A: Golden color and a little hazy.

S: Banana, clove and alcohol aroma.

T: Follows the nose but finishes with some caramel sweetness.

M: A little heavy but still smooth.

Overall: Decent. The flavors are there but the alcohol comes across a little strong. That being said, this is still an enjoyable beer.

Absolutely one of my favorite beers!! honestly can go good with anything, but you are better off enjoying this beer by itself. it has so much too offer, such great combination between the yeast and malt's making this an outstanding brew. you can put this on my list of top beers.

This is one of my favorite beers of all time! I had it on draft the other night and it brought back all the memories from visits to the east coast. I'm reading all these notes on how to "rate a beer" to style. I think this beer is freaking awesome, so I'm giving it a good score. Was it served perfectly with the perfect amount of head? No. I got it in a pint, not a snifter and was psyched because it's 9.5% MOFOs! That makes the score better, because it made me happy!
