Pours a dark tawny brown, burnt auburn color with a thick creamy looking one finger off white colored head. Sticky lacing down the glass. Dark fruits, prunes, figs, burnt sugar, and sweet caramel notes are the first aromas noticed.
Big and deep malty profile. Sweet caramel malt flavors. Thick, creamy, and robust. Malt takes the lead, but it has a surprisingly nice balance. Spicy hops shock the taste buds with a bitterness that lasts into the finish, but hangs around as a supporting cast member. Little bubbly carbonation is spritzy on the tip of the tongue. An interesting offering from Lagunitas. Definitely enjoyable, but not one I'd go after every day. Abv is up there, but not very apparent in the tastes, so watch out!
