3D Labeled bottle LagunitasFan brought to our holiday shindig tasting. Pours brownish wiht a tan ring. Nose is rich with cereal and malt and quite nicely smooth. Taste is rich and sweet and mellow and quite malty, totally a cool beer with a nice warming tobacco quality. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - DEC 21, 2008

Bottle... Very dark, murky, prune juice-colored lager with a small, creamy, tan head. Pulled deeply from my glass, the aroma lends vinous, earthy, fruity notes of dried plum, dark raisins, fig, cola, wood, tawny port and rawhide – that is a nose-full. Full-bodied with a smooth, velvety mouthfeel and tender carbonation. Sweet, meaty, vinous flavors of dried plum and sherry balanced by ethanol and hop bitterness alongside a whisper of chocolate and delicate acidity. Lengthy, dried plum finish. axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Pours an opague, dark brown body with a somewhat thick oily consistancy and a small beige head with some nice lacing. The aroma is semi sweet chocolate, molasses, and nuts with some banana bread and vanilla tones. The flavor is a lot like the aroma with more dark fruit tones coming through and a mild alcohol finish. I really didnt find the alcohol to be as overbearing as some. A very tasty beer. adrian910ss (2575) - Doylestown, PA, USA - DEC 10, 2008
13 oz corked bottle came with 3D glasses. Pours a dark cola with a medium beige head. Aroma of maple syrup, dark fruit and sweet malt. Taste of maple syrup, prunes, plums, dark sugar and sweet malt. kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2008
13oz corked green bottle, purchased at IH Media. Pours deep brown, capped with a moderate sized tan head that fades to a thin cover of small bubbles. Really nice aroma of vanilla bean ice cream, cocoa, molasses, banana and dark fruit. Flavor is big on cocoa, with smoke, toffee, dark fruit, and some alcohol. Syrupy mouthfeel with little carbonation; fairly easy to drink. Another winner from Iron Hill. BrianK (200) - Livingston, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Great triplebock. Well attenuated for 13 percent abv. Easy drinker with a nice lingering finish. Iron Hill has really been impressing me nowadays.
