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.

Dark mahogany ruby, creamy dense pale sandy head. Deep caramel aroma punctuated with aggressive green leafy hops. Abrasive and astringent, seems old and broken. Creaminess springs forth from the head and is washed away quickly with abundant dry leaves, and notes of oak. I am left disappointed.

adrian910ss (2370) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2010
On draft at R & H. Pours a clear dark coppery amber with a frosty off white head. Aroma of tangy hops, grassy notes and wild flower notes. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Served from a 22 oz bottle from Baron’s. The appearance is a deep amber with a small off white foam had. The aromas are intense with sweet malts, cinnamon, ground tea leaves, dry hops. The flavors follow the nose really close. A full dose of sweet hops, spicy hops, spiced oak, very bitter, tea, white pepper, a bit much of a medicinal/perfumery tone, there is a nice hidden vanilla note. The mouth is medium to full bodied, a touch on the hot side with a bitter lasting after taste. Overall a pretty crazy brew. A nice mingle of the 3 and a cool way to do a special anniversary.

bhensonb (11488) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Tap at Pacific Coast Brewing. Pours ruddy dark dark with a slight creamy off-white or beige head. Aroma of roast malt and resin. Fullish body. strong roast malt and very stron and harsh resiny hop. Mellows out a bit with time.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle shared by sloth. The pour was brown with some orangey hues, decent head. The aroma was caramel, pine, citrus. The flavor followed, pine, earthy, resinous, citrus, some caramel, and this thing wasn’t as roughly, semi-astringently bitter, as the normal AB. Acidity also reduced. A pretty nice drinker, full mouthfeel, but the ABV didn’t seem as high as the label suggested.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle consumed the week it came to state. Pours a mahogany body with an off white head and okay head retention. Hoppy, grassy with pine and grapefruit tones. Soft and earthy. Strong grass y bitter warming. Citrus and fresh grapefruit rinds. Juicy with fresh cut grass notes. Great fresh.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2010
pours ruby auburn color with off white frothy head. Aroma of dark cane syrup, citrus / resiny hops, grapefruit. Flavor of molasses, burnt sugar, resiny hops, apricot nectar, with a decidedly bitter finish. Thick, chewy mouth feel, full bodied. A pretty big beer, but not nuanced in the least. It was enjoyable, but I will probably not revisit. Not my favorite bastard.

Sampled on 12/13/2010. This American Strong Ale pours a medium amber brown color from a 22oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is grapefruity, sweet, caramel with some wood. Medium to full bodied American Strong Ale. The malts are caramel and sweet, with a hint of oak. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy and them some more juicy grapefruit. Good carbonation. A nice balance of hops, malts and alcohol. This beer has a nice malt sweetness at the start with a fairly significant hop bite at the finish. The flavors tend to mellow and merge as it warms. Finishes sweet with some hops. Nice beer. I wonder how it will age. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Excellent beer. Hoppy and big. On tap in a snifter. Loved the big hoppy taste. Bastard of a beer

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Draft @ Brass Tap. A deep amber color beer with a tall beige head. Nice nose, big on toasted malts, fat leafy green hops, and caramel notes. Medium to full body with a rich, smooth texture and good carbonation. Big resinous hop notes help give this one solid bitterness however the sweetness of the caramel notes to a lot to balance it out, the toasted malt background shines through as does a wood note. Solid bittersweet finish.
