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.

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 (6587) - 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 (1826) - 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 (6288) - 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.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bomber. Hazy red-brown pour with a yellowish-white head leaving moderate lace. Flowery, citrus nose. Strong resinous hops with citrus zest, medium malt body with oak, umami and caramel. Sweet and bitter early, bitter, oaky and umami late. The most palatable of all the bastards and my favorite.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Pours a deep burnt orange with a creamy dense orange head. Nose is caramel malts, peach and citrus hops, wood, earthy herbal hops, breads. Taste is a good balance of malt and caramel sweetness and hop bitterness. Solid and slight grassy hop flavor and full slick mouth feel. This is by far the best "bastard" beer ive had. The perfect balance of hops and caramels. Blended so well.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - JAN 1, 2011
The High hop content predominates this beer, as with others of the Bastart series. Underneath the hops there is a mix of flavors which includes caramel, vanilla, cantaloupe, and some dark fruits.

picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2011
22 oz. Thanks to dl. Appearance- Hazy, deep amber, frothy head, Aroma- Citrus, grapefruit, piney with plenty of caramel poking through. Taste- Well balanced oakiness that doesnt overwhelm, sweet caramel up front with some resiny hop flavor. Aggressive bitterness. Palate-Full sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Overall- Although each component of this beer is bold in its own right, it all seems to blend in well and create a very drinkable beer.
