Pours a very hazy dark copper color with a thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both excellent. Sweet aroma. Brown sugar, hint of brandy, Belgian yeast. It is pleasant. Taste is very smooth. Brown sugar, slight brandy, maybe some caramel and a little bit of bitterness. Aftertaste is a little too bitter. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Good beer but may be too sweet to drink much of it.

Pours copper. Smell is hops. Not much else. Taste is hops, oranges up front. Caramel in behind. Balances nicely as it warms.

5/17/18: $1.66 12 oz bottle from Binny's Niles, poured into a snifter. Generous tan thin head, copper color, generous carbonation. Wine and cinnamon sweet aroma. Aptly named sweet taste, malt, wine, rum. Thin texture, carbonation holds, smooth drinking. Overall good offering.

Pours a pleasing maple brown. Not much of an aroma surprisingly. Nothing really to decipher to the nose. Tastes of red wine and hops. You could never tell that this is a 10% beer. Goes down almost like a lager.

= A good offering from Lagunitas. The aroma leaves a lot to be desired but the mouthfeel and taste make up for it.
