Bottle. Pours out identical to the picture of it on this page. Sweet and roasted smell with a touch of hops in the nose. Taste is smooth and kind of sweet with a nice kick of alcohol. Definitely a winter warmer. Not bad really.

glennmastrange (2226) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of toasted dark bread, light to moderate herbs and resin, faint dough for the yeast, with hints of raisin and dried cherry and faint spices. Head is small, fizzy, light tan, with no lacing but good legs. Color is dark mahogany. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with livley carbonation and finishes lightly alcoholic. A nice winter warmer and a good representation of as Strong English Ale.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2012
From the bottle, pours dark red with a thick off white foamy head. Average weaker aroma, taste is not overly spiced or overly anything. Very dry at the end. Caramel malty, good overall.

The aroma i fruit, spices, roast. The appearance is a deep amber color, off-white head. The flavor is much more roasty than the aroma, some toasted malts, spices. Roasty, spicy on the finish. Good.

Poured a nice dark brown color with a thin off-white head. Aroma has lots of caramel and some sweetness. A touch of bread as well. Taste is big and creamy with lots of caramel. Intresting grain flavors with some biscuit. Finish has a touch of alcohol and more caramel. Some chocolate too at the end. Overall very nice.

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2012
The Wassail is a very dark brown with tan head when aggressively poured and sticky lacing. At first I thought it might be a bock but itís too thick and roasty for that. Chocolate malt aroma with a hint of alcohol. Medium sweetness out front and a nice balancing dry bitterness. Heavy bodied and cloying, though the hop flush prevent it from bogging down. Wish it was year íround.
