12 oz. bottle, pours dark amber. Aroma of English malts and sweet dried fruits. The flavour reveals much more complexity, with the aforementioned English malts and sweet dried fruits, along with prominent wood and hazelnut. A little cloying in sweetness, but this is a great winter warmer.

Bottle. Dark amber/brownish color. Smallish white head. Nice full malt bill on the nose with some spices, fruit and toffee. Flavor is very nice. Full flavor with some fruit, rich malts and some nice background hops that get you in the end. This is well done indeed.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 This beer mega-macadoscious rocks!!!
The aroma is of rich malt, dark fruits and chocolate.
A crystal clear, deep mohogany color. Handsome.
God, I'm a geek. I just called a beer handsome... and it's not the first time.
The flavor is to die for. Malty and slightly sweet up front. Well-balanced with a whisper of tartness and bitterness on the backside.
Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Medium-length, slightly acidic, mostly dry finish. Incredible beer! English Strong Ale? Ehhh!!! I'm not the categorizing expert that those who run the site and brew the beer are, but this brew reminded me of a Belgian Dubbel. Whatever. Drink one.

Tasted on tap at the brewery in Boulder. Dark red/orange appearance with a light head. Sweet alcoholic aroma. Pretty intense English Strong Ale flavor at first. Somewhat malty body that’s slick in mouthfeel like an Old Ale or a Barleywine. Definitely alcoholic flavor.

This one is very dark brown, almost black. and the head is nice. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, cough medicine and cheese. The mouth feel is oily. The flavour has nice notes of aroma hops, roasted malt, caramel, licorice, cough medicine and a dry, delicious bitter finish. Yet another nice beer from Avery.

Found at Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield, OH. Avery’s brews have all been pretty good so far and this is no exception. This is a pretty good seasonal ale to boot. Pours a pretty amber color with a medium thin beige head. Spicey aroma of connamon and hops. The flavor was a mixture of malts, brown sugar, cinnamon etc and was surprisingly rich. Good stuff!
