Got this 22 ounce bottle from Trader Joes for $2.95 and I've got to say this is one heck of a great value.
Chilled to 50 degrees and Poured a tall wide glass. Dark, Dark brown with slight lacing and minimal head which dissipates rapidly.
Aroma is scant but gives a hint of a sweet malty grain.
Took a mouthful and my first impression was, 'Nice, slightly sweet, well balanced, thicker than standard, higher than average alcohol, and very drinkable".
A very nice beer. Allowed it to warm, sipping it along the way and it became more aromatic, tastier, and even more drinkable.
I finished it thinking, "Yeah Mission Brewery, JOB WELL DONE!!!"
I do not know how they can put out a brew this tasty, with such a high alcohol content, at such an affordable price.
Then I though, "How come so many other breweries can't"???
Job well done Mission Brewery, I applaud you.
I bought a case and will be aging some of this. I highly recommend this brew.

Picked up a 22 oz bottle at Trader Joe's, only cost $2.99, so even if this was an average beer, it would be a bargain. Luckily, it was a little better than average.

Appearance: The worst aspect of the beer. Dark brown with some copper hue, no head retention. Ends up looking boring. Nothing special.

Smell: Here we go. Some complexity. Sweet malts, dark fruits.

Taste: BAM. Lots of sugars, malts, and dark fruits. Slight hop bitterness which recedes as the beer warms. There's a lot of complexity here. Paired exceedingly well with pulled pork sandwiches. Good for sipping, like a fine wine. I bet it ages well after a year or two. Might have to pick up a couple bottles, the price is worth it for the taste alone. It's too bad the rest of the beer doesn't live up to this aspect. Some alcohol warmness which is always, always welcome.

Mouthfeel: Bubbly like champagne. Crispness is nice. Goes down easy.

Overall: It packs a punch thanks to the deceptive ABV. At 8.5%, a bomber does the trick and puts you in an exceedingly good mood. For the price, it's hard to find a better bargain I think. Though it's not hard to find a better beer. I'll pick up a couple more next time I'm at Trader Joes.
