Lukcy Basartd is a dry-hopped meeting-of-the-Bastards in a in-the-fermenter-blend of Arrogant Bastard Ale and Double Bastard Alewith 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.

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with almost no head retention. Aromas of the arrogant bastard. lots of caramel and floral hops with a nice malt backbone. Taste is bitterness up front. Lots of malt as well. Pretty good but nothing amazing. Really not much different from the Arrogant Bastard.....surprise? Same score as the Arrogant. I suck.

osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Pours a nice deep reddish brown with a tan long lasting head. Aroma of citrus hops with some caramel malt notes as well. Flavor of pine hops and raisin skins with a decent sweet/caramel malt backbone. Initially the bitterness was overpowering, but then mellowed out nicely.

sherm1016 (1273) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2011
22oz Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, oak. Body is medium on the palate with average carbonation. Taste is sweet up front and bitter on the back end, with a complex mix of malt, hop, and oak flavors. There is a lot going on in this beer, and it just seems a bit muddled to me.

Rich, robust, hoppy and malty. This is a good brew. I thought it wouldnt be interesting since its just a blend of Arrogant Bastard, Double Bastard and Oaked Arrogant Bastard, but I was wrong. Its a good blend.

boto (2140) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 6, 2011
22oz bomber: This one pours a red-tinged coppery color. It is a touch hazy and starts with about a finger of off-white foam. Interesting aroma. The first things that I get are oakiness and a lot of pine and citrus hops. I almost get a touch of sourness to the citrus hops. You can tell there are a fair amount of malts in there also, but they are hidden by the hops. The taste is up front with the citrus hops, but balanced with the malts nicely. Dont get me wrong, there are a ton of hops but they are somewhat muted with the malts. Some raostiness, oakiness, caramel and a dry finish: no sweetness here at all. Nice.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Appearance: polished old woods with mahogany glints. A broken film is all that remains of a fairly restrained heady pour. A bubbly collar lingers while swirls produce a bit of whitish tufts that in turn cling to sides of my glass.
Nose: hoppy, woody, barky, and some white oak for good measure. Apple and pear flesh. Bitterness of pine resins in the back along with pine cones and fir tree needles. Caramel red apple crunchies. The wood and bark is nicely pervasive and just abrasive enough.
Palate: clean powerful bitterness quenches and induces thirst at same time. Almost waxy along with a piney resiny polished bite. Caramelized crunchy sweetness. Cinnamon sticks for spice along with generic dry brown spices and wood. Hop cones dance atop my tastebuds. Citrus skins.
Final Thoughts: another fine in-your-face beer from Stone Brewing. Read the back label if you can, if you dare try. Overall in the wide beery scheme of things though I still prefer their standard Arrogant Bastard and Oaked Arrogant Bastard.

hirigalzkar (3020) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours orange with a creamy white head. Fresh citrus hops in aroma. Lots of GRAPE in the taste. Also small woodiness, burned caramel. Actually quite balanced in all its arrogance. Creamy teture.

finol (3218) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours red brownish with a beige head, looks realy nice when given a whirl! Lots of bastardness but the unbleded versions are better.

anderson01 (343) - Idaho, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Licorece, grenn apple and hops is what pops out in the aroma. This beer has an awesome appearance. Dark brown in color. Has a rocky, thick caramel -color head with lacing that holds on to the side of your glass. Bitter/sweet flavor. This beer hits the palate slightly bitter and finishes with a watermelon flavor. This beer was very enjoyable.
