COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

The best beer ever, period. The perfect blend between overaly bitter and overly malty, best of both worlds. The label stands true, beware all you yellow fizzy beer drinkers!!

This is the appellation of kick ass beer. For connoisseurs, a zenithal paradise. For novices, however, a nadiral hell.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2006 Thought I would re-rate now due to my personal affinity for this brew. Once again, very deserving of the 5.0 rating I originally gave. A Hall of Fame brew that turned me on to the joys of all other beers being different than Miller or Anheuser Busch.

This is IT. What a beer. The intense hoppy bitterness of the initial taste hits like a hammer, while still being elegant and balanced; and the finish is beautiful and lasting. I can see why some people warn beginners away from it, though; its power could be overwhelming for the inexperienced.

One of my all-time favorites. Dark mahogany color. A strong beer with the perfect blend of sweet malt and hops. Flavor is very deliciously unique putting this beer in a category all its own.

This beer is awesome. Dark amber in color, hoppy like a mother. At first sip it bites you big time. Second sip your almost ready. Third sip your ready to do commercials for this beer. Calling it aggresive still dosent do it justice. This is my favorite beer. You are not ready!
