Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 01-05-2002

This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficianados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

Hog Heaven pours a dark reddish color with a small lacing head. There is a huge sharp aroma, with a very sharp fresh unique hoppines note. The taste is big bold, oaky, and floral, very sharp flavors. Good body and good feel. Overall, its a very big and bold beer, but the flavors don't come together the best way.
