I must say I have a soft spot for ABA as it was one of the first to open my eyes and taste buds to the craft beer world. But really, you can't ask for a much better introduction. It pours a nice burnt sienna with a thick umber foam. The bitterness takes a harsh bite out of your palate immediately and keeps biting. In fact, as you continue the bitterness continues on for 3 or 4 swallows after you stop. Surprisingly, as you become accustomed to it you can begin to appreciate the roasted malts and even a little sweetness from the alcohol as it warms. Moderately high carbonation keeps everything in check. Altogether, I still love to drink this beer and test friend's taste buds with it.
