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.

Goooood stuff here ladies and gents. I’ve looked for this one for quite some time and just couldn’t find it. Aroma is heavy on citrus and pine trees with a smooth oak and caramel backbone. Intense aroma. Very powerful yet balanced. Poured a deep bronze color with a foamy white head - great retention. Flavor is pretty similar with a very heavy citrus and pine sap flavor from the hops. As it warms, the caramel and oak come out more with some light vanilla flavors. Very smooth and drinkable with a long bitter finish. My favorite ’bastard’ brew from stone.

This was a great blended brew that changed dramatically as it warmed up. Complex, clean and potent - thanks for the share guy!

Rich ruby tinted amber and copper body with a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pungent earthy and grassy hops with some alcohol and wood. Medium-bodied; Strong pungent hop flavour (what a surprise) with a very grassy and herbal note, with some earthy malts, some toffee and a hint of nuts and a woodsy, mushroomy flavour. Aftertaste shows a ton of hops which don’t go over too well, a bunch of alcohol and some decent malt body. Overall, an overly hopped ale with not a good malt balance and too woodsy and herbal of a flavour to be good - especially to drink 65 centilitres of it. When will people wake up and see that every Stone beer is essentially the same. This beer isn’t really worth trying unless you love Imperial IPAs and spending bunches of money to try ’different’ beers that are really the same. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 11-December-2012 for US$8.00 sampled at home in Upstate New York on 29-December-2012.

Cloudy brown beer, tidy pale tan head. A little creamy malt, trace of caramel. Strong piney hops with a trace of grapefruit, quite bitter. A little aniseed. Hangs together well, very drinkable.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a small yellow-ish head. Aroma is a burst of hops with slight malty sweetness. Strong hop flavors along with alcohol presence in the taste, with some sweetness to it. As said in the description, it is between Arrogant Bastard and the Double Bastard in flavor and strength. Average carbonation that leaves the palate cleanly. Some lacing left on the glass.

On tap at Tap and Mallet. Pours clear reddish amber with a medium tan head and beautiful lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, caramel, pine. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet and medium bitter. Very light astringence. Medium body and prickly carbonation. I really enjoyed this.

Bottle: pours clear copper with wispy one finger khaki head. Head persists. Nose is real appealing. Spicy, herbal hops, vanilla and oak, tropical fruits and caramel malts. On the palate, relatively smooth for how much hop bitterness you would expect from the nose. Oak notes, pacific herbal hops, some caramel malt sweetness and then the spicy warming bitterness and drying on the finish. Great balance and addition of the Oaked makes this a great blend. I'll have another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A pretty delicious ASA. Lovely, floral aroma. Big nose. The hops smell fresh. The beer is a lovely, auburn leather color with a white head that sticks. Pleasant lacing. Taste is on the sweet side, but not overbearing. Excellent malt/hops balance. Mouthfeel is smooth--this beer is highly drinkable. Some bitterness hangs around at the end. The beer has fun, fruity, almost tropical notes to it. Super glad I tried it.

The nose was the most outstanding part of this beer--it was just so complex, reflecting the obvious qualities of Arrogant Bastard, but also softened and deepened with vanilla and tropical fruit. The drinking wasn’t bad either, and mercifully it wasn’t a crass hop-monster there either. Warming, to be sure. Tremendous beer. Bottle.
