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.

ordybill (1525) - 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.

DocLock (10215) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bombers from Capones, Craft Ale, and Smiths. Pours mahigany toward deep ruby/brown with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is huge spirits, fruity, cherry, hops, peaty oaky bourbon. Tastes oaky, spirity, with a huge resiny hop flavor, and finishing cherry cognacy flavors. Very complex, and a synergistic mix of the two bastards. Very very good.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2010
This beer pours a very deep amber almost black with a large tan head. The aromas are citrus, pine, dough, smoked malt. The mouthfeel is heavy with a stickiness and medium carbonation ending very dry and bitter with a little smoke. This was a great beer! One of the best beers Ive had! Cant wait to have another. Cheers!

THOUGHTS: Sampled in a Double Bastard glass, which was a Christmas gift from my wife. It was nothing earth-shattering, but was perfectly balanced and better than the sum of the three beers blended. A fine example of wine just happening and beer being crafted. It may have been high in IBUs, but the malt balances things so well that the hop flavors and not the hop bitterness is the star of the show. Hid alcohol fairly well. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark reddish, orangey amber with a small to average, creamy, golden beige or cream-colored head that left excellent lacing. The aroma was great, but slightly weak at ties. There was moderate to heavy molasses and caramel; heavy pine, grapefruit and orange hops; lighter resinous hops; apple, cherry, hints of wood, vanilla and light alcohol. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and rather bitter while the finish was rather sweet ad heavily bitter with a very long duration. There was brown sugar, caramel malt, pine hops, grapefruit hops, candied grapefruit, other citrus hops, vanilla, slight wood, a hint of smoke, resinous hops, cherry and slight grape. The heavier than medium body was oily yet creamy with fairly soft yet tingly carbonation and a slightly alcoholic and very dry finish.

hopheadsbrew (142) - Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Reddish copper color. Thick creamy head. Toasted caramel and citrus. Some wild fruits and a cookie like smell. A burst of flavor to start. Very intense blend. Malt and piney earthy hops. Lots and lots of hops.

SPDickerman (1219) - Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours rich burnished copper with a large light beige head. Smells of bold hops, larger than life malts, and a touch of oak. Taste is bitter, grapefruit, and some caramel and toffee sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Stone Lukcy Basartd Ale finishes with a bitter tingle.
