look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
12 oz bottle from a four pack bought at Ned's.
Appearance: Hazy iced tea with almost no head. Leaves some spots of lacing.
Smell: Smells oaked and big, but not all that hoppy. Some caramel malt and a bit of toast. There is some sweet citrus hops, but nowhere near the original BHM.
Taste: Upfront lots of malt sweetness, but the heavy oak flavor takes over. Lots of toasty oak and vanilla. Too much. Finishes dry, woody, bitter.
Mouthfeel: Big upfront, but undercarbonated, and way too dry in the finish.
Overall: This is a big step down from big hoppy monster. I thought it sounded good, but its just OK.
Serving type: bottle
