3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber with a beige head. Strong oak arrogant bastard aroma - caramel malts and red fruit that tend towards the barleywine style. Strong fresh floral and pine hops. Bitter pine and herbs with a lot of those sweet caramelized malts and bitter pine. Some booze in their as well. Strong on the malts and bitter pine. Decent but really these boozy malty and cloyingly bitter beers aren’t my thing anymore.

The aroma is malty with hints of hops. Caramel, some raisin, dates and a hint of spruce hops. Pours a brown amber with a big light brown head, mostly diminishing, with excellent lacing. The taste is not sweet, not sour a touch bitter most be umami. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very Good!

Tap. Dark amber. Scattered lace. Nose of sweet caramel malt. Smooth body. Nothing outstandingly unique or splid, but nice malt and hop balance for a good, solid beer.

Stone Lukcy Basartd has a medium, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, rust-red appearance, and a nice lace curtain left on the glass. The aroma is rather bursting, and one picks up strong, but not piney, hop resin, brown, syrupy malt, and sweetness. Taste is the same, and the bitterness balances the sweetness quite well. Mouthfeel is medium, and Lukcy Basartd finishes semi-dry and easy drinking. RJT

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the 650 ml. bottle with a drink by Jan 1, 2015 date. Handsome reddish brown pour with long lasting cream colored head and some lacing. The aroma is of baked malts, orange peel, dark fruit, cedar and earth. The body is medium to full and carbonated. The vibrant earthy bitter hop character expresses itself louder than anything else in the taste. More so than the aroma. Sweetish caramel and toffee malts under it all. Lingering finish.

Pours a dark mahogany with a foamy white head. Aroma is pine, caramel, and resin. Flavor is sweet pine, oak, and resin. Bitterness is medium to high, not quite as bitter as their other "Bastard" ales. Has a full body. Very tasty.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
So so good. Pour is deep mahogany with a medium cream colored head. Almost a perfectly clear beer that reflects like a mirror. Aroma is a good mix of hops and malts with nice pine under tone. Creamy beer that sticks to the tongue and makes the flavors linger for extra enjoyment. Mostly hops but still has a malty sweetness that balances the bitter.
