This really is a great beer. I posted about it a while back during a great lunch, pairing it with some pate, a little cheese, and some bread. Incredible.

@Jay most definitely, I think that proper pairing with deep flavored foods will surely make the most of this complex brew. Cheers.

I fell in love with this beer. I had it in RI. I live in Westchester county NY. It’s hard to find. Does anyone know a beer distributer that sells it close to my home in NY zipcode 10543. Thanks.

Wish I had an answer for you! I’m very lucky to live this close to DE.

If you happen to be in Queens, I get it at Beverage Depot on Northern Blvd @ 166 st. in Flushing.
