Have come to expect lower and lower level of beers from Full Sail, but for $1.00 I keep trying them. This is better than (their) average. As always, under-fermented and really sweat. Some interesting things happen though as the malt gets worked through. Hops are solid but nothing special. I hate bashing the "47 employee owners" of this fine establishment, but this is yet another half-ass attempt.

Better than decent winter beer. Understated spicyness. Rich malts with some dark fruit and cherry flavor. Aroma of bread and fruit.

jhamp9 (1135) - Corinth, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Pours dark brown with a small tan and some lacing. Aroma was brown sugar, roasted malt, and some hops. Taste is bready with some hop bitterness and some alcohol. Little more boozy than than 7% but its not a bad thing.

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 (2324) - 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 (604) - 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.
