12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another offering from Lagunitas that I have yet to try. Excited to finally be doing so; pick up this bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours about two fingers of khaki colored fluffy head on top of a clear dark coppery orange colored body. Some sediment floating around. Nice thin streaked rings of lacing on the glass.

S - Smell is of straight-forward malts and little else. Definitely a malt showcase here, folks. Has almost a coppery metallic smell to it in the back end, also.

T - Well built body; nicely carbonated. Again, a straight up malt showcase with just a touch of leafty hop bitterness added to the mix. Bready, earthy, caramelized malts, apparent tree nuts, faint honey, some sweetness, & some coppery metallic taste on the finish.

M - Feel is semi-sweet, malty, with a bit of hop resins and some metallic qualities to it.

Overall, definitely not what I expected from Lagunitas. In this case, I was counting on their usual hop assault, but what we have instead is mostly a malt bomb. Definitely a nice addition to the Lagunitas portfolio, but this isn't a beer I would go out of my way to have again. I'll stick to the Lagunitas hop bombs, thank you.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark amber hue with a two finger head that doesn't hang around long and leaves a subtle rim of lacing,the smell is toffee,caramel,marzipan and butterscotch basically it's all about the malts,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with above moderate carbonation and starts off quite sweet with butterscotch and toffee first to hit you followed by a herbal slightly fruity hoppy bitterness and overall it's alright without being great and glad I've tried it but wouldn't rush out again for it cheers.
