Let me just say...I've had this beer ON Tap and in a bottle....It is one of my all-time favorites...tough to find sometimes though...never saw it in bar on tap....I purchased a keg for my home bar...consumed it with two nice Hobgoblin glasses...the bottle looks great too

Turned "ON" a lot of people to this fine brew...even the most skeptical snobs

The appearance is a dark chestnut amber---great coloring--almost glows-looks tremendous in a glass pint

Smells great and nothing like any other beer--a bit toffee, bit fruity--a tiny bit hoppy

This beer tastes like no other--complex and very satisfying...I crave it

very nice mouthfeel--goes in soft and tastey---finishes a bit hoppy---perfect blend of malt and hops

Very drinkable beer--much like Smithwicks---but a definite step up in quality with a more robust flavor and complexity

Overall, again, I will say, I love this beer---tastes even better after it warms a bit---give this one a good try---I always have at least one case on hand at all times....

One of my all-time favorites! The moderate carbonation and reddish hue make for a very presentable beer. The aroma and flavor have a certain spicy character that I do not recall any other beer having. Not sure of the origin, but the unique flavor keeps me coming back. My perfect beer!
