(22oz bottle, courtesy of AmEricanbrew) Pours a mahogany body with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted grain, grapefruit, and herbs. Flavor of roasted malt, citrus, grass, caramel malt, and pine with a moderately bitter finish.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Draught @ brewpub. Nice cloudy copper pour covered by a delicate light beige head. A strongly aromatic, very toasty, caramel laden ale with a fun roasty twist that adds a roasted grain side that would fit in a big brown ale. That’s not what we have though, here’s a hop-forward, punchy Portland ale. Strong and perfumey, fresh, citrusy, resinous hops bring plenty of bitterness to balance out the caramel. Very good stuff, whose freshness is deployed on the tongue and provides the most effective cleansing, effective carbonation that makes the whole ensemble very easy-going. Feels much better than the sum of its parts. In one phrase, this is what Lagunitas probably aims for under 40 different labels.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle thanks to olympuszymurgus!Transparent dark brown, red highlights. Dank mint, earthy nose of light flour. Flavor is more malt up front, light green bitterness and pine with something that reminds me of cat litter. Very salty, piney earth finish. Light profile throughout, nothing dominates the other elements, but then again there isn’t much here.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2010
Pours a lovely deep molasses black with a brief brown head. Earthy light hop aroma. Slightly sweet brown ale with a very earthy taste, lightly biting hop bitterness. Good carb, thinnish body. Quaffable, but slightly odd earthy taste.

Big thanks to Kevin for sharing this one! A-pours a brownish liquid with red esges. a light tan colored head is tight with great lace. S-hint of roasted maltiness, dark chocolate, burnt coffee up front. herbal marijuanna hops come through big time. touch of tea leaves accompany. T-the taste brings a light roasted malt, hints of smokiness. the herbal hops take over, touch of tea leaves and earthy. a little thinned out in the back. M-extremely smooth on the palate, lighter body, low carbonation that falls off in the back and is a little thin in boddy. D-pretty tasty, falls off in the back, the nose was great but the taste falls a little short of that. very earthy and dank like.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2010
22 oz. bomber courtesy of a trade with DA. Pours very dark brown, just about black, with a moderate tan head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of fruity grapefruit along with some very mild malt. The flavor is most definitely tilted towards the hops with strong pine and grapefruit bitterness. Given the darkness of the beer, I thought there would be more of a roasted malt backbone, but the malt is very subdued. Moderate-strong bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. One for the hopheads.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this beer. The beer pours a dark brownish-red color with a white head. The aroma is strong resiny hops with some roasted malt. The flavor is resiny hops with just the lightest amount of roasted malt. Still, this beer is all about the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. The smell is malts, hops, more malts, roasty, and slight chocolate. The look is brown, clear, not much head. The taste is hops, slight malts, more fruits.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a decent tan head and toasty aroma. There is a well-balanced flavor featuring roasted malt and tasty hops. It reminds me of an English stong ale.
