Bought as a graduation gift for me, the time I drank from the Double-Magnum was among my better memories. More recent enjoyment here at home has been just as delicious, if not the same joy for what beer always represented since the dawn of time - a chance to enjoy times with companions.

A - Semi-dark. Not as black as an Irish stout, but still, like a fresh coffee. Reddish, with a thick head.

S - Like burnt carmel with toasted nuts.

T - Starts sweet, or at least feels that way because the after-taste comes on strong. Very bitter after-taste. Lives up to it's name; very arrogant. Moderate finish, alcohol is barely noticable in both taste and feel. It's strong in flavor, but not of alcohol in taste.

M - Arrogant, for lack of a better term. Despite the head, it's not very effervescent in the mouth.

D - A bit to harsh to be a daily enjoyed beer, it's nothing I would turn down.

The Double Magnum needs to be enjoyed at a party or at least with a whole lot of friends who respect "strong" beer.

Served on tap in a 14oz glass at Heartbreakers in Chaska.

Great beer, who's 2013 edition is far better than some of the recent Enjoy bys. In a beer this strong, you sometimes worry that the alcohol content will take over the taste profile. That is definitely not the case here.
