Nice pour great smooth taste, but a little bit too much of a hop finish for my taste. Very little head, deep honey color. Not too bad.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2004 12 oz bottle at Azure. Poured with no head, fresh tasting though, good hop presence more along the lines of dark ale, a maibock?
Re rated and upgraded after drinking at the Electric Factory - 22 oz bottle is best buy at the bar, and on draft at the Old Bay: rich and filling. The 36oz NY strip of beers.

I’m not sure if it’s the style or what, but I wanted more hops. It had a very easy drink to it however. I will come back for more.

Pours little to no white head. No lacing. Aroma is a sweet malty. Color is a hazy copoer. I don’t know why but I get a Malibu Rum flavor from this, not that its bad , it just reminds me of sweet coconut for some reason. Slight bitter hops palate. Decent beer.

one of my favoriate all time beers. Good strong ale, not much in the way of aroma, some hoppy essence, but the gold lies in the taste. It has a moderate hoppy and bitter essence mayched with a sweetness I can only describe as "honey". Its not over powering, only adds to the quality taste of this wonderful beer.
