Roommate brought these home, so not sure what the store cost is as he works at the distributor and gets them for $10/case. 12oz brown bottles with a freshness date on the side of the label. The website says they change the art work on the label each year, so it will look different from year to year.

The beer poured a clear dark garnet color with a 1½-finger tan head that lasts a few minutes and leaves tons of lacing.

The beer smells like molasses and caramel.

Not as sweet as the smell wouold indicate. More of an earthy hop flavor along with a dry roastiness. There's a little caramel/molasses flavor underneath, but not enough to call it sweet. There is also a touch of nuttiness and spicy alcohol, but still the 6 different hops used dominate the flavor. 60 IBUs, but not overly bitter.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Despite its high ratings, I'm not a big fan of this one.
