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.

Pours a deep ruby brown with frothy one finger head. Aroma is caramel malt and drak fruit. Taste is a blend if the caramel malt, citrus hoppiness, and a bit of raisin. Great lacing and mouthfeel. One of the more enjoyable brews i have tasted in a while.

Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, pine, grapefruit, oak, tangerine and light tropical fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, grapefruit, pine, orange zest, light earthiness, light oak and a hint of tropical fruit with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Padron4KM (612) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2010
22 oz bomber. Dark mahogany with a two finger reddish tan head above lively carbonation. Head settles to a thin cap and leaves a spotty lace pattern on the glass.
Aromas of rich caramel followed by citrus and earth.
Flavor is much the same. Sweet caramel, grapefruit, earth, resin, pepper. Oak dryness on the finish.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2010
22oz bottle, pretty fresh. Pours clear reddish copper with a two finger light beige head that leaves some spiderwebs of lacing and holds a wispy cap and bubbly ring. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus hops, some pine, good caramel malt, a bit of vanilla and oak, some apples and other fruits hiding underneath. Good strength. Flavor starts with some resinous hops, citrus, some pine, serious caramel malt backbone, a little vanilla and oak, good bitterness with only mild sweetness. Medium bodied, a bit sticky, oily, medium carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff, glad I got a chance to try it. Really need to get around to trying some Double Bastard....

bleeng (1554) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Bomber. Aggressive pour gives it a nice thick white head. Slightly hazy and brown color. Nose is slightly woody and moderately hopped (for Stone). First taste is a smooth, fluffy body and bitterness. Hops are definitely present but they don’t overwhelm this beer. I found some hint of maltiness at the end. Alcohol is found mostly on the end. Decent beer but a bomber will certainly be enough for one sitting.

rougeau13 (2119) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Deep ruby-brown with a nice lacy off-white head. Aroma strong with floral and piney hops, citrus and other ripe fruits and a backing of caramel malts. Very hoppy to the taste, with a nicely complimentary sweet malt background. Full bodied, thick, slightly harsh, intense.

GT2 (9102) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 29, 2010
22oz. Pours a clear, deep ruby with a massive yellow rocky head with volcanic retention and great webby lace. Aroma is straight fresh pineapple, kumquat. Taste is 100% nutty bitter, chalky, 100+ IBUs, big Brasil nut and walnut skin, tree bark, ultra bitter dark chocolate, sweat and old strawberry hops. Pretty much a nutty hop bomb. Slight spicy alcohol. Meh.
