COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

PorterPounder (7225) - 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.

aracauna (3495) - Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2004
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.

mjg74 (2973) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 14, 2004
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.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Bottle: Deep gold w/ a thin, short lived white head. Grainy malt, clove; fruity esters consist of peach and lemon citrus, along with candy sugar. Also lightly solventy. Balanced to just bitter w/ a citrus hop flavor in the finish and aftertaste. Hints of clove spicy yeast and bready malt, but are overshadowed by the hops. Aftertaste is more hoppy the more you drink. Some light fruity esters as well, but overall one dimensional. Med. carbonation, lighter full m/f, lightly dry. Alc. is well hidden. I expected more from this beer. I had it a couple of years ago and was disappointed, and I’m still to this day. The flavor just doesn’t deliver what the nose promises IMHO.

zathrus13 (1764) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Gold/amber color. Floral aroma, with hops and some fruit. Flavor is hoppy, but not as much as the aroma would lead you to believe. There’s a fruity flavor as well. Body is just right.

Pailhead (6385) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is fruit, alcohol, and some hops. Pours a transparent amber with a decent white head. Based on the aroma the flavor is a little suprising. Definitely malty, but not as fruity as I expected. Caramel and peach flavor with a very malty taste and slight alcohol burn in the finish. Spicey. Fruity and alcohol aftertaste. The burn is noticeable but the alcohol flavor itself isn’t overpowering which is nice. It's not hidden all that well, but it balances rather nicely with the other flavors. Hops in the aroma are stronger than the hops in the actual flavor. The aroma and flavor seem to oppose each other. What’s stronger in the aroma is weaker in the flavor and vice versa.

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - SEP 27, 2004
1 pint bottle. poured bright copper with a thin head. buttery hoppy orange aromas. sweet peach, apricot flavors, slight orange and dry bitterness in the finish. very strange and impressive. not as funky as a belgian but the fruityness seems hop induced. almost seemed spiked with fruit extract. only the brewer knows. If not, then it is a very impressive beer.
