New Old Lompoc Brewery - LSD (Lompoc Strong Draft) on tap at a local watering hole, pint glass.

Look - Pours a thin dark brown black with reddish hue and minimal/negligible head. Chunky lacing.

Smell - Sweet and roasted malt. Vanilla, malt chocolate, dates and maybe even prunes. Aroma is hard to gather in the pint glass but it's obvious that it is quite complex.

Taste - Slightly creamy with carbonation, sweet chocolate, some roasted coffee and malt, along with deep dark fruit. Some hops but being a hop-head this is a barely noticeable aspect to me.

Mouthfeel - Sticky and medium-bodied. No booziness present. Quite drinkable for the style (if you can fit it into a style). Slight hop bitter and toasted sticky malts.

Overall - The most interesting brew categorized into this style I have had and overall one of the most interesting brews I have had overall. It is almost like a hazelnutty dessert beer. Definitely recommend for those looking to try something different.

Poured from a bomber into a true pint, the beer is a dark, vibrant, ruby-tinged dark mahogany coloring with a filmy, slim, light tan colored head. Aromas of milk chocolate, fig, cream/milk, and roasted highlights. Very rich and smooth nose. Flavors of roasted coffee and mocha initially, with a bitter hops undertone and a rich, tangy, smoked caramel highlight. Very balanced, with a subtle warmth that builds as you drink. Creamy hazelnut and mocha aftertaste, with a slight bitterness. Solid brew. Bitter, slightly cloying linger to the finish. Very easy to drink.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a one finger light tan head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, nuts and a hint of dark dried fruit. Flavor is toasted malt, hint of chocolate and smoke and dark dried fruit, ending a bit abruptly to a long lasting charred malt and hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Leans towards being a hoppy brown ale. The flavors are pleasant, but something is missing in the finish, most likely a bit more malt support for the lightly smokey toastiness. Interesting and different, but needs some more intensity.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Two finger mocha head, fluffy lacing and large bubbles. Decent retention. Dark brown, Coca-Cola color.

S- Chocolate and roast malts. Cocoa nibs, deep rich chocolate notes. Vanilla notes as well.

T- Boozy, weird hoppiness and sweet malts. Bitter, piney hops. Very strange beer.

M- Thick, sharp and rolls on the back of the tongue.

O- Odd beer, the taste is peculiar. It is like a nut brown and an IPA mixed together.

Thanks to VoodooImpStout for sharing this one at my tasting.

Pours a clear reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of smoked campfire, and herbal hops. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of smoke and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some interesting aromas and flavors.
