A: Decent head, about 1 finger, light reddish brown amber opaque color
N: Nose has lots of sweet brown sugar with slight hops and dark malt and some raisin like qualities
T: Taste starts with dark malts and raisin with brown sugar, more sweet red malts shine through, a slight molasses and toasty flavors as well as biscuit, a slight alcohol tinges the tongue, lots of sweet malty layers with thick brown sugar
M: It has a nice thick mouth feel with some creaminess
T: The finish has the sweet dark rich malts with brown sugar and some bitter hops, the bitterness shines through late on the finish, the sweet stays late on the back of the tongue as well
Final thoughts: Lots more biscuit the more I drink, a little too sweet but a nice heavy red ale, closer to a non-sour/tangy/fruity barleywine or heavy old ale, a great change for Lagunitas from the usual hop bomb

A- Dark rich copper in color. Slightly hazy. Creamy two finger off white head leaves moderate lacing.
S- Sour bready malt and yeast. Bitter dank hops behind that.
T- Huge malt and hop flavors melt together with a bitter and sour feel. There's alot going on and plenty of flavor to go around. The aftertaste is a muted version of the beginning. Slightly warming in the end.
M- Med to heavy bodied. Malty but this fades strangely to a more smooth feel towards the end.
O- Plenty of flavor, wonderful look and a decent feel. I don't feel I'm up to rate this brew fairly because its not in my wheelhouse. I'm not a fan of this style, although I can see how some may like it. Too much sour, malty mess. However it does improve with temperature. This one may need to be served a little warmer. Lagunitas consistently puts out brews that inspire me. Unfortunately this one is not one of my favorites. Such is life.
Edit- with no apparent date on the bottle and after reading other reviews, I think this must be a older beer. A complete break down on the hop flavor I experienced leads me to feel this way. I think I need to give this one another go to be sure.
