Style: Imperial Stout ABV: 8.3% Purchased at: Brother’s Market; Lisbon, IA Pour: Thick brown/black pour with a brown head. Aroma: Wonderful aroma of rich coffee and chocolate with roasted malts.

Like I said above, you still could possibly find some on the shelves and it’s the perfect time to stock on a few four packs. A must try brew.
Hoppin' Frog Turbo Shandy
rated 2.9 10 years ago
Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 5 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 6
REVIEW Style: Fruit beer, shandy ABV: 7% Purchased at: Woodman’s Market; Madison, WI. Pour: Blonde pour with a medium white head. Aroma: Lemon fruit scent, maybe some yeast notes as well. Flavor: The sweet lemonade is there. I described it as very close to drinking a Squirt soda. Ratebeer.com rating: 39/100 Beeradvocate.com rating: 79/100 Overall: C+ My recommendation: A hot day, this works well. The only drawback for me, not enough beer flavor and too sweet. A good 22 oz bottle to share with somebody.
