My first beer of the night. Damn this is good. Aroma of bittering hops, chocolate malt, dust. Flavor is roasted barley, peanut shells, some coffee-ish flavors but not too intense, just right. Drying finish, good bittering hops. Really great beer.

Bottle. Pours a medium/dark brown with medium tan head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is of roasted malts. Flavor is nutty, roasty, with a bit of caramel sweetness up front, and bitterness in the finish. Pretty good for a cold winter night.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours mahogany with a light tan head. Aroma is predominately malty with bread, caramel, Walkers shortbread, and spruce hops. Flavor is caramel, nuts, brown bread, cocoa powder, and honey. Hops come in the flavor as well to balance out, adding a spicy hop profile to the beer. On the palate the beer is medium-bodied, smoothy, and creamy.

December 23, 2009 Full Sail Wassail 12 oz bottle Poors a dark brown, like strong iced tea with little to no head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Smells herby—of a lavender bush. Minor carbonation bubbles. Pleasing bitter aftertaste of coffee and bitter hops that creeps from the back of the tongue to the front, ending in a sour note. Taste of molasses, and brown sugar without the sugar. This beer is in the semi-regular rotation. We like it.

Beerandhockey8 (321) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - JAN 5, 2014
From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep copper, very thick tan head. Nose is a little more subtle then I would have thought. Notes of roasted malt, coffee, hops for a little balance. Taste is mostly bitter, medium body. Finishes clean, balanced out with the hops. Nice beer from Full Sail, a little plain but a nice winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2004
This is full of holiday cheer. Roasted malt, spices, and bitter hops. Hoppy, toasted nuttiness, toffee, raisins and roasted flavors. Rich and flavorful. This is a nice seasonal.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2002
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.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2007
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.

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.
