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.

hershiser2 (1827) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Bomber from Market Street Wine Shop - downtown. So it says don’t cellar - well, this has been precellared because they never sold it. Best by January 1, 2015, sampling 2/5/16. Pours a murky reddish brown. Aroma of dark fruits, a hint of smoke, earthy. Lightly sweet and lightly spiced. Taste is lightly funky fruits, chocolates, raisins, wood, alcohol, pine, citrus peel, cover. I wonder how much the "drink me now, don’t cellar" mattered.

Bottle from a friend. Darkish pour with an amazing head on this one. Aromas of dark fruit and some citrus hops. Flavors of wood and raisin and bitter hops. My favorite Bastard I think.

BeerRenter76 (654) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally sampled on 12/2/14. Deep amber colored body with a thin off white cap that leaves some spotty lace. Aromas of sweet slightly toasted malts, lots of grapefruit, citrus, and pine. Flavor is predominantly pine sap and grapefruit rinds, some oak in there as well and some lightly toasted malts. None of the sweetness from the aroma crosses over. Overall another good brew from Stone..

markducommun (821) - 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 (2891) - 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.
