Lukcy Basartd Ale with Peppers Added & Aged in Bourbon Barrels
BREWED JULY 31ST, 2013
On Arrogant Bastard Ale’s 13th birthday, we threw all our Bastards together —Arrogant Bastard Ale, OAKED Arrogant Bastard Aleand Double Bastard Ale—to create Lukcy Basartd Ale. Later, a crime was committed against this gorgeous beer by adding an absurd amount of freshly harvested local peppers, including mid-level-heat red and green jalapeños and ultra-hot black nagas, Caribbean red hots, Moruga scorpions and fatalis, and thus Crime was born.
Ultra-hot with fruity flavors from the peppers up front, along with notes of green jalapeño. Flavors of caramel, hops and oak from the barrel-aged beer come through mid-palate, followed by a ton of pervasive, long-lingering, fiery aftertaste.
