Copper amber in color, this medium bodied ale has a great balanced flavor. A fruity spicy hop finish compliments in malty caramel taste. Think of English pale ale dry hopped with German Tettnang hops. This ale was made to sustain you during the long New England winter.

Deep, brown-amber color. Aroma is somewhat of sour cherries soaked in coffee (with the cherries the dominant aroma). Flavor has some coffee-with-fruit notes, too. It’s pungent, but in a fruity way. Very malty, but not over-sweet. Very rich and multi-hued (fruit, coffee, chocolate, beer malts). Interesting.

Cloudy dark copper, with small light-tan head. Aroma is spicy, peach, green apple, and floral hoppy. Taste is spicy, peach, medium sweet, and floral hoppy. Mild bitterness. Darned good beer.

Has a apple cider look to it and smell is malted. Taste is of malts, feels heavy and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall a great heavy beer for the winter.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 1, 2003
Jellied copper with a yellow glow. Small, off white, tiny bubbled head. Slow, big bubbled carbonation. Spicy hop aroma with undercurrents of peach syrup. Crisp, hoppy and boldly flavored. Spicy hops and a dry caramel base injected with the stewed peaches house character. Medium full body. Quite rich, yet briskly carbonated and bitter. Yeast pour darkens the liquid and firms up the now creamy head. Smoother and gentle, yet firmly spicy. Finishes with a ton of green, leafy, spicy hops and a creamy, fruit mix. Very nice winter sessional.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 Pours a clear reddish orange color with a small head. Huge light fruit/flowery hops nose with a touch of spice. Full mouthfeel, slightly bitter turns to slightly sweet in the finish. A great winter session brew.

Very fruity floral nose. Thick off white, pinkish head. Ruby-copper-amber hue. Smooth pale malts, caramel,medium bodied, with fruity, hop bite in the finish. Very drinkable and pleasant. One of their better brews if u ask me. Hops are evidentin the nose, and come out very nicely in the finish of this very well rounded brew. 6.3% abv.
