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.

MMMMalty caramel aroma wafts above this rather dark brown ale. Very nice but quickly disappearing head. Rich, caramelly and a tinge of hops. Very tangy like a strong American brown with lots of toasted malts. I enjoy it a lot!

Dark brown pour with a thin foamy ring. Aroma of dark malts, roast, fruit. The flavor is malty with dark fruits, roast, caramel. A touch of floral hop dryness rounds out the finish. Hop presence is light but noticeable. Mostly a malty heavy ale.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2008
On tap at the Hedge House. Pours dark mahogany with a soft light tan head. Smokey body, almost placebos the mind into a beef jerky like grandeur, rich and hearty. The bitterness was strong enough to bring up the finish. Probably just a trick of the brain, but felt salty up front, but that could be due to previous jerky experiences. Solid beer, while not as full bodied as something like Orkney Skullsplitter, still along those lines with a stronger hop dose.

stchloe (745) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Well first its called LSD. Secondly has bitterness. Third a brown and a hefty ABV. It kind of is a cult classic beer.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2008
sampler @ brewery - now i’m not one to say no to liquid LSD, so gave this one a shot; clear, dark amber; maltiness is there, but not very strong; hops more obvious in the aromas; drinks smooth and on the bland side; best part is the name :)

Ungstrup (29168) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2008

raphael (873) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2008
At oaks bottom. Caramel, molasses, slight hop edge. darkest brown, tan head that hangs on. some fizz in the mouth but also the flat oily weight. strong hop flavors of citrus and pine, too strong for the brown sugar & roasted malt hints

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Draft at New Old Lompoc Brewery, Portland, OR. Small head that was mostly lasting with a decent amount of lacing, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a dark brown hue. Nose was malty, lightly roasty and smokey. Flavor was malty, lightly roasty, smokey, and hoppy. Smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Nicely balanced brew, very quaffable, quite tasty and worthy of a try.
