Eye of the Hawk pours a red-brown with a big two-finger head which dissipates quickly leaving a thin white cap. Not a whole bunch going on in the flavor department. A quite strong caramel/malt flavor which masks the high ABV quite well. Almost a medicinal malt flavor. Aroma is strongly malt based. Not a well balanced malt flavor but not bad. I first tried it at the 2011 Minnesota Autumn Brew Review. The brewery rep gave my uncle and I a bottle under the table and was quite personable. Left a good impression of Mendicino Brewing for me. I'd drink this again and would be interested in trying some more of their offerings.

Flavorful, but not real balanced.

This is a very decent brew. With the hefty 8% abv that isn’t detectable. The light mouthfeel is a throw off of some of the flavors that shine through. This reminds me of what a candy beer would be. Almost like a medicinal fruit syrup followed by bready malt and slight hoppy finish. Though nothing screams excellence, this brew is still worthy.
