit in the finish, with a lingering grassy hop component. Mouthfeel is a light medium, somewhat dry.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Bomber->trappist: Pours an ultra-thin, brown, quickly diminishing head atop a murky amber body. Aroma of citrus, sugar, and candy. Body is medium, long on the palate, starting out lightly sweet, then going moderately bitter far into the aftertaste. This beer is not deceptive--it lets you know you are consuming a much higher ABV than usual--which hopefully the drinker will take into consideration. Another fine brew from Stone.

Narnad (1471) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Pours a dark copper color with a very dense creamy, tan head that really is rather impressive and long lasting. Aroma has a strong piny and citrus nose of Chinook as well as a mild oak and low toasted malt nose. Flavor has an awesomely strong and slightly harsh piny presence, a light toasted middle and a modest citrus ending with a light oaky kick to finish it off. Body is modest with a very, very, very creamy feeling. Overall a very tasty brew with a very bitter, slightly rough hoppiness that is kicked up a notch from the light oaky finish. The head on this beer is one of the more impressive ones I have seen in a long time as it entices you to sip, leaving a foamstash as proof you drank it.

BuckeyeBoy (2852) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 8, 2010
22oz Bottle thanks to Toby. Pours out a mahogany topped with a sand head. Aroma was of tropical fruit, lots of citrus, caramel, and a touch of wood. Taste was much the same with lots of hops and thick rich malt sweetness.
