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.

Not the best offering in the Bastard series of beers from Stone. This one features a dark amber color with a minimal off-white head. The nose features some hops, citrus, yeast, bread and earth. The big downer of this beer is the odd, yeasty and alcoholic flavor. The balance seems a bit off. I got a lot more yeasty and earthy flavor than spicy hops.

1/14/11. Bomber courtesy Ian! Huge hoppy aroma loaded with fresh grass and citrus. Hugely bitter flavor that lingers sweet and caramelly with an exhale of huge fresh hops. Solid!

Oh yea! Classic Stone! Really a top notch brew. Full of solid malts. Great on the way down. Served ice cold. Great flavoring, bit on the hopping.

Strykzone (7355) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Thanks Hayduke! Pour is clear dark copper brown with a decent light tan head. It never quite fades completely. Nose is grapefruit, raisins, spice, and caramel. Grapefruit tartness and bitterness are prominent throughout. They are not shy, either. Raisins, toastiness, tangerine. A fizzy feel but it is also substantial. Monsterous hops. Massive amounts of malt, too but they are over matched. Delicious, huge, and fantastic.

20110117 bomber from Wine World. Not a huge difference overall here from a fresh Double Bastard, but it does have a sharper resinous bitterness a a more subdued sweetness that is replaced by a woody smoothing. Lingering bitterness and some bubblegum. Almost immediate resinous hop burps. A bit less carbonated than I recall for the Bastards, but maybe just my imagination. Anyway, it’s pretty good and I enjoy seeing Stone take a tongue in cheek approach to this idea rather than just labeling it a grand cru, which I suppose they could ahve rightly done.

Block (2722) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Dark amber pour with an off white head. Aroma is sweet and pungent. Medium to full body with a syrupy sweetness that finishes strong, bitter and a little alcoholic. I can’t say that I can distinguish between the different bastards that are mixed in while drinking this but the feel is more closely related to Double Bastard.

Nice citrus aroma with slight resin background. Great balance of hop bitterness with a nice melding of sweetness that is unclear but has hints of caramel. A nice blend made by one of my favorite breweries between two of their most delicious day to day beers..oh yea with a kick

Fresh bomber. Pours a deep amber color with a thin tan head on top. Caramel, resin, grapefruit, toffee, toasted malt aroma. Definitely hoppy, as expected with Stone. The flavor is where this one shines though with the classic Stone hop bill. Bitter resins and grapefruit supported by a thick malty backbone. Sweet toffee and caramelized malts contribute to the hefty body. This is hopped aggressively so that the dry bitter hops can match, and overtake all that malt. The dry hopping is evident. I don’t know why, anything hoppy from Stone tends to be good, but I was aprehensive about this one. I guess I’m not as big into the Imperial Red, or American Strongs these days but this one is well done, just like Stone 13th was very well done.

alobar (3778) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma of hops, pine, caramel, and citrus. Powerful hop bitterness with caramel, pine and citrus. Big beer. Big taste and not for the faint of palate.
