Mission Peanut Butter Dark Seas Imperial Stout
Bread, caramel, roasty, chocolate, alcohol, clove, with mild peanut butter aftertaste. Bitter and dark as a black hole. Boozy finish and thick body, very heavy "meal in a bottle" type beer. Very good Imperial stout by it's own right with a nice peanut butter nuance added in. I had one bomber of this and the buzz was unexpectedly powerful. Seemed stronger than 9.8% ABV but I had an early dinner so not much on the gut. Overall, great beer.

A solid porter with lots of powdered chocolate character and a hint of cinnamon. Pours deep black with a frothy small head that leaves legs of lace. Medium bodied and quite chuggable.

Aroma of tropical fruit, hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of grassy hops, guava and roast malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruit and hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

Mission Coconut Brown

Mission Fresh Hop Pale
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with bubbly white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of piney hop notes over caramel and nutty malt notes. Taste follows, big on the malt, low on the hops. It's a couple months past harvest, so not sure how old this beer is, but in a keg it shouldn't get as bad as this became.

Mission Raspberry Wheat
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet wheat, a hint of metallic raspberry, and some crackery bread malt notes. Taste follows, super low on the fruit, have to search for it pretty hard, pretty much a standard wheat beer. Meh.

Mission Dark Seas Imperial Stout
Nie ma fajerwerków, ale piwo bardzo dobre. Balansu może i nie ma, ale ciała w cholerę, oleista tekstura, wysoki poziom kawy i czekolady. Tak o, normalnie, dobrze.

Mission Carrack Imperial Red Ale
De color ámbar oscuro, despliega muy poquita espuma que además al poco tiempo se reduce a unas pequeñas islas sobre la superficie. Tiene cuerpo medio y aceitoso. A pesar del Dry-hopping, en su aroma aparecen las maltas muy potentes (Crystal y Centeno). Además la fruta está también presente, sobre todo naranja. En boca, como os he comentado es rotunda y muy resinosa. Redondea el conjunto un agradable caramelo para terminar amarga y seca.

Mission Dark Seas Imperial Stout
Aromat: średnio mocny, ciężki, słodki, czekolada, śliwki suszone, wiśnie w czekoladzie, praliny, trochę słodów palonych. Wygląd: czarnobrunatne, nieprzejrzyste, piana mała, w kolorze kawy z mlekiem, drobnopęcherzykowa, zaraz zanika. Smak: raczej wytrawne, gorzka czekolada, kakao, suszone śliwki, praliny, wiśnie w czekoladzie i likierze czekoladowym. Kawa, sporo słodów palonych, ciemne owoce. Nieźle zbalansowane, dosyć bogate, przyjemne w smaku, dobrze ułożone. Odczucie: ciało co najwyżej średnie, wysycenie średnie, finisz palony, gorzkawy. Całość: dobre, ale bez rewelacji, świetny współczynnik relacji cena a jakość, tańszy od polskich risów. Dużo czekolady i suszonych śliwek, dobry balans między słodyczą a goryczą, dobre ułożenie, niezłą wielowymiarowość. Tanie i dobre, smakowało mi to piwo. 7/4/7/4/14

Mission Dark Seas Imperial Stout
Kolor hebanu z minimalnym rubinowym prześwitem, obwódka piany. Zapach mocno czekoladowy z nutami miętowej świeżości, piwnicy i kawy. W smaku umiarkowanie słodkie, gorzka czekolada, świeża kawa, śmietanka, wanilia, niewielka cierpkość, alkohol dobrze ukryty, nieznaczne ciepło w przełyku. Bardzo gładkie i pijalne, dobre zbalansowane, mogłoby być jeszcze nieco intensywniejsze i gęstsze.

Mission Shipwrecked Double IPA
Cobriza y oscura. La culpa es de sus maltas tostadas que por supuesto no lo dejan todo en lo visual. En nariz aparece también claramente, además de madera quemada, aroma a brandy, pasas y algo de café torrefacto. Su sabor es complejo. Hay caramelo, madera y especias. También fruta y es tan, pero tan lupulada que su final es potentísimo y amargo (también algo astringente), y desde luego no apto para los menos iniciados.

Mission IPA
Slightly hazy bright orange color with a thin head of creamy white foam. Very malty on the aroma and front half of the taste. Cuts through the caramel malt just enough with grapefruit and pine tree hops.
