3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by JoeMcPhee. Nice aroma, spicy, reminds me much of a pumpkin ale. Full mouthfeel, decent carb, bready and peanuty with some spices, sweet residual malts. Decent enough.

bottle from a mixed sixer. pours clear garnet with a mid tan head. excellent malt and spice nose. very true to style as a winter warmer. easy drinking but the alcohol is present to make you sip it. very nice brew overall.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Rich caramel with berry aroma. Deep amber colour with a crisp off white head. Fresh texture, spices, sweet and nutty ale. Smooth and rich finish. I would buy a bottle of this again. Enjoyable ale.

Wow. I had all but written off Garrison as the worst of the breweries within 3 hours of my house then I had this brew. It is fantastic. I’m still trying to come up with a way to explain its goodness
