Great blend of hops with a really nice and solid backbone of malty greatness with hints of banana...really good...I would get this again in the near future.

Love this beer, very good balance of malty / hoppy flavors. One of my favorite.

Poured from 12 oz can into chilled glass mug. A very nice looking amber / copper colour with a white head. Smells mildly malty, maybe a little caramel. Taste is a great combination of malts and hops that nicely balance each other. Mouthfeel is similar with a little bitter aftertaste. Not bad at all. Prost!

Beautiful dark copper color and ivory thick foam. Had a pleasant aroma and wonderful taste. An extremely smooth ale that paired well with a crusty loaf turkey, bacon and American cheese sandwich (warm and toasted). I will buy this again. Very enjoyable ale.

Bottle to pint glass. Pours amber to orange. Little to zero head retention. Malty in the nose, some caramel candy. Heavy malt flavor, bready with honey/caramel sweetness, dry hoppy finish. Stronger alcohol finish. Viscous, slick mouthfeel. Fairly drinkable. Filling as expected for a hearty beer like this.

Pours a hazed, dusty with suspended sediment, deep medium amber producing 2 fingers of beige, frothy, shortlived head that leaves a little webby lacing. Aroma is bready, biscuit malt & fruity, toast, caramel, honey, slight floral & grass hops. Taste is similar but more robust. Toasted bread, biscuit, butter & candied fruit forward with caramel, honey & a more reserved fruitiness from mid-sip through the finish with hops bitterness manifesting nicely in the finish & aftertaste. There is a metallic/mineral hint in the bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied with moderate carbonation, has a slightly viscous feel, slick & coating on the tongue. A legendary beer & always a good choice.
