served in a goblet from draft. definitely lagunitas with the intense aroma, thick mouthfeel and good lasting roasty taste. not dry or sweet, good new age style interpretation

Going to rate this better than average, but with the caveat that I didn't care for it. There is a hop bitterness that cuts through the sweetness that I am not able to stand.

Beautiful amber.Very thick white head. Hoppy smell, sweet and spicy. Taste is sweet with hops and malt balanced very well. Strong: 9.9%abv. It is a very good beer from a mix n match sampler.
