COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eye of the Hawk is an excellent, strong, rich bodied ale that is "Bottle Conditioned" to perfection. "Eye" is coppery reddish-amber in color and its unique taste is the result of a judicious mix of caramel and pale malted barley, balanced with Cluster, Cascade and Saaz hops. This gives the Eye its luxurious flavor, substantial mouth-feel and that slightly dry finish.

Pours amber with a thin head. Aroma is malty with some fruity notes. Taste mirrors the smell. Nice mild bitterness with a dry finish. Alcohol is well masked. Overall a fairly decent offering. Not my favorite style but good.

Very dark fruit smell, sweet malty dark fruit taste, some hops in there that kinda brings it down a bit, interesting mix though

Drank from the bottle. Aroma consists of cereal, caramel, hops, and nuts. Taste is much the same. Slightly chewy, medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Solid beer

danielyabu (1683) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - JAN 12, 2015
average frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. translucent thick light amber body. aroma: alcohol, honey, flowers and light hoppy. if: moderate sweet light bitter. ff: moderate sweet bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation and heavy alcoholic finish. Aroma frutado. Dulçor frutado, alcoólico, lembrando um pouco de mel – saboroso, mas não dura muito. Amargor lupulado escalante entra em choque com forte e aquecido final alcoólico, que se sobrepõe a nuance inicial. 60 s

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 it’s 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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
