Shared bottle. Clear, deep mahogany pour, medium white head. Toffee aroma, some booziness, vanilla, fairly sweet overall. Taste came up much more bitter than expected. Full, slightly syrupy body.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, dark mahogny colored beer with a three finger high, creamy and fluffy head that leaves a lot of lacing.
Nose: Dried fruit, pear, sweet caramel malt, pine, brown sugar and honey.
Taste: A lot of malt! Chewy, pine, oak, caramel, grass and some grapefruit.
Mouthfeel: Full body. Very sweet and thick body. I think this will grow better with aging in my beercellar. A little bit to sweet right now! Medium carbonation. Bittersweet ending.

DATE TASTED: March 4, 2016... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... OCCASION: the first day of baseball practice--and for the first time in seven years, I am not there! To Bob, Butch, Kyle, Adam and Rob--this one’s for you... APPEARANCE: dark ruby body that lets in little light but supports a thick, creamy off-white head that craters slightly and resembles a nitro stout...lacing is significantly hazing... AROMA: strong malts are front and center, with fresh dough, caramel and spices like soft pepper, raisin, and chocolate--not as dynamic as other Lagunitas offerings... PALATE: warm, thick and significant in its trip across the tongue; dry at the finish... TASTE: raisin, dough and prune make for a sweet, barley-forward experience akin to a barleywine... OVERALL:another BIG beer from Lagunitas that lacks the diverse profile of other Lagunitas offerings, but still brings high alcohol and powerful mouthfeel.... this could just as easily create a hangover as cure one... tough to find the hops here, but this is a beer to say goodbye to winter with...

22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep ruby red color with an off-white head that settles away fairly quickly. Aroma is mostly thick sweet malt. Medium-full body, taste repeats the aroma - sweet. Thick mouthfeel. Warming alcohol after the swallow. Pretty good!

On draught into a snifter. Pours a mahogany brown, with a small tan head. Nose is caramel and toffee, and the taste follows. Creamy mouth feel with a long, smooth finish. Nice.

Flaska från SB. Mörkt brunröd med smutsvitt skum. Brödig doft med inslag av torkad frukt. Lite spritig och syrlig smak med lång beska i eftersmaken.

WOW, love this. But not in a way I’d drink er any time soon. Leaves a great slime like should be around a hairy eyeball. Strangely just tasted a little mint. Not any particular smell except wet? Maybe my nose just plugged. Tastes kinda like a malty gruel.

Bomber from Bradleys. Deep, rusty ruby with little head. Sweet toffee with roasty malts and dark fruits. Sweet malty flavour with a ton of booze. Better as it warmed.
