Pours a medium copper color with a slight foamy head. Smell is sweet & slightly hoppy. Taste is sweet as well with a smooth creaminess. I tasted a hint of honey as well. Very easy to drink considering the 7.00% ABV. Perfect medium-bodied brew. Paired well with a monte cristo sandwich.

Poured from bottle marked 4/8/2011 into tulip glass.

Nice light copper color with beautiful fluffy head. Definite funky aroma which follows through in the taste. Nice hop sting up front, followed by that funkiness.

Nice mouthfeel, overall a great beer.
