COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Here’s Lookin’ Atcha’!"

Laying there, staring up at the ceiling, head pounding, last night was a dim recollection. How did he get home? Was he alone? Looking to the left and right, the answer was yes, maybe. His head was full of ’rag water, bitters, and the blue ruin’.His teeth felt like he’d been chewing aluminum and his breath smelled like a burning tractor tire. There was a wrenching knot somewhere between his liver and East St. Louis and he couldn’t be sure whether or not he’d wet himself. A yellow sine wave rang in his ears so loud nit made his teeth itch and he was sure that if he touched his skin anywhere it would induce a rhythmic retching jag. Even in the face of all that, he found himself smiling at the realization that today represented the fresh breast of a new year- an undiscovered country- and also there was still one warm, half-full, flat redolent Hairy Eyeball on the nightstand. Yes-there is a God.

SvanteL (257) - SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2016
Mycket vacker djupt rödbrun färg med ett beiget medelstort skum som lägger sig snabbt. Stor maltig doft med inslag av riktigt mörka körsbär, lite apelsin, russin och kryddor. Söt, maltig smak med torkade frukter, pomerans, en liten kryddighet och på slutet växer en stor komplex beska fram och balanserar upp sötman. Munkänslan len och mjuk, lite trögflytande. En underbar strong ale dominerad av maltigheten i europeisk stil.

Beerandhockey8 (350) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - MAR 14, 2016
From 22oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a brown color, thick tan head. Nose is malty, light hop, boozy. Taste is medium bodied, bitter. Strong finish. Good ale

emusche (191) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours almost black with thick, sticky head, loads of clingy lacing. Aroma is toffee and caramel, slightly boozy, woody notes and hints of raisin. Taste is similar, pretty sweet from the toffee/caramel and a warming alcohol presence; chewy with a resiny mouthfeel. It’s very good.

RhetoricalAns (837) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
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.

craftbeersweden (559) - SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2016
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.

Dacrza (836) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2016
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...

matty (353) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2016
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!

Beachmaster (445) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 27, 2016
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.
