Pours a beautiful mahogany with a lathery two finger head of foam.

Caramel, pine, citrus, dark fruits, and oak.

Vanilla, oak, raisins, dates, caramel, citrus, and pine. Hop resin aftertaste with some dark fruit as well.

Heavy bodied, medium-heavy caronation, resinous on the front end, dry finish.

Overall, this is one complex bastard.

Stone Lukcy Basartd has a medium, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, rust-red appearance, and a nice lace curtain left on the glass. The aroma is rather bursting, and one picks up strong, but not piney, hop resin, brown, syrupy malt, and sweetness. Taste is the same, and the bitterness balances the sweetness quite well. Mouthfeel is medium, and Lukcy Basartd finishes semi-dry and easy drinking.

22 oz. bottle poured into a Heavy Seas tulip

So, glad that they re-released this and along with a BA version as well.

A: Beautiful amber-tinged copper color. Some lacing and a fast receding head. Almost no collar.
S: Sweet malts and resinous pine hops.
T: This is crazy hoppy. It really comes across as an Imperial Red/Amber ale. The sweetness from the malts is definitely in there. A bit sweet, but lots of resinous hop oils in there to meld with it and just taste delicious. I really wonder how this would taste in a year from now.
M: Nice bit of carbonation that fluffs it up just enough to best deliver the flavor.
O: This might be the best of the bunch. I want to say that it is definitely the hoppiest one. The Double Bastard probably beats it for aging, but who can beat a pre-made brewery cuvee?

From the 650 ml. bottle with a best by Jan 1, 2015 date. Sampled on December 13, 2014 (12-13-14).

Lovely looking brown-red pour with a lingering cream colored head and a touch of lacing.

The aroma is of roasted caramel malts, dark fruit (until it warms), and earthy hops.

The body is better than medium but it is a highly carbonated beer so I burped quite a lot. Ecxuse me. My paly on the Dyslexia influenced laebl.

The earthy and cedar hops come across more vibrantly in the flavor with a roasted malt undercurrent. Somewhat bitter finale. More drinkable than I expected.
