This beer is complex and yet so easy to drink. It has so many notes it could write an opera. Share this with a good friend and you won't regret it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very smooth and very strong. Also very nice. I think I could drink this until I passed out. Shame it comes in 6oz pours.
