LIghtning Old Tempest

type: strong ale
origin: San Diego, CA
price: $7.99/22oz
abv: 9.0%
NSP: 7.3

I don't really know how to classify this, but it reminds me of a strong ale mixed with a dash of Coca Cola - what you wish barleywine would taste like.  That description may not sound appealing, but this really tastes wonderful.  The complex flavors perfectly complement the heaviness and sweetness; it's a big bastard at 9%, and a perfect beer for a hazy day.  I'm definitely cellaring this one.

Lightning rocks balls, but I'm still confused why they're in the backseat of the SD beer car?

I'll be back after Thanksgiving break, fresh full of drunkard stories from the land of Luma.  Until then, drink up.
