3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark burgundy copper from the bottle with a decent off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts, and slight fruity esters. Taste follows suit with a bitter alcoholic back end. Good beer, but not lagunitas’ best.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep burgandy body and a nice medium sized light head. Smells of light citrus hops, caramel, brown sugar and a hint of spice. Taste is caramel and citrus hops. A bitter alcohol finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Lagunitas. It pours cloudy red-brown, with a thin off-white head. The nose is trifle, sweet fruit, leather and wood - all fairly mellow to be honest. The taste is trifle, wood, leather, brown sugar, spice and some lemon soap, with alcohol warmth in the finish. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tastes like malt and fig, some chocolate. Finishes with some alcohol and some citrusy hops. It could probably mesh a bit better. Still, it’s pretty good.

Rusty with nice cream chapeau....dark malt essences with candied fruits from nose to palate where hops add balance to the force. Some warmth at the end as flavors take on spicy dimension. Don’t know bout the eye, but it’ll def put a little hair on your chest.

aroma, some flora hoppy esters, opend well to the nose, nice amber hue good head form and retetion, front end bitter hops, but mild then the strong malty background takes over, overall, a winner, great beer, nice name.

A balanced American Strong ale. Not too hoppy, and at the same time not malty enough to put it over the top. Not my favorite Lagunitas beer but a very Ok.
