22oz bomber from Central Market. Ah, the style that is American Strong. Lets go!! Pours a clear, dark brown body with a tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is big, malty, piney and caramel sweet. Note: Brad Davis in "Midnight Express" if fuckin crazy!!! Just saw the fight/tongue bite scene. Drugs in "The Turkey" are bad!!! OK, back to normal programming: Flavor mirrors the aroma--Malty, light/medium caramel sweetness, piney to floral hops and a moderate resinous bitter finish. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Another good value to product delivered transaction. PS "Oh Billy!!!!"

Served from a 22 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a medium amber with a full foamy white head. The aromas are a nicely hopped sweet malty nose. Some cinnamon and nutmeg too. Flavors are rich with sweet malts, cinnamon, juniper berries, mild hops. Nicely carbonated mouth. Solid offering for sure.

This beer pours a dark brown almost black with a very thin tan head. The aromas are musty, a little smokey and some vanilla. On the palate its a little dry up front giving way to some sweetness as it goes down. Its also quite sticky on the palate. I liked this one. Not a bad beer Cheers!

I think I just made a mistake. I ve had two beers earlier this evening and was going to have one more and hit the sack. Opened the bottle without reading the label and now Im obligated to 22 oz of some high alcohol beer before I can stop. Great roasted malt nose comes off the clear, deep brown pour. A light brown head dissipates quickly and leaves the lacing that warns of alcohol. first taste is a quick hop bite with the big malt character quickly behind. Dominant flavors are from the malt: roasted grain, ripe fruits, and a sort-of cherry/chocolate. There are just enough floral hop notes. Very nice beer. And there isnt a hint of the 7.8% ABV in the flavor. These guys do an impressive job with beer. I keep stumbling onto their beers thinking that, because of their moderate pricing, Im not going to like the product. And Im consistently surprised by the quality. And, here it is again.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2010
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, grapefruit, malt, pine, slight rye, light wood, slight cedar, marijuana, slight caramel, and some resin. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, slightly rocky, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. A tad cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Some small particles. Excellent lacing. Flavor is Lightly sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, resin, caramel malt, nuts, slight chocolate, and roasting. Medium body. Slick, then slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, pine, resin, and slight chocolate finish is medium bitter. 7.83%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Cybercat (5392) - Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2010
Strong aroma is quite hoppy, almost like an IPA, with woody and malty tones and a hint of citrus. It pours a lovely, slightly hazy mahogany with a decent light tan head. Flavor is hoppy and woody with a malty undertone and a dash of sour citrus. There is also a subtle alcohol bite. Texture is fairly smooth, edgy and tingly. Chalk up another win to Lagunitas!

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark red, frothy off white head. Malt, caramel, fruit, floral hops, citrus, and pine. Well balanced and fairly easy drinking. It doesnt stand out to much, but still enjoyable.

22 oz of what seems to be the new Rogue, is this a rebadge or Brown Shugga or a blend with Censored.....Man it seems the last half dozen beers from Launitas all smell/look/taste the same. This one is a clear deep slight copper brown with an average sized light beige foamy head, yawn. Aroma is sweet, shocking I know, toffee, caramel, burnt brown sugar, biscuit, floral, citrus. Body is average thickness with stingy carbonation and a quick sweet finish. Flavor is sweet and floral, like a combination of flower petals and a touch of sugar water, throw in a touch of malt and viola......WTF. Seriously though is this just Brown Shugga, or however the hell they spell it, rebadged??
