Considering the price, a very fine beer. It's an excellent example of a drinkable beer with a lot of great character. 12 oz. bottle poured into a 16 oz beer mug.
A: Pours a nice rich reddish brown in the mug with a slight head, rapidly finishing lacing and no trace after 60 seconds.
S: Smell was nice, with hints of anise, slight citrus hops and malt caramels.
T: Taste was well balanced. Alcohol esters completely masked with a nice soft hops touch. Smells fulfilled with yummy caramel notes and citrus on the finish.
M: Medium bodied as above. Great subdued character.Not crazy rich, but not too thin, either. Good medium bodied taste.
D: Very drinkable. Not too high in alcohol content, so a great drinker if you're looking for a decent six pack.

22oz into a tulip. Pours a deep mahogany w/ a frothy eggshell head, nice sticky lacing.
Aroma is big toffee and caramel, brown sugar, molasses. Smells sugary and sweet, some floral hops do their thing in the background.
Taste is rich and malty, lots of residual sugars here. Almost a barleywine, also kind of a winter warmer. But there's bitterness here too, and everything seems to work pretty well together. Just a nice sipping beer for a cold rainy night.
Mouthfeel is smooth and slick, coating. Medium body.
Overall a solid if unremarkable strong ale from Lagunitas. Enjoyable.

A great darker, but not too dark ale, with a very clean taste, and notes of chocolate and cloves in the aftertaste. Fresh, but with some profound depth to the mid-taste, this beer is clearly crafted to be enjoyed by beer connoisseur. Would drink this anytime!
