Pours a reddish amber with a bit of tan head. Aroma is a grat combination of malty hops and bits of chocolate and caramel. Smooth finish with a medium body. Definitely would pour this guy again.

Schysst beska, hel del sötma, väl dold ABV, känns krallig utan att vara övermäktig. Ganska bra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Another 22 oz. bomber from HEB, poured into a glass stein. I like the color sort of a reddish brown. Ivory foam. It laces nicely as you drink it down. Tasty flavors, slightly piney, nutty maybe. I am enjoying the big flavors these days and this is a step off of that. I prefer a hoppy IPA or a Belgian but this is quite pleasant. A little higher on the alcohol content but you will not notice it. Oh yeah, definitely worth a return trip.
