22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark red, frothy off white head. Malt, caramel, fruit, floral hops, citrus, and pine. Well balanced and fairly easy drinking. It doesnít stand out to much, but still enjoyable.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2010
Bomber. Poured clear coppery-brown with a dense cap of beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel and iced tea sweetness with a bright bouquet of darker fruit and grapefruit around.. hoppy overall, but with the right malt bill to back it up. The flavor was hot and heavy with alcohol and the aforementioned bitterness laced throughout.. biscuit, caramel, and molasses sweetness supported.. grainy on the finish with earth and spicy hop character. Medium-bodied with quite a bit of carbonation on the finish.. spicy and too hot at times.. overall a decent drinker, but rough around the edges.

DalzAle (2011) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 3, 2010
Bottle. Dark clear amber pour, nice fruity, sweet malty nose and plenty of carbonation. Flavor is slightly sweet malts, oaky and finished dry and a litter bitter. Decent for what it is and very well priced at under $5 a bomber

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2010
Pour is clear ruddy brownish amber (cola-like) with a big bubbled but soapy light brown head...smell is strongly hoppy, to say the least...citrus notes of grapefruit are the dominant aroma, some hints of resin too...then a nice toasty sweet malty character of caramel and day old crusty dark rye breads...the taste is pretty close to exactly how it smells...a strong quick bitterness up front with a citric grassy flavor quickly giving way to some caramel sweetness....fading back into a lingerlingly bitter finish...a tad herbal and medicinal...fantastically barely above average...

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2010
22oz bomber from Central Market. Ah, the style that is American Strong. Letís go!! Pours a clear, dark brown body with a tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is big, malty, piney and caramel sweet. Note: Brad Davis in "Midnight Express" if fuckiní crazy!!! Just saw the fight/tongue bite scene. Drugs in "The Turkey" are bad!!! OK, back to normal programming: Flavor mirrors the aroma--Malty, light/medium caramel sweetness, piney to floral hops and a moderate resinous bitter finish. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Another good value to product delivered transaction. PS "Oh Billy!!!!"

Served from a 22 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a medium amber with a full foamy white head. The aromas are a nicely hopped sweet malty nose. Some cinnamon and nutmeg too. Flavors are rich with sweet malts, cinnamon, juniper berries, mild hops. Nicely carbonated mouth. Solid offering for sure.

dyetube (1336) - McKinney, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2010
This beer pours a dark brown almost black with a very thin tan head. The aromas are musty, a little smokey and some vanilla. On the palate itís a little dry up front giving way to some sweetness as it goes down. Itís also quite sticky on the palate. I liked this one. Not a bad beer Cheers!

I think I just made a mistake. I ve had two beers earlier this evening and was going to have one more and hit the sack. Opened the bottle without reading the label and now Iím obligated to 22 oz of some high alcohol beer before I can stop. Great roasted malt nose comes off the clear, deep brown pour. A light brown head dissipates quickly and leaves the lacing that warns of alcohol. first taste is a quick hop bite with the big malt character quickly behind. Dominant flavors are from the malt: roasted grain, ripe fruits, and a sort-of cherry/chocolate. There are just enough floral hop notes. Very nice beer. And there isnít a hint of the 7.8% ABV in the flavor. These guys do an impressive job with beer. I keep stumbling onto their beers thinking that, because of their moderate pricing, Iím not going to like the product. And Iím consistently surprised by the quality. And, here it is again.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2010
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, grapefruit, malt, pine, slight rye, light wood, slight cedar, marijuana, slight caramel, and some resin. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, slightly rocky, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. A tad cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Some small particles. Excellent lacing. Flavor is Lightly sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, resin, caramel malt, nuts, slight chocolate, and roasting. Medium body. Slick, then slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, pine, resin, and slight chocolate finish is medium bitter. 7.83%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Cybercat (4085) - Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2010
Strong aroma is quite hoppy, almost like an IPA, with woody and malty tones and a hint of citrus. It pours a lovely, slightly hazy mahogany with a decent light tan head. Flavor is hoppy and woody with a malty undertone and a dash of sour citrus. There is also a subtle alcohol bite. Texture is fairly smooth, edgy and tingly. Chalk up another win to Lagunitas!
