Very rich flavors, dark amber in color, kept a very nice soft lacy head, very well balanced, some stong hoppy flavors gave way to very rich malty undertones in the aftertaste, very drinkable, excellent beer

This beer rocks. A beautiful color. Well balanced with a very dry finish. I like.

Smells malty, looks light, tastes rather plain. its no B.F.D., but its better than most mass produced brews.

Interesting brew.Hazy,short lived head. Leaves some lace in the glass.Kind of a honey aroma?A little slick on the tongue.Good clean bitterness. Almost mead like in flavor, interesting.Cant get enough of this brew.The 8% alcohol isnt even noticeable.My regular nightcap brew as of late.

Honestly, I can not stand a very malty brew. I would never go for this brew again, but it did have a high abv% which was nice.

This is hilarious. Reading all the ratings for this beer, I donít think any of them match: it sounds like each rater is rating a different beer. Samples must vary widely. Mine had tons of malt and fruit with piercing hop citrus and bitterness toward the finish. Rich and delightful.

I had to take several drinks of this too even taste it. My taste buds just received a shellacking by one of kochs beer. Once I could taste it, it was a smooth beer with just a small aftertaste
