Poured cold from bottle to pub style pint glass. Color is a dark reddish Amber. Has about a one inch head of white foam that seems to be sticking around (I'm drinking it while reviewing). Strong taste of malt and caramel. I got this beer as part of a build your own six pack at the liquor store. I love to try new beers, and hadn't heard of this one, so I thought, for $1.60 it can't hurt to try it. It was money well spent. I am enjoying this beer, and would drink it again any time. Can't believe it's 8% AVB!

An old friend from when I lived in Mendocino/ Humboldt. This has a very thick mouth feel and hides its alcohol well. A very malty, caramel-like taste that is quite unique. I love it's color.

No bottle date so rated as it tasted... which was like a 6 month old IPA.
