Since so many people wrote how it pours, etc. I'll just say - the taste is worthy of the name. It's bold, arrogant and in a way overwhelming. Really hard to forget and I often want to go back to it. I wrote a bit more some time ago - http://nextbottleplease.com/?p=162 .

Pours a dark reddish brown with a yellow tinted two finger head. The smell is a perfect balance between the hops and the sweet beady malt. Caramel, orange, vanilla, candy. The flavor is also a perfect balance. It's bitter, very bitter, but there is also a nutty sweetness. It's hard to honestly review this beer as it has been an old standard of mine. The First Craft Beer I Ever had.

Good but wish it was a bit less bitter.
