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.

mkade8883 (250) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Pours a deep brown-amber color with tinted tan head. Aroma is full of caramel malt and arrogance. The flavor hits you with a hammer, full of bitterness from both hops and chocolate malt. At first, super aggressive but surprisingly drinkable.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Deep amber color pour with a foamy top. Aroma of hops and a bit of malt and wood. Flavor is exactly what you would expect a Stone Bastard brew to be. No surprises, but very good.

halfonit (1343) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Pours a deep amber color. Aroma is of hops, tree bark, and citrus. Flavor is of centennial hops, cascade hops, and grapefruit. Leaves a very strong hop finish. This is definitely not for people who dont like hops.

I am a Lukcy Bastard for trying this beer! aroma is sweet hops. Pours a transparent brown with a nice off whiite head. All kinds of cool crap floating around inside the glass! taste is a great hop punch, with a very filling mouth feel. Aftertaste is nice and bitter. Too bad I only have 1 bottle!

Appearance: slight haze , ruby-brown with large creamy top. Sticky lace on glass walls. 4-
Flavour and Palate: Medium plus bodied. Leafy overtone hop character. Fairly mild carbonation. Brown-caramel malt blend. Mild hop citric finish. Nice offering but not great one.

Tricountybeer (167) - Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2011
#100 - 22oz bottle pours a lightly hazy, deep copper amber with a thick, creamy, lacing, slightly off white head. Nose has plenty of citrus hops, Its very much an "earthy" brew, so much in the sense that it overwhelms the taste buds to the point where it lingers.Super smooth with soft carbonation and a medium body. An excellent blend. ( Clark)

adam42381 (386) - Fort Myers, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Duvel tulip. Appearance: Pours a dark caramel color with a 2-3 finger fluffy light tan head. Excellent head retention and lacing. Smell: Sweet citrus, pineapple and caramel malt with just a hint of alcohol peeking through in the background. Very fruity hop aroma. Smells great. Taste: Caramel malt up front for just a moment before sweet citrus pops up in the middle leading to a blast of bitter lemon peel and grapefruit with a touch of pine at the finish. Mildly spicy with definite notes of black pepper. Aftertaste is solidly bitter with just a hint of sweet caramel to balance it out. Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. There is a distinct stickiness to the hops that coat the mouth. Drinkability: Pretty good drinkability. The alcohol is masked pretty well, meaning that this one has the potential to sneak up on you. Ill finish the bomber, but spiciness and high alcohol content keep me from wanting any more. Overall: Very good beer overall. As usual, Stone doesnt disappoint. This is definitely worth checking out.

hoppyhampy (73) - , California, USA - JAN 15, 2011
22oz bottle poured into a tulip. No freshness info. Pours clear and brownish red with good carbonation evident. Two fingers of foam. Good lacing. Great nose. Superbly balanced spicy-sweet malt and fresh, lively hops. Very complex. Its tough for me to pick out any distinct aromas. Good mouthfeel. Full bodied but a nice amount of carbonation. A smooth and not too heavy malt infiltrates the palate first but the hops are fast on its heels. The two end up mingling in a very unique way. The hops come through at the end but arent too resiny. Any heavy malt is wiped away and the finish is rather crisp and clean. Quite drinkable. Again, the complexity here doesnt allow my admittedly dull palate to pick out anything distinct but it is very enjoyable. Definitely a different experience from any of the other Bastards.

ttutony (882) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Hazy medium brown in the glass. Aroma of oak, citrus and resiny hops. Caramel malt and dried fruits with more oak on the palate. Potent hop bitterness. Interesting combination of flavors. Full bodied.

I love Arrogant Bastard, Oaked Arrogant Bastard, and Double Bastard, so no surprise I like this one as well. Oak is very subtle here, but one can tell its a blend of those 3. A dark amber color, nice lacing, and a nice appearance in the glass. Plenty of hops in the aroma and hops (grassy) dominate the flavor profile. A nice beer, and an interesting blend of the three ABs.
