3.63/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Deep copper, too thick to see through. Not a lot of foam or lacing.

Smell: Caramel hops and… pancakes?

Taste: Raisins up front, followed by sweet caramel, brown sugar, coffee, and dark fruits.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy, with little aftertaste.

The Verdict: Not bad. A drinkable ale at a good price, it’s a blend of three different brews. Nothing too complex or exciting, just a mild dark ale.

Billed as Steinhaus Brewing, this is probably made by Firestone Walker right here in Buellton for Trader Joe’s.

4.05/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Got this 22 ounce bottle from Trader Joes for $2.95 and I've got to say this is one heck of a great value.
Chilled to 50 degrees and Poured a tall wide glass. Dark, Dark brown with slight lacing and minimal head which dissipates rapidly.
Aroma is scant but gives a hint of a sweet malty grain.
Took a mouthful and my first impression was, 'Nice, slightly sweet, well balanced, thicker than standard, higher than average alcohol, and very drinkable".
A very nice beer. Allowed it to warm, sipping it along the way and it became more aromatic, tastier, and even more drinkable.
I finished it thinking, "Yeah Mission Brewery, JOB WELL DONE!!!"
I do not know how they can put out a brew this tasty, with such a high alcohol content, at such an affordable price.
Then I though, "How come so many other breweries can't"???
Job well done Mission Brewery, I applaud you.
I bought a case and will be aging some of this. I highly recommend this brew.

3.28/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance- Not impressed with the head retention or lacing. Color is a dark, deep brown.
Smell- Nutty and raisiny.
Taste- Very toffee-like and raisin character to it.
Mouthfeel- Straight up medium.
Overall- Alright, I am revisiting this one for a third time so it is absolutely drinkable. The reason I am giving it a 5/10 is as follows: It is in a class of it's own being a blend of three different classes of ale. I'm betting the other beers that make this one up are better off drank straight than being combined into this concoction of a brew. I can drink it, but that's not saying too much. Cheers to those who do.
