Thanks to MagicTacoSinus for sharing this. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a clear burgundy with 1/2 finger of straw-colored head. Head quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Very slight sticky lacing.
S: Caramel, red ale malt aromas, cherry cough syrup, light cinnamon and plenty of all spice, a syrupy malt sweetness, prunes, and a hint of brown sugar.
T/M: Thick and syrupy, yet still medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Red ale and amber malt flavors, a slight herbaceous note, medicinal cherry cough syrup, the typical Lagunitas hop bite, caramel, and an earthy finish with lots of alcohol heat.
O: Just okay. This beer is huge and not screwing around, but it's just a little too medicinal and syrupy for what it is, probably as a consequence of its ABV. I probably will not revisit this one.
