Spicey, hoppy aroma. Very creamy in palate. Nice flavour, but kind of watered down. Sweet, well balanced. Not bad.

2002-Nice clean amber brew. Aromas of hops and light spice. Nice mouthfeel with malt countering the hops and spice nicely.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark ruby color into the glass, with a smallish off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malt and hops. Taste is a mix of hoppy earthiness and bitterness, with light sugar and malt. The first time I heard the term "Wassail," it was referring to hot spiced apple cider mixed with spiced rum.
12 oz. beer.

Really enjoyable ale. Bottle. Nice roasted malts and a sweet caramel/molasses up front with a nice bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Mahogany, small head with tight bubbles. Mildly carbonated. Sweet aroma. Flavor showed malt upfront followed by a non-offensive metallic astringency finishing bittersweet. Low hops with a lingering, nonoffensive metallic aftertaste. Medium body, crisp finish. Perhaps I could have let this one warm up a little to get different flavors.

Pours deep brown, almost black, from a bottle; nice aroma of malts and hops together. Nice flavor that is suitable for the season; caramel malts with a hoppy punch. Better than the other 2 Iíve had from Full Sail ,the IPA and the Pale Ale.

Small head.Nice ruby-brown color.Aroma was not much,but I have a cold,so I really canít say too much about it.The taste was a nice toasty,somewhat bitter,caramel without the sweetness.KInda sticky palate,which I find desirable.Finishes with a nice bitter hops,but could be a tad more hoppy for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorite winter beers. The easiest drinking of them all and one I wish i could have year round. Deep amber color with white head. Primary taste is a toasty burnt malt flavor and spicy hops blend together into a great bitterness. As bitter as an IPA but not just from the hops and a good malt backbone. I love it.

Huge caramel raisin aroma and flavor, strong mineral depth with a bright malty finish. A really nice representation of an english strong ale!!

Nice thick body, very creamy in the mouth. the flavor is very subdued and friendly. the alcohol is warming in the end and as i exhale. a few spices are evident but there is nice hop flavor and bitterness in the end.
