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.

Gachupines (1062) - USA - FEB 23, 2011
Deep brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is hops with a slight smoked maltiness. Flavor is rich, strong hops without overwhelming. Very well balanced in the finish. A little astringent aftertaste but not at all in an unpleasant way. Really enjoyed this, like an Arrogant Bastard with the intensity turned down slightly.

markducommun (371) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Lighter mahogany brown, almost yellow at the edges with a light tan head. Strong vanilla and molasses, bourbon alcohol notes, cereal grains. Bitter alcoholic tang, big sweet and almost biscuity malt body. Strong amount of alcohol, very oily, thick. Long finish. Outstanding, albeit crazy, beer.

drpimento (2460) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Good, and follows its description, but the extreme bitterness in the finish yields some off tastes that aren’t hurt a bit, ditto the slightly soft body.

Pours brown amber with an off-white/tan head. Smokey aroma with a malty flavor of spice. Surprisingly light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ChrisFields (95) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pours murky brown with a thin head. Aromas of dark fruit, singed wheat, and hickory chips. Alcohol is also present on the nose but not overwhelming. Taste is heavy sweet malt and ends mildly bitter. Full bodied. Overall very nice.

kevinsenn (1434) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2015
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Caramel, raisin, and lemon aroma. Smooth (smoother than Arrogand Bastard, anyway) taste with raisin, caramel, earthy and woody notes, and light citrus notes. Bitter finish. Pretty darn tasty.

TheBear11D (361) - Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2015
22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. The Lukcy Bastard pours a clear ruby red with a thick frothy light tan head that lasts a very long while. The aroma is caramel, floral and bread. The flavor is sharp floral hops with a caramel background rounded with bread and a touch of pine. The body is medium with active carbonation. Overall this is a very nice brew.

seymour (1650) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2015
Split a bomber bottle at Jed’s party, thanks for sharing. It poured a deep reddish amber with persistent beige foam and lace. Predictable over-the-top Arrogant Bastard traits: big malt and big hops. This one’s even bigger overall with added hardwood-aged complexity. Good stuff.

BadAprilia1000 (373) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pours a lovely reddish brown with a good sticking head. Aroma is pine, hops, floral, caramel, toffee, tropical fruit, citrus, malt, light vanilla sweet, oak. Taste is smooth, caramel, biscuit, toffee, floral hops, malt, bitter. Great one again, a bit smoother than any of them alone.

Nothing fancy here, just solid, than again, lots of solid beers around..tried twice, that’s enough for me.
