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.

AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice, dark reddish brown with a nice white head, nice lacing. Aroma is hoppy, but with a solid malt backbone. Notes of citrus, pine, fresh cut grass, and a hint of oak come out. As it warmed, I got some faint notes of bourbon and vanilla. Mouthfeel is crisp and thick at the same time. The flavor brings out some alcohol, but is sweet, finishing dry with a nice hoppy aftertaste. Much better than the three it is comprised of on their own.

Pours deep reddish amber topped by a sticky off-white head. This beer is an assault of hops, particularly the Pacific Northwestern varieties that are full of citrus and pine. Some peach and mango in the flavor as well. This is an awesome beer!

Maddog (524) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Wow, what a surprise. I wasnt expecting this beer to be this diverse and flavorful. The aroma is amazingly hoppy with fruit and pine. The pour is clear, dark amber with little head, but the flavors explode with sweet fruits, malt and a huge presence of sticky, resinous grapefruit like hops. A great beer with a huge, bitter finish. Another stud from Stone.

Pretty awesome brew. Looks identical to Arrogant Bastard, but smells distinctly different, possibly from the oak. Wonderful taste, but with a distinct alcohol burn at the end, which I dont remember from either AB or DAB. Great beer.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Pour from a bottle gave a familiar appearance of AB. Brown amber hues. Flavors are somewhat you would expect from the mix of the three beers. Rich malt, bitter hops, faint oakiness , and balanced finish. Pretty cool idea but this doesnt match the greatness of the three individual beers.

Beerman6686 (6505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2011
This poured a semi cloudy dark red to brown color with an off white head. Aroma was of lots of resinous piney hops, and lots of grapefruit too. Some malt can be detected as well. Flavor was very very bitter, a good amount of pine and fruits, mainly grapefruit, and then some toasted caramel malt to try to balance it out. Overall a tongue bruiser that remains just balanced enough at the same time.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2011
22 oz bottle. Copper brown color with a thin off white, almost beige, head. Very lightly carbonated. Big hop nose of grapefruit, pine, and grass. Taste is a hop bouquet. Layers of hoppiness stack upon one another in the mouth. Tart citrus, then pine, a brief pause, and then a long bitternes builds in towards the back of the mouth and then settles into the back of the throat where it stays until the next sip. The malt is completely inconsipicuous but must be there because something is holding all of these flavors together. I would love to vertically taste all of the ABs alongside this because I have a suspcion that this one will be my favorite.

22oz bomber from Tops in Tempe, AZ. Aside from the strong desire to downvote this one due to the incredibly stupid/annoying label, this was a darn good beer! Pours clear copper with a reddish tinge and a thin but lingering light tan head. Aroma is hearty, earthy, caramel, and booze. Flavor brings lots of oak, offset by a touch of caramel malt and a good dose of spicy hops. Heat from the spice and the booze seems especially strong for an 8.5 ABV brew, which was really the only setback (other than that damn label!)

skmikeg (1822) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Pours a Reddish Copper Colr with a foamy tan head with nice lacing. aroma is of big hops and some malt, wiht alot of grapefruit, pine resin, and some carmel malts. flavor is of grapefruit, pine, carmel, cantelope, dark fuir, and alchool. has a medium-full body with a oily moutfeel and a bitter, long finnish. overall, a nice mix of stone arrogant bastards.

Suttree (6194) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Reddish copper, with a huge, off-white head. Smells pretty much like a regular Arrogant Bastard - Big piney, resiny hops and a little bit of booze. Flavor is surprisingly oaky, considering that Oaked AB is only a 3rd (?) of the mix. In fact, I would go so far as to say that oak is the dominate flavor characteristic, followed by piney hops and alcohol. Not much malt really, except to give some body, I guess.
