    Brown brew with a red heart deep inside it. Little head. Big malty nose. Rich bready flavor with over ripe plums. Abv is non existent. Full creamy body. Outstanding beer.

    Poured an indigo color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, smoke, faint citrus, vanilla beans, and light alcohol. Taste of sweet caramel malts, dried fruits, nuts, vanilla, and light alcohol as well in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel.

    Many thanks to JohnC for sending this one. A dark brown appearance with a reddish hue. The aroma is chocolatey with some candi sugar, perfume, and raisins. A chocolate, caramel, fig, mild citrus, and cookie dough flavor. A bit of alcohol sting in the aftertaste with a slightly doughy mouthfeel. This is very similar to an Arrogant Bastard with a more evident alcohol presence of course. Overall this is some good stuff.

    Dark amber color. Medium sized beige foamy head. Aroma is fruity malt, touch of chocolate and floral hops. A beer to celebrate the 3000 batch out of the Lagunitas brew kettle. A medium to full bodied American Strong Ale/Eisbock?? Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and floral. WOW. BIG malts, BIG hops and really well balanced. No trace of the 11.3% alcohol either. Very smooth tasting, nearly silky. Nice round soft carbonation. This stuff is really amazing right now. I wonder what it will be like in a year or two? Another amazing beer from Lagunitas. Keep it up guys. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    huge thanks to my friend herbjjones for tipping me off as to where to find this beauty in SoCal. Great looking pour: garnet with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet, doughy... The flavor is great. No hint of the 11.3% ABV. Smooth as silk on the tongue, fruity flavor that is well balanced. Lots of great malts. Truly an excellent beer.
