This beer, in my opinion, is probably the best in the world. It has everything that I look for...great taste, high alcohol, very complex, yet very refined. It is very special. It does have a beer/mead taste which is very unique. Although this beer is 9% alcohol, at times it feels like it has considerably more alcohol content - an opinion that has been voiced by others who have had it. Overall, an excellent, truly world-class beer. Certainly pricey, but in this case you get what you pay for.

My favorite beer of all time! Which explains why I always bowed down to the god Horus. Not only is this beer 9% abv, but it taste like no other beer out there. It’s brewed with real grapes but its taste isn’t overbearing. This beer goes the extra mile and so do I to purchase this classic gem.

One of the best beers I have tried, you can really feel the taste of honey. I dont know how people can rate 92 on this beer, it is 100. I will bring a lot Brazil, specially because I never find DogFish head there

I feel that MIdas Touch is the best beer in the world. It has captured the wine and beer world simultaneously. Because it uses muscat grapes which are used for white wine and combines it with a belgian tasting yeast and malt, you get an oak taste while eliminating the excessive sweet and sour taste of wine. The grape, hops, malt, and yeast round out the beer giving the drinker the great sweetness of wine and the crisp bitterness of a malty ale. Robert Donahue
