(Bottle) Pours Dark Brown with a great haed. The aroma was awesome. I got hops malts and all sorts of spices. Loved the deep flavors. This will get you in trouble fast. Not a swliing type beer you must like beer to enjoy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown with a thick beige head that lasted through the entire glass. Light, sweet aroma. Flavor is initially slightly sweet with caramel. Dry, hoppy finish. There is an alcohol presence, but it is not overwhelming. Good stuff. My only complaint is why would you bottle this in a "twist-off" bottle?

(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a reddish brown mahogany with a beige coloured head. Roasted, malty aroma. Accents of roasted malt and caramel. Dry with some lightly port-like notes. Dry finish. Lagunitas rarely offers bad beers, but even more rarely they offer something outstanding. 270106
