3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

"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.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
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

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
