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.

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 (5738) - 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 (1614) - 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.

Nice beer. A good blend of the various bastards. Definitely worth a try if you are a fan of Arrogant Bastard, Oaked Arrogant Bastard, or Double Bastard.

dyetube (1218) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2010
This beer pours a very deep amber almost black with a large tan head. The aromas are citrus, pine, dough, smoked malt. The mouthfeel is heavy with a stickiness and medium carbonation ending very dry and bitter with a little smoke. This was a great beer! One of the best beers I’ve had! Can’t wait to have another. Cheers!

bbbeer (592) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Beautiful red-brown with medium head. Aroma mostly hops with a bit of malt. Full body, alcohol not detectable. Flavor is pretty much hops with pine flavor, with some wood and malt. Mainly bitter, not much balance. Perhaps not the most distinguished member of the Bastard family but good nonetheless.

bth122 (1311) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Poured a amber brown color, frothy full head, lacing all over the glass. The only aroma I smell is hops and lots of them. Taste is heavy bitter. Palate is med to heavy bodied. Creamy and oily texture. Long bitter finish. You taste some malt still though. This hop overload. But still good.
