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

I generally don't like red ales. This is an exception, by far, for me.
Beautiful pour from the bottle. Ruby mahogany color, slow moving carbonation, a little hazy. Creamy head that dissipates to a couple of millimeters slowly, but that lace will stay there forever.
The nose is one of the most inviting I've encountered in a while. Malty and bread, creamy yet crisp and herbal as well. Plum and raisin, a whole lot. Sweet burnt malt and alcohol. Give me some!
Taste is sweet and fruity at the beginning, like toasted raisin bread and malty granola. The hops really only kick in at the finish, as does the alcohol, but both combine for a bitter and clean aftertaste.
Good, real good.
