Dark Reddish Amber Coloring With White Ring. Similiar to a Dry, Alcoholic Kriek... Malty...and Hops...Fruity - Cherry, Yeast.... and Nice Warming. Subtle for What it is. Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2004
Red amber ale with no head. Apple cider aroma, slighlty spiced. Porto sweetness with resinous pinhey hops. Rich bodied and delicious. May 2004. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Pours dark copper with only a white ring for head. Caramel,sweet malt and hard sugar candy in the aroma. Very sweet initial taste lasts quite awhile. Alot of sugar present in the flavor. Candy,caramel and molasses. Has only a slight warming feeling. Already bought one more. Can’t decide if I want to drink it or store it. I will agree with the "sinfully smooth" description without a doubt. TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Orange/amber color with virtually no head. Aroma of fruit, alcohol and yeast. Flavor is sweet from the malt and candy sugar. Slight tartness in the finish. Alcohol is definitely present but not overly so. Nice. I’ll have to look for their imperial stout. Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Heavy malt and yeast nose, with a bit of head. This has a powerful flavor; full of rich fruit, roasted malts, Belgian character and a pleasant alcohol presence. Very full bodied.

Brownish amber with a shiny little tan head. Has a Belgian character with some roasted malt, fruity aroma, and hints of yeast. Sour and bitter flavor with hints of alcohol. There is an active carbonation and a nice roasted malt that peaks out from deep in the throat. A litle dirty in the mouth, not complex enough, just big.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2013 I am only recently starting to experience the Avery beers as they just became available in my region recently. Had this one on draft at Smokin Joes in Pittsburgh. Poured a bronze color with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet and citrusy. The flavor is sweet with noted hops, citrus, pineapple, cherry and spice. The finish is spicy and dry.Interesting. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2004
golden orange, nice fluffy head. Malty, corriander, dark fruits & alcohol nose. Tart, rasiny flavor. Vaguely buscuity (?) - nice and fruity. This is good but almost overkill - I’d rather have an Ommegang.

Bottled bomber. Cherry/Amber color. Moderate tan head. Very fruity aroma, Cherry and Prune. Sweet malty taste with a nice ending bitterness. Some mild alcohol taste. Multiple tastings. A good beer. My favorite from avery KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 I’ll be damned this is one hell of a beer. Nice hints of cinnamon and coriander, with the yeast keeping its distance. A sweet IPA asserts itself calmly as the beverage warms. Very persistent in its quest to satiate your palate. This is a very (a very= avery, get it?) respectable effort for a quad. Definite repeat.
