On Arrogant Bastard Ale's 13th birthday, we threw all our Bastard's together. Arrogant Bastard, Oaked Arrogant Bastard and Double Bastard ale - to create Lukcy Basartd. Later, a crime was committed against this gorgeous beer by adding an absurd amount of freshly harvested local peppers, including mid-level head red and green jalapenos, and ultra-hot black nagas, Caribbean red hots, Moruga scorpions and fatalis, and thus Crime was born. Aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels.

    A beer that makes no sense in the fact that one or even 3 people can't finish the bottle. It is very hot to the point of making it impossible to finish. In a sample pour it makes sense as the base beer is very well made and the peppers are big and powerful. For the style it a good beer but in the end its just too hot. Worth trying but you need friends.

    Pours a bubbly clear chestnut with a thick and fluffy pale buff head. Malty flavor has a definite peppery overtone, almost like pepper jack cheese - maybe a wee bit too peppery. I’m not averse to peppers, but in beer? Well, the next phase will decide that. Flavor is - i yi yi yi yi, did I just drink beer, or El Diablo hot sauce? Sorry, but the peppers are too much - they definitely ruin an otherwise good beer. I’m afraid this is a drain pour. Drat - and I have so enjoyed everything else that I have tried from Stone Brewing. :(

    Uh...well...they were NOT screwing around with this beer. I LOVE hot stuff. Peppers, sauces, whatever. The initial aroma out of the bottle and at first pour, though, scared me a little. While I still think this could have been better with a little restraint, I did enjoy it. However, the bar had been set VERY VERY high with the previous Scotch barreled/Stone Farm versions of Crime (& Punishment). This was way way hotter. It took some time, and some woek, for the barrel, or the base beer, to really make an appearance. I could feel the barrel before I could taste it. It did open up, but was still very heavily pepper dominated, with oak, bourbon, a carmelly fruity sweetness, and hops all just making a guest appearance. Good, especially for this pepper lover, but I gotta admit, I was hoping for pure excellence, based on the prior release. Stay away from this if you don't automatically order "nitro" when that is an option. You've been warned. I have two bottles, but will not buy more at the high price. :(

    500ml bottle -

    If you don't like spice/heat, especially in your beer stay far away from this. Sweet chili aroma. Deep caramel chili flavor. It's hot. And sweet. I liked it. I got no bourbon/oak at all. Heat and sweet.
