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.

This is a great ale! Very balanced. You can taste the blending in waves. I find this a huge value (taste vs cost), really enjoyed it.

Huge beer. Large malt backbone, caramel heavy. Bitter is very strong and dominates the beer. Some bitter hopping comes through in aroma and taste but the bitter is dominant.

radio_nowhere (917) - Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Bomber into snifter glass, reddish copper-amber color with light tan head. Aroma of strong grapefruit/pine hops, brown sugar and faint oak. Taste adds notes of caramel, citrus, grass, booze and strong bitter earthy/resin hops. Medium body, low carbonation, oily, dry with lingering grapefruity/pine finish. It’s a strong bastard with some depth, very good.

Schwarzbart (27) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2014
A nice looking strong ale with it's khaki, bubbly head, mahogany-red color and ample lacing. Smells of cherry sauce, ripe grapefruit and pine. The pine follows up big in the taste along with caramel malts, molasses, ripe grapefruit, grassy-leafy hops and some oak. Solid! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hawthorne00 (2554) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle, 10C. Copper with an inch of light beige head that lasts pretty well. Aroma of kumquats, grapefruit, pine, caramel. A bit earthy, just a suggestion of booze. Creamy texture, medium carbonation. Very sweet with loads of caramel melding into kumquats, grapefruit. earthy woody flavours. Slight onion. Big resinous bitter finish oozes through. Doesn’t dry out much at all, which is a shame of the order of .2 -.3.Still, good stuff.

TimE (3373) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2014
Deep Amber color. Touch of bourbon sweet maltiness with fairly aggressive hops underneath. Big thick body with lots of hops, and massive malt backbone with tons of caramel and bourbon. Slightly boozy, but great.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dark copper color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of oak with some residual sugar notes and strong hoppy notes of citrus and earthy notes. Taste is also dominated by oak notes with plenty of residual sugars and strong hoppy notes with light oak in the finish. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Good stuff overall and very enjoyable beer.

scotchzombie (367) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Pours hazy ruby red with a finely bubbled off white head that fades to a rim and faint coating. Aroma is caramel malts, wood, resin, citrus. Taste is pine hops, oak, and bitter grapefruit on a burnt malt bed. Very dry. Bitter finish. Dry hopping is evident. Balance is enhanced with some warming. Enjoyable blend 'o bastards.

liquidhedonism (185) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - DEC 19, 2014
On tap at Yard House in Portland, OR. Aroma: malty, piney, and nutty, with hints of caramel, toffee, and resin. Taste/Palate: sweet; starts crisp, and finishes creamy and slightly astringent, with a long bitterness.

Poured from tap at the Yard House in Portland. Aroma is grassy and somewhat barnyard. Has a hoppy bite with a strong grassy flavor to it. Finishes bitter and beautiful.

commonmac (414) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Tap in a tulip glass at Butcher and the Boar with commonshawn. Visually right up my alley. Big frothy head on a mahogany colored ale. Aroma is mostly hoppy with a hint of malt. The head shows a willingness to stick around. Taste really feels like an imperial IPA...plenty hopness. Aggressive like most Stone varieties. I have a strong desire for a more balance...more sweetness or sour/tart fruit. A really well done beer as expected from this brewery...just not as amazing as I thought it would be.
