Wow, this beer hides it's alcohol well. Nice hopping to balance the superb malts. A session beer for the hard drinking types. :)

Poured into tulip. Pours dark copper with a reddish hue. Thin off white head reduces to an extremely thin lacing quickly. Aroma is solventy/ heavy alcohol with hints of dark fruits. Flavor is heavy on the alcohol to the point that you would think it's higher than 9.6%. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Under the booze theres lots of sweetness with a slight plum, fig and molasses aftertaste. Described as a euro strong ale but tastes a whole lot like a barleywine that's not ready yet. If you have this or buy this in 2014 do yourself a favor and throw it in the cellar for a year or two.

Blindfolded you'd call this an Old Ale, complete with buttery taste and the woody, musty wierdness. Hints of old cinnamon and suspicious fruit. Candy finish with cedar and butterscotch. Lovely woody, roast grain aroma.

Attractive dark red amber with a modest foam. So sweet with caramel, but then the bitter aftertaste emerges. This is one of the classic alcoholic malt depth charges that Lagunitas used to be known for. And it goes down nicely, like a wet dream of a malt liquor. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Liticker's Liquor in San Diego.
