Pours a deep amber color, with a two finger off white head that had some staying power. Aromas of hops, sweet malts, and some more hops. Flavor isn’t as sweet as I was led to believe. You can taste the alcohol from the get go, what follows is a nice mellow caramel/brown sugar (I Guess) sweetness that finishes with a nice bitter hop.

Lilja (3161) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2016
Flaska från SB. Något år gammal. Smak och doft av karamell, smörkola, brunt socker, sirap, torkad frukt som plommon, russin samt övermogen frukt med smak av mango och papaya och honung. Kraftfull, rund och len, stor sötma, välbalanserad och smakrik, fin beska. Gott!

Vignale (3829) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2016
Flaska från SB. Ca 1 år gammal. Stor söt fruktig doft och smak. Toffee och karamell möter övermogen papaya, mango, persika och nektar. Kanske väl söt och lite mer humle hade väl inte skadat. Men den söta fruktigheten är riktigt fin. Mycket gott.

coachd (836) - Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2016
2015 version, aged just over 1 year. Aroma is toffee, slightly burnt caramel, butterscotch, brown sugar, dark fruit and booze. Very sweet but excellent. See through light amber color with a bright white cap of foam. The taste is sweet up front with a hop bite that follows directly afterward. The bitterness still shows through after a year, this thing must have been a hop bomb fresh. The aftertaste is oaky with a slight booze burn. The palate is great. It is unique because it has sharp carbonation but still coats the mouth. If you’re aging a bottle of this, wait longer than a year. It still had plenty of rough edges when I drunk it.

Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Bomber poured to a tulip. Clear copper with a decent off white head and nice lacing. Aroma is big and boozy. Toffee, caramel, malty, slight citrus, and pine resin. Flavor follows. Toffee and caramel in a big way. Grapefruit and pine are there, as well as some thick, doughy flavor. It’s a bit boozy and on the thicker side. Awesome beer.

3.7
rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle. Amber with small head. Rich boozy barleywine. Toffee and caramel. Light fruitiness. Nice balance. Not as hoppy as I expected from Lagunitas, but there’s good flavor here.
