3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Reddish-brown with a thin layer of foam on top. Taste is malty and surprisingly (but not unpleasantly) sweet with hints of fruit. No taste of alcohol that I could pick up on. Nice lingering aftertaste. Quite good for the price point.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Perihelial Release - 9.1%. Poured from the bomber into a shaker glass. Dark brown with some ruby highlights and a tan head. Malty aroma with a lot of dark fruit and some alcohol. Flavor has some nice toasty malt notes with some molasses sweetness, and some more complex dark fruit notes along with a touch of smoke. Fairly smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. Not detecting the alcohol nearly as much as some other reviewers indicated. Typical Lagunitas deliciousness!

Tap at Pizza Luce. Red brown with a cream colored head and heavy lacing. Stong malt aroma, dry yeast, caramel and alcohol. Flavor has a light dry sweetness. Body is heavier with a creamy feel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber - don’t see any dating on the bottle.
Aroma - very sweet. Red licorice-ish...very candy-ish.
Appearance - dark copper red color. Very little head.
Taste - well, the taste follows the aroma spot on. Very sweet taste.
Palate - the sweetness does linger nicely....this is a very strong boozy beer.
Overall - Lagunitas makes another good beer, this one is just something I couldn’t drink 2 of back to back....

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.
