Pours a reddish brown with a light off white head with light lacing. Smells of spices, dark fruit, pine and grapefruit. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a good hop presence. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with great carbonation. Overall this is one of the better winter seasonal beers Ive had this year. Reminds me of a red ale with extra spices.

shortlasting light tan head... pretty good lacing lasts through most of the glass. Dark Dark brown ... but still nice and translucent. Nutty biscuity brown malts dominated the nose ... like an less malty English old ale ... sort of expected low PNW/American hop balance. Taste is the same with some lite cherry and raisin mixed ... not overly complex by any means, but still supremely drinkable.

Pours dark copper with off white lacing. Aroma and taste is caramel, winter spices but the finish is spruce.

Merry Christmas Everyone! 皆さんメ a Full Sail Wassail 7.2% winter ale It pours a deep inky black with a surprisingly sweet candied fruit aroma. Fairly full bodied this beer delivers candied fruits, citrusy hops, malty biscotti and some nuts with a dash of cinnamon and possibly allspice. Quite sweet but nice.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a deep brownish mahogany color with a small tan colored head. The head fades very fast leaving just a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma of the brew is rather strong of a sweet fruity smell of a dark fruit nature. The aroma is heaviest of some raisin and plum mixed with some other sweeter caramel aromas as well. Along with these smells comes some spice of nutmeg and a bit of nutmeg. Some lighter roasty smells as well as a little bit of a toast are there as well, creating a sweet and lightly roasty winter warmer smell. Taste The taste begins much drier than anticipated from the nose. It begins with just a bit of dark fruit flavors of raisin and plum with some light caramel mixed within. Along with these tastes, are some rather roasty flavors of dark toasted bread. As the taste advances, the roastiness increases a bit with some coffee notes coming to the tongue. All the while, the sweet fades some, with some spice flavors of nutmeg and clove taking their place. In the end, with the sweet fading, the spice and roast increasing, and the oncoming of a little bit of an earthy taste, one is left with a somewhat, drier, and darker spiced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner side for a winter warmer with a carbonation level that is average. A thicker body may have helped with the lighter sweetness and darker flavors of the brew accentuating them more, but overall the feel was OK. Overall A rather decent winter warmer. It didnt have a huge sweetness or a huge booziness, like most winter warmers have; which was rather nice. It was in some ways too easy drinking and a little bland for

On tap at the brewpub - Pours bronze / brown with a beige head. The aroma has heavy roast, brown sugar, richness, nuts and a bit of spice. It has a medium / full body, but is still a bit crisp and has soft carbonation. The flavor starts with hearty malt, fairly dry wood and is malt heavy. The finish has light spiciness and a hint of berries. Nice.
