2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Here we go, pouring into a glass tulip.
Aroma: Smells a little like bread. After that first whiff the smell of my hand lotion took over, so thatís all I got.
Appearance: Pours a rusty ruby-brown color, with about a finger and a half of head. The individual bubbles are pretty large.
Taste: This is a strange tasting beer. Sweet at first, then it changes to bitter, almost sour aftertaste.
Palate: Medium bodied, but it almost seems thin, or slippery.
I got this as part of a build your own six pack. Itís a decent beer, but I personally wonít be buying anymore. It ainít got shit on some Stone Arrogant Bastard.

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 itís 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.

A pretty tasty beverage. Pours a hazy orange with sediment. Aromas are fruit and wet dog. Flavors are smooth for the high abv. Fruity and a bit hoppy. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Taste-ickles. Another "select" ale from Mendocino and a good one at that. Burnt Wertherís colour with an off white head. Big vanilla cookie, biscuit, brown sugar malt snooching up the nose as well as some light warming booze and background citrus. Very enjoyabeer, good price and nice meaty texture considering she ainít that dark.

Love the texture and rich caramel and hoppy flavor. Smooth taste but it has a mouth feel that gives you something to chew on.
