COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Marheb (5253) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2011
UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Splendide arme de fruits exotiques provenant dun assemblage de houblons assez spectaculaire. Lventail de saveurs provoques par le houblon est impressionnante et avec le oak aged en suspens, on a une bire parfaite. Plus complexe quune impriale IPA, moins linaire mais terriblement bien balanc.

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 17, 2017
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of caramel, oak, dark fruit, esp. cherry, some alcohol fumes, and maybe something lightly phenolic. Light mahogany color, beige head, spotty lace. Flavors of caramel, oak, light citrus, dark fruit, very rugged hopping, burnt sugar, and seroious deep bittering in finish. Medium body. Very rich stuff. But at the same time a bit muddled. Seem stronger than 8.5%.

Stone throws another beauty. Red awesome balanced glory. Appearance is so so. But the taste is perfect. Balanced malt and hops.

chadski (101) - California, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Beautiful pour from a bottle. A bit of honey in the aroma. Flavor has initial brown sugar sweetness but balanced by a hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Habanero (4365) - Tranbjerg, Denmark, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2017
Bottled. Pours clear mahagony with a small, lacing beige head. Aroma of toasted caramel, orange zest, wood and piney notes. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Ale. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

The brilliant, beautiful bastards at Stone never fail me with their Bastard releases. Lucky Bastard basically looks like everything else in the lineup - ruby red color and excellent retention of of the creamy tan-colored foam. Earthy hop aromatics and caramel malt on the nose. The taste showcases earthy, piney hops and faintly chocolaty malt. Theres quite a lot of bitterness coming from the hops, but its restrained by the fat malt. Stone proves, once again, that its good to be a bastard.

I think I may like this better than regular bastard. Nice fresh cone hop aroma. Clear dark red, nice real nice carbonation with off white head. Wonderful mouthfeel of hops and malts.

Giochaurand (485) - FINLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle from Kavu. Pours clear ruby red with some bubbles. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel. Flavour is malty and bitter, as if I would have put fresh hops in my mouth.

0,65l bottle from a collague from Boston. Pours clear amber with a low head with big bubbles. Flavor is lightly roasted malts, nuts, caramel, alcohol and hops. Very good.

Finally got a chance to try Lucky Bastard! I think the last time this was made CBB had just opened and I passed on it thinking Ill try it next year... ...little did I know it would then disappear for several years until I spotted this bottle on Rakuten. It was bottled on October 13 and is best before January 11th so its getting a bit long in the tooth I guess. For this brew I cracked out my IPA glass in which I got a deep copper red color and a huge beige head that leaves copious lacing behind. Straight from the fridge it is a bit on the cold side but gives me lots of sweet fruity hops, hints of oak and I even detect tobacco leaf. Medium bodied with a slightly raspy mouthfeel the taste is big bitter pine up front, then oak & dry whole tobacco leaf with some orange citrus notes in the finish. Too bitter for me but interesting and Im glad I got to try it. If you love hops or Stone you should get your hands on this.

Wow look at this. The head fades fast and is the bad part. But thats the end of negative. Aroma is perfect and amazing. Some dank and some strong citrus aroma. Super thick but good balance of sweet and hop. Perfect thickness on tongue with hop sharpness. Carmel sting dank hop light pine. Well done!
