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.

zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a small yellow-ish head. Aroma is a burst of hops with slight malty sweetness. Strong hop flavors along with alcohol presence in the taste, with some sweetness to it. As said in the description, it is between Arrogant Bastard and the Double Bastard in flavor and strength. Average carbonation that leaves the palate cleanly. Some lacing left on the glass.

A good one and Im glad I did try it but it does not measure up to Arrogant Bastard!

Una cerveza increble, desde el aroma, el sabor, el cuerpo, la pinta, tiene todo lo que puedes pedir de una cerveza ale

Foxbush (1857) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2016 22 oz Bottle from Growlers to Go in Short Pump, VA This is an amazing ale. The ale poured a clear dark amber or mahogany with tan head and lacing. The aroma of licorice, brown sugar and caramel malts greets you. The taste is very complex with citrus hops challenging pine resin. This is highest I have rated a beer in awhile. This ale deserves it! The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. The finish is clean with some hop bitterness in the upper mouth. Last night I had a tour of the Stone Brewery in Richmond. Impressive with an excellent tour guide.

tightslice (1074) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is malts, caramel, oaky, earthy. A very solid strong ale but was hoping for more complexity (and maybe wood notes) based on the concoction.

ordybill (1447) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Poured from a 25 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark amber color and a medium sized beige head. The aroma is malt, pine, hops and some alcohol. The taste mirrors the nose. An outstanding beer.

stevoj (4170) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Draft at BitterCreek. Pours out a nice rich mahogany color with a small beige head. Aroma started off with some dark pit fruit, some tangy citrus, caramelly malts. Taste followed with more of the same, and a bit of the ABV and hops kicking in at the finish. Pretty accessible and tasty too.

IndianaRed (3983) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 18, 2016
On Tap dark clear mahogany. Full very thick and dense creamy beige head and lacing. Rich smooth and farily dry toasted malt flavors. Some hop bitterness and balanced but not much hop flavor. Clean strong and a little boozey. Nice mellow blended flavors. A easy drinking strong beer.

4.4
   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
malrubius (2654) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle from Brewtopia. Warm off the shelf. Garnet reddish brown with lasting dense head and lace. Woody leafy hops with a touch of citrus aroma with bready nougat and caramel and booze. Caramel lightly toasted mild ripe cherry maple syrup brown sugar sweetness with woody leafy spicy fairly dry finish with a some lingering wood and a touch of booze. Medium full body and wicked soft carb, probably because its warm. Totally FUCKIN EXCELLENT.

Gluepot (499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2016
More stone bite. A dense off white head on a deep mahogany body. Nose is dank hops, citrus and brown sugar. A nice biting hop profile leads the way. Pineapple, lemon, pine resin, grapefruit and grass hops dont let you off easy. Biscuity malt, caramel and honey take a clear second bill to the bitterness. Nice carbonation, and a solid mid density body add to a slick mouth feel. Oh, stop it, Stone people.

Pours a nice deep dark golden brown. Aromas of hay, hop flowers, carmel malts, candy sugar, honey. Flavor: oak, caramel malts, grapefruit, light hops, brown sugar, and alcohol
