A beer to be savored. Wow. Amber-brown, nutty, malty, not much hops. Looks wonderful in the glass, and smells like the nectar of the gods. The first sip makes you smile. This is a winter beer, meant to be sipped when the winds howl and the rain patters at your door. When my wife and I are fortunate enough to come across this beer in the very few stores in Texas smart enough to stock it, we horde it and parcel it out over weeks. If you want a big beer that drinks like a meal, pick up a few bottles of this and wait for a chill night.
