3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Well first its called LSD. Secondly has bitterness. Third a brown and a hefty ABV. It kind of is a cult classic beer.

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 :)

Draft. A dark deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as a light touch of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and malt, leading to a dry bitter finish.

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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
AKA the LSD--"You don’t have to be a hippie to love LSD" is the slogan of Lompoc’s Strong Draft (LSD). This all-year beer has the kick of a winter beer. With a deep chestnut body and a nice fluffy off-white head and great lacing, this beer possesses a big malty nose. Balanced out by a perfect amount of bittering hops. This one is chocolaty with hints of dark fruits and mild grapefruits. A bit boozy in the finish. All around quite good!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2010 Deep amber/mahogany with decent malty nose, though not malt ball like. Hopping in periphery does not color the flavor or aroma, but contributes balance. Re-rated 2/20/10. Akin to a Scottish Wee Heavy with the lighltly smoked amber malt body. Touches of candi and crystal malt.

Dark brown colour. Big head. Chocolatey, slightly plummy, toasty, grapefruity aroma. Toasty character with light citrus accents. With its blend of subtle roastiness and overt hoppiness, it reminds me a lot of Black Toque, but with more grapefruit and an extra splash of booze.

Porter-inspired dry, smokey, bitter chocolate malt base with a pronounced, stale hoppy finish. Dry plums also.
