COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Portland Classic! This strong ale has a deep mahogany color and is crafted with seven different specialty malts. A touch of smoked malt gives it a complex aroma and incredible flavor. LSD is also generously hopped with six hop varieties to help create an awesome beer.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is toasty with a bit of caramel in there, and some slight spice elements popping through. Taste is slightly sweet, yet has some roasting to it. Surprisingly pleasant for me.

Brentv (304) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pint from draft on nitro at the 5th Quadrant in Portland. A beautiful dark brown pour. Aroma is pleasant, malty and sweet. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Flavors are dark and chocolate and caramel, but not a lot of any of it. It’s very smooth, neither sweet nor bitter. Very balanced and smooth. I liked it well enough on last visit that I ordered it again this time.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Sampled as ’Lompoc Special Draft’ Deep dark brown coloured body with a touch of violet showing through at the bottom when held up to a light and a thin, one centimetre tall brown head. Aroma of soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked peat, malt, raisins, earth and a bunch of nuts - very nice. Medium-bodied; Smokey flavour at first is strong and very flavourful with a lot of malt, earthiness, nuts, raisins, pit fruits and even some rye and specialty grain flavour there as well. Aftertaste shows some good sweetness, a hit of alcohol and a little earthy flavour that does well. Overall, a nice beer with a good flavour profile, nice complexity and a relatively smooth finish with some good sugars. Great to sample and a good one to bring back to wherever you live - assuming you aren’t from the area. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$4.15 sampled at home in Washington on 31-August-2013.

Bomber. Sold as Lompoc Special Draft. Dark fruit, spice, oranges and caramel. Well balanced. Finish is sweet with a hint of roasted malts. Was hard to find any hoppy bitterness in this brew.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2013
Draught at The New Old Lompoc 5th Quadrant. From notes. More malt body and flavor than most of the other beers in this session. Good balance. Moderate roast coffee flavor on the finish, which grows in intensity. Now we’re talking.
