Pours a reddish amber with a bit of tan head. Aroma is a grat combination of malty hops and bits of chocolate and caramel. Smooth finish with a medium body. Definitely would pour this guy again.

rondphoto (4229) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 16, 2016
22 oz bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nice aroma of malt and citrus. Clear mahogany color, pock-marked beige head that stays at 2", bands of lace. Taste is dark malt, citrus, medium carbonation, a return of malt, then nuetral hops to finish, with a little malt returning at the very end. Balanced and complex. Highly recommended.

Pours a medium brown with a khaki head. Aromas of malt and some chocolate. Taste a lot more grapefruit and pine hops than you smell. Light to medium mouth feel with nice lacing in the glass. Nice beer with a pronounced hop finish.

coachd (649) - Missouri, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Rich malty aroma, some chocolate, like a strong brown ale. Barely see through brown color with a very small cream colored ring of foam. The taste is surprisingly mild for Lagunitas. Brown ale characteristics, some smoke in the aftertaste, creamy and very drinkable. By far the least hoppy beer I have had from this brewery. Good silky palate, substantial for the ABV. Overall, this is a good entry in a category that is usually not my cup of tea. I have to disagree with RB on this one, its a brown ale, not an ASA.

Bottle from Chi-town brewery. Pours dark copper. Aroma is caramel and toasted malts, faint cocoa, earthy and woody notes, and faint floral notes. Flavor is dry and malty up front with light caramel sweetness followed by some roasty and earthy hop bitterness. Medium body.

hawthorne00 (3664) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2016
Bottle. Clear brown with an inch of off white head that lasts pretty well. Aroma has toffee and some chocolate, lots of citrus flowers and grapefruit. Luscious texture with moderate carbonation. The richness of the malt doesnt overpower the hops but pulls them into a broader palate. Chocolate and toffee, citrus overtones, enough bitterness to keep it drinkable rather than have the sweetness hang around. A well-made beer that doesnt pretend to be for sipping delicately.
