Laughing Lab has a nourishing maltiness that comes from six specialty malts. Its nutty, roasted flavor is mildly sweet, but not too rich. Smooth and luscious!

Aroma: Intense sweet caramel and nuttiness. No citrus hop aroma detectable from aroma. Appearance: Rich brown color, not hazy or cloudy, medium head retention. Nice clarity. Taste: Medium sweet flavor, no hop bitterness or sourness detectable. Palate: Average to lively carbonation, medium body, abrupt finish. Finishes clean with fresh with one sip asking for another! Overall: Iíve always enjoyed this beer. Darker in color and appearance than flavor, Iím always surprised with how easy it drinks compared to how dark it is. Well executed and enjoyable. Laughing Lab is not going to challenge your palate and that is OK with me. Great option for someone looking to enjoy multiple beers without being overwhelmed or fatigued.

Great dark amber color. Nose has plenty of caramel but the taste lacks that flavor. Pick up a light bitter flavor.

Has a slightly hazy reddish/brown color. Aroma is malty and sweet. Lots of malt flavor with caramel notes and a good amount of sweetness. A well balanced beer with some nuttiness and a hint of bitterness on the finish. No flavors come across as too intense which makes this a good session beer.

A: Fainter than I would like, but plenty of nutty, chocolate notes A: Clear, nut brown, amber body with a rapidly disapating head T: Lighter bodied, malt forward, sweet chocolate, hazelnut P: Carbonation definitely present leading to lingering bubbles on the tongue O: Scottish Ales are not a common style so it is tough to compare, but in terms of classic style, this beer is malt forward, low hop presence and slightly sweet. It just doesnít have the clean finish or balance that leaves me wanting more.

Poured in a chilled glass out of the bottle. Nice Amber/copper color. Doesnít pour too much head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and Malts. Flavor is real balanced and the taste has low to medium bitterness. All in all, great beer for the style.

12 oz. bottle, from the bottle. Thanks, Steve! Good malty character, with notes of peat, cereal, and hay. Sweet flavor, with a minimal bitterness. Light to medium body, grainy, lightly carbonated, and crisp and clean. This is a fun, malty, and approachable beer.

hayduke (4947) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Sampled as GABF 2015. In the tasting glass pours amber with almost no foam. Nose of caramel malts. Medium body. Flavor is malts and some floral hops. Some bite in finish. The label is too much like Laughing Dog Brewery for me to be comfortable.

From a 12 oz bottle into a Mad Elf tulip glass. Pours brown with small head and lace. Aroma of caramel malts, malt balls. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of amber malts, caramel, minerals, peat, young melon. Overall flavorful although light on the malt, but not bad.
