4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque, dark ruby/copper with a half finger of frothy white head that dissipates quickly. A lot of sticky lacing. Nose is very hop forward with a mix of floral and pine hops. There are a lot of sweet, dark fruits mainly plum and cherry. A smooth balance of caramel and roasted malts. Mouth is very bitter and hoppy up front. A surprising amount of citrus is present with a strong grapefruit presence. That blends perfectly with the dark fruits. Very roasty with some booze, but it’s very well hidden.

A very interesting brew. Doesn’t smell or taste like anything i’ve had before. The brown sugar is definitely there, not sure what to think of this one just yet.

Damn great stuff from Lagunitas. This is somewhere inbetween Sucks and NightTime. Malt forward, without getting bready. Sweet, without getting cloying. Caramel, sugar. Hop forward, great balanced carbonation. Pours a beautiful brown-red.
It’s one of the tastiest seasonals around. Lagunitas are really spectacular!

Sweetness is there but this one is still a blast of hoppiness. If you like Sumpin’ Extra you’ll like this one too, I still prefer Sumpin’ Wild.

Bottle. Bright red with tight tan head. Burnt floral aroma. Sweet brown sugar in the taste with the signature lagunitas hop bitterness. Also notes of caramel, and warm booze. Medium body, average carb. A great winter seasonal brew.

Poured from a 12 oz. Aroma is slightly floral. Flavor is somewhat sweet and hoppy. It has a resinous, biscuit flavor...but not overwhelming with brown sugar. Definitely has a sweet aftertaste. Not bad!

Bottle. Almost clear. Dark amber. Nose of resin, caramel, cheese, alcohol. Taste is cough syrup, caramel, licorice, scorched sugar. Mouthfeel has a bite up front, spritzy in the middle, smooth-ish warm finish. Overall this is a pretty nice tasting f-up.

Fantastic Beer. Finishes a bit sticky for my liking, although hardly a fault, as the name suggests it's sweet.
