This is one of my favorites. Strong, strong beer without the strong, strong sting. Mendicino made a masterpiece with this brew. I strongly suggest you give it a shot.

Bottled (backlog). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some grains, a bit of alcohol as well as a slight bit of floral notes. Flavour is caramel, some floral notes as well as some mild alcohol to it. Balanced, but nothing all too special.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks good. Pours clear orange/amber, however it does the scent of a poor home brewed ale. And not surprisingly, it has a acetaldehyde after-taste. Hop presence lacking and syrupy malt mouthfeel. Not a particularly tasty strong ale. Would not buy again.

From bottle to pint glass, pours a pale copper with almost no head. Sweet malty aroma, hint of blackcurrants and dark fruits, rounds out with strong yeast and spicy hops. Dry and moderate bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear orange-amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is lots of caramel, bread, vague soft fruitiness, cracker, and alcohol. Taste is bread, caramel, alcohol, yeast, a bit earthy, and medium bitterness. Medium body, finishes dry. Alcohol is a little harsh, not a lot of complexity.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks good in the glass, smells really sweet. The taste is sweet and malty, then dry and strong. I think $11 for the six was a bit on the high side, but whatís a coupla two tree bucks if it gets you where you wanna go. I will put this into the new category of beer I just made up, micro-brew malt liquor. As long as I donít have a headache in the morning, Iíll consider this a solid purchase, but make it a buck or two cheaper so I can get a lottery ticket, and itís a "rock" solid purchase.
