Pretty damn good. Great bold taste. Nice malt/ citrus nose. Palate lingers with a wonderful bitter finish. Must try. I’m sad that Bear Republic is pulling out of the great state of Michigan. Lucky for us we have many great beers to drown our sorrows in. Maybe we’ll see you again Bear......

A very good beer with enough hops and malts to enjoy both worlds. Dark amber with a red tint and medium cream colored head. Aroma is hops and brown sugar. Hoppy,sweet and just good beer.

Pours dark brown with a one finger off white head. Aroma is all citrus and hops. Taste is kind of like a Scottish Ale on steroids. It’s a dark ale with a ton of hop taste. Bitter on the back end. Not bad.

I like this one. The aroma is mostly hops, which made me leery to try it, not being a fan of happy beer. But the taste is nicely balanced between hops and malt. You get the hop flavor at the front, but it smooths out at the finish. Each sip intensifies this. Slightly stronger than I prefer but I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Bottle. Smells wonderful, but hard to place aroma. Sweet and full. Ale is murky, dark amber in the glass, with almost no head. Taste follows the aroma, with something sweet at the end. Feels heavy and full. Ends up just a little more bitter than I’d like.

Bottle - dark amber with light beige head. Aroma of hops, roast malts, dark fruits, sweet malts, caramel, coffee. Same for the taste. Lovely mouthfeel, medium bodied, well balanced. Excellent.

355ml bottle from Utobeer. Pours mahogany brown with some resinous, rosy hops and a tickling citrus bitterness on the finish. Nice.

Clear amber pour with a thin off white soapy head and lots of sticky lacing ... aroma of caramel malts, tea and earthy hops with lightly toasted malts and faded citrusy hops .... taste is of earthy and tea light hops, with some bitter citrusy hops, caramel malts, toasted malts and simple .... has a nice lingering dry malty and bitter bite to the finish

This is one of my all time favorite beers! If your a fan of Stone's Arrogant Bastard I would highly recommend this beer. Pours a very dark amber. Off white head last long. Aroma of plum and dark cherry hit the nose first followed by woodsy notes. Taste of bitter cherry, dark chocolate, pepper and oak. The bitterness is strong and lingers. Good stuff.
