Pours dark black with lots of tan head that leaves lots of lacing.

Nose has lots of hops, citrus, green grass.

Taste follows nose. Very smooth.

This reminds me a lot of Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale.

Great beer!

Yes this is a great beer. Definitely comparable to the SSRA from Stone.....and perhaps a bit easier drinking.....touch more hops and less abv. The color is nearly opaque with think ecru head that is lacing nicely. The scent carries citrusy like hop. The taste is evenly balanced with a mouthfeel that is fuller in body with subtle carbonation. Great beer....nice job Lagunitas.

Not one to "Fear the Dark" I picked this up on a whim. After a bit of chilling to about 50 degrees F, I poured a nice pint which showed a brownish red, not black but not translucent either. One inch head lingered for quite a while and left heavy lacing. Aroma is sweet, malty, and nutty with a bit of funk. Taste is similar but lacking funk, the sweetness is well balanced with a bit of bitters and maltiness, some fruit qualities, although a coffee aftertaste presents. Mouth feel starts creamy but quickly changes to a slight carbonated bite.
