Look, I dont break it down for the 5 "groups" ...all I know is its' a darker beer that's full of flavor! It's very crisp, smooth, you can taste the hazelnut & caramel and to me, this is heaven in a mug! ...I was a Sam Adams fan, but this has just took the place of my "GO TO" beer!

Plain and simple, if you haven't tried this, TRY IT!!! ...if you have and don't like it, ...10 bucks says you're a budweiser/miller/heinekein fan and shouldn't be reviewing a beer like this!

A+++ BEER!!!!

This excellent beer has a deep amber, almost copper, color and has a thin, white head. The smell is not overwhelming, in fact is very subtle. The taste is absolutely sublime. Not overpowering, not too hoppy, not bitter. It is perfectly balanced. The mouthfeel is smooth and silky. This has been my all-time favorite beer for quite some time. It's very hard to beat this beer.
