It's no wonder this beer is an old favorite for so many, and that they keep coming back to it. Consistently outstanding, wonderful flavors of coffee and chocolate, strong and confident. One of my favorites in one of my favorite styles, in a group that is crowded with excellent offerings. I never feel this beer lets me down. And I love it as much in the heat of summer as I do in the bleakness of winter. Like an old comrade. Za vashe zdorovie.
