COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our winter ale has a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. No spices, just a perfect blend of five specialty malts. Cellarable for 3+ years.

Bov (10454) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2006
bright and clear reddish-brown colour with a little foam; aroma of caramel and hazelnut, notes of fir needles, slightly roasted; sweet and full-bodied, very tasty, late but robust bitterness before a dry caramelish, woody and malty finish - a big very impressive beer; big thanks to fiulijn

Brown with medium off white head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, chocolate and ripe fruits. Sweet flavor that holds roasted malt, dark bitter chocolate and prunes.

daknole (10279) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2008
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.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
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.

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2002
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.

adnielsen (10068) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2010
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 thatís slick in mouthfeel like an Old Ale or a Barleywine. Definitely alcoholic flavor.

Sammy (9524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2005
Georgious dark and auburn colours, lasting head. Moderate spicey aroma. Intense taste, well carbonated. Well to drink with spicey food. Good malts throughout to balance out the flavour, and noticeable hops. Dry finish. Citrus and cherry and vegetable aftertaste.

Dogbrick (9425) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2002
Found at Jungle Jimís in Fairfield, OH. Averyís 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!
