On tap at Sunset Grill: Clear yellow color with a small white head. Light burnt grain and cookie aroma, full bodied with a soft flat feel. Short ending that is slightly sweet.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2005 Decent color. Good use of hops. I definitely enjoyed the dry finish. How does this not have a stronger alcohol taste at 8% alcohol? Very good beer. Man, wha tI wouldnít give for a keg of this...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color with an off white head. Warm malt aroma with a hint of hops and alcohol. Near chewy and lightly oily. Sweet fruit and malt flavors dominate. Warming dry malt finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet, fruity aroma. Dark gold. Very fruity -- banana, cakey, vanilla, buttery, spicy, medium-light hopping and a little diacetyl. Low CO2. Medium heavy mouth with trailing alcohol burn. Quite a kick, but I abandoned this one before getting back on I-12. Nutty finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, light-yellow-orange. Rather crisp and moderately carbonated up front, thickens near the finish. Smooth and chewy malts. Light, yet noticeable, alcohol notes are warming. Not too hoppy, but it does seem to have a building, bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It is a better beer than the rating. Has some signs of doppelbock, it is strong, thick, malty, but it is has a quick to end bitterness that makes it very easy to drink. Reminds me of a good hell, only maltier and much more alcaholic. Unique.

This beer is actually 11.5%. 3 or 4 of them will get you hammered. Itís a good beer if youíre looking for a buzz, but not something I would buy to enjoy at home. When I go to my local bar, Iíll have a pint every now and then. You canít find it in bottles as itís a limited production. Itís got a dry taste, but the alcohol isnít that prevalent.

The beer is good, but it sure will knock you off your ass. Iíve been told by some bartenders that the eight percent alcohol content is underrated, and after a few, I understood why. I wish I could actually purchase this beer at a grochery store, because as of now it is only available in kegs.
When I drink it, I usually ask the bartender to fill my glass halfway so that I can slowly enjoy it while it is cold. It isnít exactly the beer that you throw back quickly.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I think this beer is made by thinning one part Anchor Foghorn with three parts water. What is left is a trace of the sweetness and little of the flavor. Blech.
