The success of HOG HEAVEN and THE REVEREND clearly demonstrates that beer drinkers are willing to embrace "BIGGER" beers. In the fall of 2001, we decided that a lighter BIG BEER would complement its darker colored predecessors. Salvation has luscious apricot and peach aromas delicately interwoven with spicy suggestions of nutmeg and cinnamon. This heavenly soft, champagne-like elixir is cellarable for 3 years.

Kind of a strange beer; I didn’t really pick up many Belgian characteristics, but there are a medley of aromas and flavors. Had some of the same aroma characteristics as the Kaiser which I tried the other day- namely, honey and soy, and there were also almond and golden raisin notes in this beer. Flavor was toasty, bready, and very yeasty (earthy) with golden raisins, alcohol, and caramel mingling with spices. Indeed a big "light" beer. However, the parts didn’t quite mesh into a "whole." My gestalt rules the day.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2005 Aroma is not powerful, gives off slight fruit, hoppy sent. Head was small but it was thick and creammy. Interesting flavor. Starts with intence hopps and a slight finish of apples, pineapple, and pear. Little too hoppy but the aftertaste makes up for it by not lasting too long. Wish the taste lingered in my mouth longer (lack of body).

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - NOV 9, 2004
Clear golden amber color with a moderate egg shell white head. Flowery mint leaf aroma. Flavor is moderately complex with mint leaf, a touch of honey, some light lemon with a lingering mouth watering spicy dry aftertaste. Palate is smooth and creamy. Interesting, but not my favorite flavor combo.

Pours is a nice cloudy tan. Aroma is hops and i get some citrus fruit in there. Flavor is more cloves than fruit but you get some fruity goodness in there. Very creamy and think with a nice burn at the end. The flavor is a bit weak perhaps but still a good beer. I would recomend the Reverend over this brew.

PorterPounder (6536) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Picked up at Whole Foods in Austin, Tx. Dark golden to light amber colored pour, solid, thick white head. Aroma of spearmint, cotton candy and bubble gum. Flavor has some of the same accents wirh some toffee like malty sweetness - quite delectable. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy, coats the mouth. Finish is strong - lets you know you just had a 9% ABV beer, but is hidden well. Another stellar product from Avery.

Beautiful clear true amber body that catches the light wonderfully and seems to actively glow. The head is smaller and fades more quickly than I’d like considering the style, but I can’t take off too much for that. Very ripe stone fruit and clove in the aroma. The flavor is dry one sip and sweet the next with a bit of caramel and a bit of dry hay in the malt. The heat of the alcohol is felt, but it doesn’t overpower the rest of the beer. Every once in a while I get a wish of sour dishrag, but it’s not strong and not always there.

Golden amber color. I enjoyed this more than the Reverend. Not as overtly sweet. I tended to taste a spicy peach sensation rather than the citrus others have mentioned. The high alcohol seemed masked pretty well to me. Enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Poured a reddish amber color. White head fades quickly. LIttle lacing. Aroma is fruity, malty sweet. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel. A touch of spices are present, malt predominates in this beer. Sweet sugary notes in the beginning and middle, some mild hop tastes are towards the finish.

Pours a deep golden color with a hint of red. Aroma is a little fruity and malty. First flavor is alcohol. A little grainy. A hint of sweetness and spice in the flavor as well.
