I absolutely LOVE this beer. It has a real different flavor to it...almost a coffee flavored beer...to me at least. Its best VERY cold...but is a very unique beer, and definitely one of my all time favorites.

I would say though...that you probably need to develope a bit of a taste for it...it doesn't usually come right out as a smash hit on the first try. But it will stick in the back of your mind...and you'll return for another one someday...and that's when you'll realized how good it is.
