A - is a rich dark brown. Like a dark roasted coffee. The head is tan which dissipates quickly. Yet leaving some lacing from both the head and beer around the glass.

S - well balanced scent of roasted malt and grain.

T - malts and nuts at first taste. Followed by a hit of coffee before a clean finish. While drinking this beer, I almost spit it out of my mouth, out of astonishment. When the owner of the brewery told me it was 10.80%!!! Where they put the extra 5 - 6% of ABV in the beer, that I could not taste. I have no idea!

M - smooth as an egg white :-P

D - drinkability is stupendous, yet dangerous. Since the taste of alcohol is almost invisible. A drinker of this would not know what hit them after a few of these bad boys.

All and all, this a great well rounded beer from brewers with a good cause. Your Budweiser friends would probably enjoy this with you. A good gateway beer for the masses. (910 characters)
