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.

very dark buy with white head leaving moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet fruit, raisin, malty. hint of booze. Taste is moderately sweet hint of bitter. Medium bitter finish..malty. I’m not sure what I don’t like about this, but I just don’t dig it.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 Dark red mahogany color leaves lacing around the glass. Has a sweet Malty/doughy boozy taste, dry with a slight sweetness. Flavor lingers on the tongue well after each sip. This ale is not half bad.

WAY TOO HOPPY!!! This is supposed to be an English Strong Ale? Could have been 20-30 IBUs less. Overall an enjoyable beer but they need to lay off the hops cause this was more bitter than the IPA.

2004 Bottle:
Cola coloured body with a nice thinnish off-white coloured head. Aroma of caramel, light english hops and some strong nuttiness. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong maltiness up front with some sweetness shortly following. No spices to mention, more of a mellow sweetness and toasty malt flavour. Aftertaste shows some metal and a light bitterness. Overall, a decent winter seasonal-no spices, but good with burnt sugars and english hops. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased by jon[r888710] at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 14-November-2004, with jon. Thanks for the beer :-)

Bottle, pours a clear mahogany body with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel, malty, slightly sweet and slightly roasty. Flavor is chocolatey with nice coffee bitterness. Finish is slightly roasty, and more than a bit cloying. Medium bodied I suppose. I like Avery ales, but this isn’t one of their better offerings in my book.

Mediocre strong ale. A bit sweet with big time spices and alcohol. Brown sugar hangin out with the heavy malt and slight nut taste.

Dark reddish brown body with a moderate head. Aroma is English ingrediants with notes of dark malts and fruits. Alcohol was always dominating though, moreso in flavor unfortunately. In short I thought this was an OK English Ale with too much alcohol. Bleh

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 En brun øl (33 cl) købt på arbejdet. Duften erfrugtagtig og humlet. og kan duftes langt væk. Skummet er cremefarvet. Smag: bitter, peanut, kaffe og brændt. Kraftig i smagen. Eftersmag er tør og bitter. - nærmest grape. Íkke volsomt meget kulsyre.

Very mild aroma and flavor. Very slight hops and some sweet malt, maybe a little cocolate. Not much else, kind of watery but not bad.

Bottle. The scent is subtle with light notes of oak. Clear and dark with deep red hue.Very light flavor of alcohol. Almost, but not quite soy after taste. Tingles the tongue, but leaves the mouth feeling refreshed. Not bad.
