Avery’s LNC is a Belgian IPA moshpit of flavors, with banana, peach, cloves, and hops all battling, and I’m the winner. It’s a beautiful mixture of flavors, an enjoyable layered voyage. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Batch 5 (January 2011 - 8.91% ABV). Pours translucent orange, verging on brown, with a large sudsy white head. Smells malty, fruity and a touch hoppy. Tastes sweet, bready, a bit fruity, and not really bitter at all. Full-bodied with a silky texture and virtually no mouth-carbonation, Avery Collaboration, Not Litigation Ale finishes sweet, like salvation. T_Pliskin_11 (2) - - MAR 4, 2015 does not count
One of the best BSDA's I have ever had. This collaboration from Avery and Russian River is extremely superb and proves they are two of the best breweries in the country.

Cherry and faint wooden notes. A sweet yet boozy aroma back the bet as well. Cherry and amaretto start, while whiskey finishes the palate. A great, evenly balanced brew that offers a lot as it sits. Incredibly dynamic flavor profule. RickReallyBrew (99) - Franktown, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2016
I love Belgian Strong Ales. Avery always comes through when they brew a higher gravity brew. I love it

Draft at Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver. Midnight red with a very sticky, thick haed. Delivers a robust sugar/caramel sweetness but done in an exceptionally drinkable manner. This is an outstanding beer in the Belgian tradition. (#3132, 10/10/2007) shortamdstout (4) - Alabama, USA - JUL 18, 2009 does not count
loved this brew a great combo of two great beers, nothing bad i can find with this. BillKismet (4072) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2008
UPDATED: APR 7, 2008 This was called a porter at the bar and the brewers themselves call this a belgian strong ale, but it looks, smells, and tastes like an Old Ale to me. Red amber, melanoidin malt color with decent head. Deep cherry port and wood aromas tantalize. Flavor is full of rounded port, and cherry and wood. Seems mellowed and well aged. Wonderful complexity. Truly top-notch. Cybercat (5878) - Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Pours a semi-transparent, dark, golden amber with a very thick, fine-bubbled, cream-white head that sticks around a while. Aroma is rich and malty with fruity and yeasty hints. Mouth-filling flavor is very toothsome, mostly malty with some hints of hops and undertones of bananas. Texture is pleasantly smooth, but this beer still goes down with just a little sass.

Pours a nice cloudy pale amber with a nice white head which subsides rather quickly. Caramel aromas . Nice warm intial attack which dances on the tongue, and then fades to a nicely balanced caramel finish.
