Poured from a 650 ml bottle into standard (Stone) pint glass.

A: Dark amber hue. Pours a 1 finger, foamy, white head. Settle slowly. Constant foam blanket. Thick beer ring lacing.

S: Heavy oak chips, molasses, honey, diacetyl all on a nice lightly roasted malt base.

T: Roasted malt, molasses, licorice, peat, pecan shells.

M: Thick, hearty, and roasty. Bittersweet finish. High alcohol apparent.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is good. Foamy head, consistent coverage, pervasive lacing. Nose is roasted malt grains, accentuated with oak, molasses, honey... well done. Malty with plenty of molasses and peat. Overall, this is a great quaff.

From my tasting notes: The brew poured the signature bastard deep ruby amber color with an off white head that lukcily lingered. The aroma had the big malt and hoppy aroma you expect with a Bastard with more of the Arrogant tones showing through. The taste was great. It was all of the Bastards in one place giving their best flavor attributes while complementing the others with a great roasted nuttiness holding it all together. I detected more of the Arrogant flavors which held their own alongside the dominate Double while the thick syrupy mouthfeel and heavy body was definitely all Double. The Lucky Basartd was a great marriage of these fantastic Stone brews that created a Basartd of it’s own.
