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

Poured from bottle very dark with a thick lumpy head that faded with some nice lacing. Taste is a great blend of slightly sweet bready chewy malts balanced with subtle hops.

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.

Aroma is strong and malty with a rich hoppy undertone. It pours a rich, semi-opaque mahogany with a thick, frothy beige head - very appetizing. Flavor is mouth-filling, malty with strong spice hints, plenty of hoppy bitterness, and just a touch of sweetness. Texture is lively and jazzy, and finish is lip-smacking.

Poured this from a 12 oz bottle during a holiday ale tasting that I organized. This was my favorite ahead of seasonal offerings from Anchor, Sierra Nevada, New Belgium, and Deschutes. Plenty of spice and carmel flavor, and enough hops to provide balance.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance- This beer poured a nice dark, amber color with a huge, fluffy off white head. Lacing was present throughout the life of the beer. Beer had a best by date of April.
Smell- This beer had a huge malty richness with great chocolate and caramel notes. A slight hint of hoppiness was present. Had a nice sour fruitiness to it as well.
Taste- This beer was full of malts and fruits. Very interesting brew. The beer had alcoholic esters which gave me a slight warming sensation which was balanced nicely with hints of chocolates and fruits. Again, as in the smell, a nice hint of hops was present.
Mouthfeel- Nice, thick, creamy body with medium carbonation.
Overall- This was a great beer which would be awesome during the Christmas season. Not one of my favorite winter warmers but still a wonderful winter beer.

a fine looking brew, amber and ruby in the light and otherwise dark with a beautiful roll in the glass and a bounce in the roll. Full of malt and then hops in the flavor, restrained without overdone sweetness. a mild fruit flavor not disernable with some spice perhaps licorice. Earthy and refreshing. A pleasant surprise, lush indeed and a beerdrinkers brew if ever there was.

A deep dark purplish-amber brew. Wonderful aroma. Deep, rich malty flavors with good spice hop balance. Heavy mouthfeel. Beautiful winter brew! Enjoy!
