Dark brown with red tint and off white to tan head. Aroma is sweet and grassy. Taste is sweet. Caramel and vanilla malt. Nice. To sweet to drink a lot, but still enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours brown with red highlights. Aroma of brown sugar, dark malts, and fruit. Heavy malt flavor, but well balanced with flowery bitterness. Finishes slightly sweet. This has some Belgian characteristics. Not overly complex. Good, but not the best offering I’ve had from Lagunitas.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great deep color, good malt profile, booziness not hidden at all. Malts make it fairly palatable, though. Very warming. Not my favorite from them, but definitely worth trying at least once.

Poured from 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Clear brown with reddish hue and off-white head. Caramel malt, light toffee and roast malt, subtle dark fruit. Fairly decent, but not overly complex. Blend is just okay.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Perihelial Release (I’m not tooo late since perihelion was 3 Jan) with an ABV of 9.1%. Dark amber with reddish tint, large spongy beige head, faint vanilla like aroma, caramel-burnt malt taste, medium carbonation, smooth medium finish with a burnt aftertaste. Quite smooth to drink and a loveble eyeball indeed!

Taste is sweet....caramel malt, berry...
Alcohol is wondrously hidden, with a slight warming nature......slightly woody....
Incredibly smooth, and very tasty.
