Bottle. Poured a red-brown with a creamy off-white head that settled to a ring and left good lace. Aroma and flavor found caramel malts, nut, and light pine. Medium body, light bitterness, and a malt aftertaste.

jbrana (351) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Hoppy on the front end with flavors of citrus and pine and a slightly metally note. The hops are well balanced with roasty, rich, malt flavors with hints of caramel and coffee.

rollinsr (335) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUL 29, 2013
Pours clear and brown with some frothy tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with strong prune and raisin notes. Taste is incredibly sweet and smooth with again a plethora of prunes. I also get some slight hops but they are completely overshadowed by the sweet character of this beer. Lagunitas has yet to disappoint.

freeofthoughts (633) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Pours nice deep brown with cream colored head. Lagunitas aroma of hops and yeast. Nice chocolatey smooth grain with a nice hearty nature. Finished drying with an earthy flower lagunitas hop flavor, that familiar nature that runs through all theirs. Very drinkable goes down to easy cold. Very solid Brown ale.

sefbeer (9) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2013 does not count
caramel, coffee, roasty, resin, dough, brown, hazy, frothy, tan foam, heavy cloying sweetness, medium bitterness, medium sourness, full body, creamy, soft carbonation, bitter, long finish, very flavorful beer, lots of stuff going on, a little hoppy for me personally, I got sucked in by the "Malty" on the label, but I am sure that if you enjoy a piney more bitter taste you will enjoy this.
