Eye of the Hawk is an excellent, strong, rich bodied ale that is "Bottle Conditioned" to perfection. "Eye" is coppery reddish-amber in color and its unique taste is the result of a judicious mix of caramel and pale malted barley, balanced with Cluster, Cascade and Saaz hops. This gives the Eye its luxurious flavor, substantial mouth-feel and that slightly dry finish.

Very dark fruit smell, sweet malty dark fruit taste, some hops in there that kinda brings it down a bit, interesting mix though

Drank from the bottle. Aroma consists of cereal, caramel, hops, and nuts. Taste is much the same. Slightly chewy, medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Solid beer

average frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. translucent thick light amber body. aroma: alcohol, honey, flowers and light hoppy. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation and heavy alcoholic finish. Aroma frutado. Dulçor frutado, alcoólico, lembrando um pouco de mel – saboroso, mas não dura muito. Amargor lupulado escalante entra em choque com forte e aquecido final alcoólico, que se sobrepõe a nuance inicial. 60 s

Bork (452) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Full-bodied heavily fruity ale with some alcohol in the nose and the chest. Pleasantly balanced flavors but noticeably strong.

"this was one of my first experiences with a strong ale back in the day, and for a while was one of my favorites. still one of their better beers, although it’s slipped a bit. nice hop backbone and balance, pours dark amber...try a blackeye."

Rätt okej bira här. Första för min del ifrån Mendocino. Hittade den i en liten butik i Helsingør. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mendocino Eye of the Hawk has a thin, cream-colored head, a murky, copper appearance, strong bubble streams, and very little lacing left behind. The aroma is of pungent, rich, sweet, spiced bread, and dark bread crust. Taste is of sugar, caramel, dark bread crust, light fruits (dates or figs), some bitterness, and noticeable alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Mendocino Eye of the Hawk finishes wet, sweet, and heavy. RJT

Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor are heavy on the sweet malts, cookies, some light floral and earthy hops but not enough to balance the sweetness. Would not have guessed 8% due to the sweetness and thin body.
