Hands down the best beer I've ever had. I heard all the hype and went down to the brewery to try it myself. I left with 3 cases and a new favorite beer.

Both the aroma and flavor are extremely complex. I have never tasted a beer with so many flavors and smells that come on one after another after you swallow.

If you haven't had one you are missing out on something special.
