Just had my second shot at this beer on tap. Enjoyed it so much more this time. Rating reflects that.

In terms of taste the beer is exceptional. But watch out: the alcohol content is 9%. Not a beer to beer bong, or is it? Definitely worth a try. In fact, I will be grabbing this one again in the near future. Pricey, it is 9 bucks for a 4 pack -- so not a beer to share. Who would want to share this one anyway?
