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.

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.

raphael (938) - 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 (4388) - 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.

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!

BillKismet (3412) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
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.

Oakes (13132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2007
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.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Porter-inspired dry, smokey, bitter chocolate malt base with a pronounced, stale hoppy finish. Dry plums also.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Pint. and a nitro smaple Draft at the Hedge House, Portland. Medium brown color, hazy, thin off-white head and great lacing throughout the pint. Piney hop nose from arms distance. Some alcohol evident at close range, smelling like a strong Barleywine, with sweet malts even present in the nose as caramel and fresh bread. Big bodied and sweet at first sip. Some peaty/raison notes in the middle and finishes clean and hoppy. A bit fiery at first few swallows but not as evident about halfway through the pint. Rather good!!!

cathcacr (642) - Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2009 On draft from the Oaks Bottom Public House in SE Portland (Sellwood dist.). LSD, as it was called there. Very ESBy but with a considerably stronger/more intense flavor profile than usual for the style. Quite sweet.
On re-rate from the bottle: Smoked elements very prominent. This almost presents as an old ale.
