COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
John’s Locker Stock Series - Originally brewed at the Issaquah location
A strong but well-balanced winter warmer, this ale has extreme complexity made for a holiday feast. The addition of raisins and molasses in the brewing process produces unusual spiced rum like flavors to go along with the well-balanced malt (two row, brown, crystal 40) and hops (bittering Palisades, aroma Centennial).

Dark brown color. Unexpected fruity aroma. Full malty flavor, fruity and aromatic hop, round, sweet caramel, light liquorice, well blended. Excellent.

(draft) Cloudy brown body topped be a beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit/pine, caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, pine, grapefruit, some caramel. Alcohol evident but not overpowering. Intensely bitter. Medium-full body, quite resiny.

Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. A little weird. Pours clear and brown with a sturdy tan head. Aroma gives off plenty of sweet malts and some pine hops. In the flavor is where things got a little strange. Sweet, with syrup and caramel, and boozy, and then there was some hop bitterness hanging around the outskirts, staring in unsettlingly. Also some roastiness - who invited him? Alcohol is not hidden, stumbling around like a drunk acquaintance. (Awkward.) Lacked cohesiveness. Had some interesting elements, but overall everything just didn’t come together.

Tmoney99 (10800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Draft at Barley’s Tap in Chattanooga, TN under JLS #17. Poured dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate complex toasted malt, tart citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

JorisPPattyn (7970) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2006
Draught, brewed at Issaquah Chestnut colour with yellow, fine head. Sweet nose, molasses indeed, syrupy. Maybe some grapes. Quite hoppy, bitter taste, and not at all sweet despite the backing and adjuncts. In fact, the finish is even harsh metallic without pine. Retronasal some cake. Dry, despite, etc., etc. Full bodied. The balance is not quite there. Lots of differences between nose & taste.

after4ever (6166) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2010
draft at bottleworks. crystal, but as dark an amber as is imaginable. dense, creamy, but very short lived tan head that falls away to a slim rim, leaving plenty of lacing. sharp, boozy, somewhat musty nose. creamy medium body with plenty of lively carb. rich black toast, earth, and fresh cut wood on the mid palate. long earthy resinous finish that combines with the vodka twang to make for a pretty abrasive finish. the middle of this beer is ok, but the beginning and end are trouble.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Dark reddish brown pour with no head. The aroma is very strongly of dark fruit, sugar, brown sugar, basic rum like notes. The flavor is also strongly alcoholic with lots of fermented ripe fruits, raisins, some bittering hops, and more strong vinous fruit. Body is full, lots of booze, pretty damn strong. Not really that interesting, but strong if thats what you are down with.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Draught at Bittercreek Alehouse in Boise, ID
Murky chestnut color, off-white tanish head with very thick and attractive lacing. The nose is very malty with dark raisin and fig notes. Sweet pinot grapes, strawberry and other fruity hop and alcohol notes. The flavor is intense at first, almost like you need a warmup beer before this. Light acidity, moderate sweetness and bitterness. Hot alcohol in the flavor. Rich body and full mouthfeel, the finish is sweet but balanced. Very nice and full beer. A bit brash and green, but it adds to the character.

egajdzis (5364) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Poured a reddish amber color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of chamomile, smoke, roasted malt, and caramel. Taste of more roast, caramel malts, tropical fruits, cloying sweet molassas, and chewy raisins (not enjoyable) and a bitter, grapefruit, hop finish.
