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 Ale…with 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.

zoucrew102 (2238) - - JAN 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2014 1/1/13 Strong hoppy aroma. Dark amber colored and cloudy with a thin head. Hoppy and bitter at first but not overpowering. Finishes smooth and dry with oaky notes. Very good. 7/4/2014 Bomber with enjoy by date of Jan. 2013 that got lost in the cellar. Whoops, but perhaps a happy mistake. Strong caramel malt and dark fruit aroma with a bit of booze. Pours cloudy amber colored with tan head and good lacing. Taste is now more like a barleywine than it was before with sweet caramel and dark fruit to start. Finishes dry with a bit of booze and a little bit of hops for a very west coast style. Interesting development as most of the hoppiness is gone and replaced with caramel and dark fruit sweetness.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 I’m gonna keep this simple. If you like Arrogant Bastard and Whisky you’ll love this beer. I love the Smokey oak aftertaste myself.

Solid beer that is simply a Giant blend of malt & hop. Pours amber w/ a frothy beige head & loads of lacing. The aroma is dominated by semi sweet caramel malt. The taste is quite malty for about 2/3 of the taste before a lingering bitterness creeps in at the finish. It's bold but relatively straight forward. Decent!

bergstaden (3327) - Røros, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2017
Amber with off white head - Fruity and herbal hop aroma - Malt body that has a good hop bitterness and wood - The hops goes into the finish with bitterness - This was good

Bomber. Piny, caramel, big nose. Glowing red-brown. Sweet caramel and pine, rich malt, full body. Just another in the long list of Bastards that are pretty much all the same. Not bad.

Probably too old for rating, but hey, it’s still on the shelf at the beer store, so fair game, right? Smells good, tons of Bastard malt with a strong herbal hop presence, and the pour’s sexy enough. Tastes kind of muddled,though, like none of the various Bastard iterations present want to take the prominent role you want. Kind of a why bother beer, to be honest. I mean, Oaked Bastard’s the shit, so why dilute it with its brethren? Still tasty though, with the massive bitter back end of AB coming through while the sweet-bun caramel heft of Double Bastard thickens up the middle. Oak never really plays a part, unfortunately, and as a whole the beer kinda seems more gimmicky than great.

gyllenbock (10027) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle bought in San Diego. Dark amber with a medium head. On the sweet side with malt, caramel, light hops and some wood. The body was almost full and the finish long.

@Eddan 17-2-25: stor ton an malt och socker. Lite business as usual jämfört med Stones andra bastard-öl. Ok men inte jättespännande.

VinegarStroke (452) - Napa, California, USA - FEB 12, 2017
22oz bottle: Deep amber or brown. Good head and lace. Big caramel, malty nose. This bottle has some age and the nose is pretty integrated. Very rich malty palate. Significant bitterness. very long and intense. It’s dark. I can’t see the oak. There’s a meal in every glass.

Oscbert (1339) - Lincoln, California, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Strong hoppy aroma, woody, piney, and citrus. With bready and caramel hops. Pours a dark ruby color with small off white head. Strong alcohol flavor with piney hop, woody, bready malt. Full bodied medium co2, lingering woody hop. I prefer arrogant bastard. This is a bit much for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Burnt amber pour with tan head. Aroma is malty cut grass. Taste is roast malt, molasses and bitter grass. Good stuff.
