"Heres Lookin Atcha!"

Laying there, staring up at the ceiling, head pounding, last night was a dim recollection. How did he get home? Was he alone? Looking to the left and right, the answer was yes, maybe. His head was full of rag water, bitters, and the blue ruin.His teeth felt like hed been chewing aluminum and his breath smelled like a burning tractor tire. There was a wrenching knot somewhere between his liver and East St. Louis and he couldnt be sure whether or not hed wet himself. A yellow sine wave rang in his ears so loud nit made his teeth itch and he was sure that if he touched his skin anywhere it would induce a rhythmic retching jag. Even in the face of all that, he found himself smiling at the realization that today represented the fresh breast of a new year- an undiscovered country- and also there was still one warm, half-full, flat redolent Hairy Eyeball on the nightstand. Yes-there is a God.

Flaska frn SB. Provning med lsllskapet. Mrkorange, ltt rubinrd vtska med krmigt beiget skum. St doft av kanderat pple, kola, knck, konjak, ekfat, inlagda krsbr, bourbon och kandisocker. Tung, oljig kropp. Ekfatsstrv, men nd len. Ntig lnnsirap i smaken. Perfekt dessertl i barley wine-stuk. Mm, gott!

SvanteL (413) - SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2016
Mycket vacker djupt rdbrun frg med ett beiget medelstort skum som lgger sig snabbt. Stor maltig doft med inslag av riktigt mrka krsbr, lite apelsin, russin och kryddor. St, maltig smak med torkade frukter, pomerans, en liten kryddighet och p slutet vxer en stor komplex beska fram och balanserar upp stman. Munknslan len och mjuk, lite trgflytande. En underbar strong ale dominerad av maltigheten i europeisk stil.

emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours almost black with thick, sticky head, loads of clingy lacing. Aroma is toffee and caramel, slightly boozy, woody notes and hints of raisin. Taste is similar, pretty sweet from the toffee/caramel and a warming alcohol presence; chewy with a resiny mouthfeel. Its very good.

craftbeersweden (631) - SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2016
Clear, dark mahogny colored beer with a three finger high, creamy and fluffy head that leaves a lot of lacing.

Nose: Dried fruit, pear, sweet caramel malt, pine, brown sugar and honey.
Taste: A lot of malt! Chewy, pine, oak, caramel, grass and some grapefruit.
Mouthfeel: Full body. Very sweet and thick body. I think this will grow better with aging in my beercellar. A little bit to sweet right now! Medium carbonation. Bittersweet ending.

Dacrza (916) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2016
DATE TASTED: March 4, 2016... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... OCCASION: the first day of baseball practice--and for the first time in seven years, I am not there! To Bob, Butch, Kyle, Adam and Rob--this ones for you... APPEARANCE: dark ruby body that lets in little light but supports a thick, creamy off-white head that craters slightly and resembles a nitro stout...lacing is significantly hazing... AROMA: strong malts are front and center, with fresh dough, caramel and spices like soft pepper, raisin, and chocolate--not as dynamic as other Lagunitas offerings... PALATE: warm, thick and significant in its trip across the tongue; dry at the finish... TASTE: raisin, dough and prune make for a sweet, barley-forward experience akin to a barleywine... OVERALL:another BIG beer from Lagunitas that lacks the diverse profile of other Lagunitas offerings, but still brings high alcohol and powerful mouthfeel.... this could just as easily create a hangover as cure one... tough to find the hops here, but this is a beer to say goodbye to winter with...
