Damn this smells like Catholic incense! Frankincense... A beautiful hop lacing to it as well with touches of dark tobacco. Oh this is gorgeous... Deep dark amber brew with a firm snow white cap. Wow, itís taken me about 5 minutes of appreciation before Iíve even quaffed a drop. Wow, very nice... very bright for the style and not soft and relaxed but punchy. Astringent tannins in the finish and hammering suggestions of a broad spectrum of cocoa, coffee and caramel. Hops are present throughout. Wow! This is definitely a pal to hang with in a winter wonderland. Wassail ROCKS!

UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Mahogany. Nose not ďwassailyĒ at all, lots of toffee and butterscotch, very rich and lightly sweetened. Flavor quite nice, a bit like sucking on a good hunk of toffee, deliciously rich. Lightly hopped. Very good.

Reid (2009) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2003
The beer pours a nice dark garnet almost brown witha lovelly thick inch high creamy off white head..that stayed quite some time Nice aroma..chocolaty and spicy tones..though well done. I dunno but this seems to taste better than when I had the rest of the six pack..its flavourful yet smoother and less aggresivesweet malts followed by a creamy chocolaty taste followed by a nice "zap" of hops at the end ..very nice. Nice and smooth and creamy on the palate. Pretty drinkable even for a hot sweaty night

BBB63 (6343) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Garnet hue with massive off-white head which settles down to a foamy ring, very good lace. The aroma hinted of toasted malts, mocha, vanilla, allspice, clove, fruitcake, piney hops, and earthy yeast esters. The flavors start sugary sweet with moderate spices, but really didn't overwhelm. The piney and citric hop nature kicked in to high gear midway through the tasting. The finish was a combination of old school ale (earthy, sublime and dry) and west coast new age (hoppy, brash, and creamy). Very nice mouthfeel in this underrated sesaonal brew which I have enjoyed every single time I have had the chance. Recommended.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Malt, fruit, spicy hops, and a hint of alcohol in the aroma. Brown-amber in color, pillowy off-white head. Great balance in the flavor of dark malts, spicy/piney hops, and fruity esters. Slightly bitter finish. Full-bodied, slightly warming. An outstanding balanced beer.

(Tap). Nice very dark brown. Nice feeling on the palate. Has mild chocolate taste without feeling too much like coffee. Very enjoyable brew, hope to have another soon.

Dark brown w/minimul bubbles. Molasses chocolate, cherry and some spice on the nose. Roasted malt, charcoal, bright acidity, witha rich but light hoppy finish. Some coffee flavors though not overly sweet...

Full Sail Wassail has a medium, cream-colored head, a dark, brown-red appearance, lots of bubble streams, and pretty heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of rich, sweet, malty, chocolaty, and vegetative smell, and the flavor is of all that, with dark bread crust, chocolate powder, fruit, and lots of strong residual bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit slick, and Full Sail Wassail finishes semi-dry, rich, delicious, and easy drinking. Overall, this is a most excellent Winter warmer. RJT

Nice. Reminds me of a Christmas ale but without the spice. Solid malt bill with added hops. Solid B. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
