"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.

slightly hazy amber, foamy tight beige head. aroma of toffee, fruit, dark malts and cocoa. med+ mouthfeel drinks like a big brown ale. flavours of roast, red grape, bread, tangy orange, chocolate and mild spicy bitterness. quite tasty.

sweet malty caramel and fruity aroma maybe some citrusy and or piney hops evident too but way in second..very nice reddish dark brown clear liquid with filmy off white head some lacing..tastes like it smells sort of a fruity barleywine style maltiness with some tingly hop presence not bad at all..thick and slightly oily on the palate though not sticky with a slightly dry finish that lingers..overall a cross between a strong barleywine and a sweet brown ale with just enough hops good stuff and not expensive either

Bottle form McHughs. Pours tea reddish brown with off white head. Fairly clear in appearance. Caramel, earthy, nutty aroma. A lot of whiskey and barleywine aroma. Flavour is a caramel sticky malt, a mild oak whiskey finish. Fairly smooth and tasty.

12 oz bottle at home. Pours a deep amber/copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, toffee, some dark fruit, a slightly nutty and earthy character, decent enough.

For my 900th rating, I got a beer that I’ve heard of and had to import from Mammoth when I was skiing. Big, malty barleywine aroma from a beautiful copper/tan body with a thin off-white head. Sweet light and dark caramel and toffee flavors mix with a nice alcohol bite, both sides of which are so well balanced and keep things under control. There is some bitterness under this, but it seems hidden under the malt sweetness. The flavors swirl around like delicious candy and finally end on a lasting sweet note with some bitterness finally standing on it’s own. A very delicious and deviously strong ale. I’ll most likely be waking up with hairy eyeballs tomorrow.....

Pours red-amber with a small off white head. Aroma is molasses and heavy malted grains. Taste is syrupy malts with sweetness coming out more in the mid. Taste is nice, but not super complex.

Foxbush (1832) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2016
22 oz bottle from Greene’s in Columbia,SC. The ale poured a deep Amber color with a frothy beige head which slowly dissipated. Modest lacing. The rich malty aroma greets you. The taste is more complex with plum and roasted caramel malts. There is only mild hopiness. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. There is nice warming from the alcohol by the time you get halfway through the bottle. The finish is dry with dried fruits and toffee on the tongue.

Typical Lagunitas slightly different than anything else, with a nice caramel flavor and good malt, not too much hops. Enjoy!
