22 ounce bomber poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a dark copper color with a half finger head and very nice lacing.

S: Sweet malts, hops, sugar, and a touch of alcohol. Very inviting.

T: Nutty, earthy, roasted malts, some hops, and a little alcohol. Not as complex as the Bastards, my favorite Strong Ales, but pretty good.

M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. I wish it was a little heavier.

O: This is a pretty good Strong Ale, but is lacking in places. It's tasty, easy to drink, and hides the alcohol well. I'm glad I tried it.

22 oz. bottle, no date listed on it.

A - Color is a nice reddish copper color. Looks very similar to an IPA.

S - The nose has malts and hops to offer, but little more. It is pretty generic smelling. There is maybe a slight hint of booze smell.

T - It has a nice nutty flavor to it up front. Definitely some malt.

M - The mouth feels nice. The malt and hop presence sticks around. Definitely has some nice flavors to it.

Overall, a good beer, with the 7.2% alcohol masked pretty nicely. It isn't perfect, but it is pretty fine.

Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot ---4/5.

Poured from a 22oz bomber in a duvel glass

A- pours reddish brown color, Ruby hues to the light and sides... 1 finger of off white head... diminishes to a thin slurry over the beer, beautiful lacing to the glass

S- sweet candied sugar, slight raisins and figgy fruit. Earthy hops... screams American strong ale...

T- burnt brown sugar.. caramel malts, caramelized raisins.. earthy hop balance

M- sweet like candy, medium bodied.. almost slick and oily in the back... good balance of hop... spicey prickly carbonation. Smooth and buttery

O- this reminds of brown sugga... not as sugary and delicious of it bit maybe the base of the actual ale... this is delicious as it is and a fine example of American strong ale... I know nothing of this brewery but I"m liking them beer by beer....
