A- Comes out nicely with a very dark copper/maroon color and a thin head that dissipates fairly quickly. Bubbles come up from the bottom every once in a while. Not much lacing to speak of.
S- Very pleasant smell. Dark candied fruits like cherry and plum and I got a slight whiff of something nutty. You can tell this is gonna be a malty brew.
T/M- What???!? What the hell am I drinking. I am caught way off guard with this one. It is like no other beer I have drank before. I would say though that Strong Ale is the best choice for putting a style on this beer but this definitely has some unique flavors. It has the nose in it but what is most dominating is what appears to be the sweetness. There is a weird tart ripe grape flavor in it. It is really hard to pin point but there is something with this brew I have never experienced and I love it. Mouthfeel is good, goes down smooth, no bite. No alcohol taste going on.
D- Fairly high ABV at over 8.8% but is oddly easy to drink. I could put a few of these 12oz bottles down without too much hesitation. Lagunitas surprises me yet again with some amazing brew.
