COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet, caramel aroma. Clean, crisp taste, and an almost dry aftertaste. Interesting and complex. Very flavorful with strong malt presence.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 looks pretty damn tasty..nice 3.4 inch of pure cream on top of an evil looking ruby/maroon..the aroma was a malty bready slightly spicy concoction..malty, metallic, bready flavors..no hop profile at all..just a bunch of semi-creamy malts..but it bores me.

cloudy throughout. Tons of barley in the nose, I like that familiar Aass aroma. Nice and malty, with a dry-ish finish. Sweet stuff.

Pours a dark brown color with little head. Sweet and malty, with notes of bread, biscuits, and cookie dough. Also a hint of fruity sweetness at the top. A good beer, but I’ve had better Christmas beers.

Nice color. A little skunky with a boring tobacco like aftertaste. Won’t buy again

Good, malty aroma - at first skunky - but it mellows and sort of grows on you. Kind of a thin pour with a light head. Detect a bit of chocolate undertones -reminds me of a schwarzbier as it has the taste of a stout but not the same heavy feel to them. All in a all a good solid beer.

Aurelius (4561) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2002
Super malty flavor and aroma. Grainy tasting after you get through the malt shock, then sort of molasses-y and woody. Grainy palate. Decent, but I’m not overly impressed.

This attractive dark, reddish brown brew was the highest rated Winter beer at a tasting I hosted a week ago. On the Ratebeer scale, it averaged a 4.2 overall score among 10 raters and beat out the Winter offerings from the following brewers (in order): Full Sail, Anderson Valley, Hales, Goose Island, Sierra Nevada, Deschutes, Redhook, Pete’s, Summit, Lake Superior and Shiner. On my list, it tied for 4th, with Sierra Nevada’s 2002 Celebration and Deschute’s Jubelale tied for #1.

This was a decent beer, but didn’t make me think of a Vienna. Sweet on the tongue and almost wood like. Not their best.
