VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 1, 2003
Jellied copper with a yellow glow. Small, off white, tiny bubbled head. Slow, big bubbled carbonation. Spicy hop aroma with undercurrents of peach syrup. Crisp, hoppy and boldly flavored. Spicy hops and a dry caramel base injected with the stewed peaches house character. Medium full body. Quite rich, yet briskly carbonated and bitter. Yeast pour darkens the liquid and firms up the now creamy head. Smoother and gentle, yet firmly spicy. Finishes with a ton of green, leafy, spicy hops and a creamy, fruit mix. Very nice winter sessional. PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 13, 2010
22oz bomber vitalized by the rain. Taste is border line non fullfilling. Like an amped up ale but too poser like to sink in the taste of excellence. Pours solid tan brown sade with nothing to see through. Goes down like an ice cube down a wet slide, but has a slinky resistance to the aftertaste that keeps you coming back. The Berkshires are beautiful. bbbeer (811) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2012
On tap. Red-brown with small off-white head. Aroma is malty, sweet. Medium body, a little oily. Flavor is pretty much malt, on the sweeter side, caramel, a little spice. Ok. ericnixon (746) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2006
A beautiful cloudy dark orangy amber color. Nice malty (almost pumpkin) aroma with a very clean and easy malty taste. Perfect as a winter beer as the alcohol is just high enough to warm you. Citrusy aftertaste. BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2006
[tap @ Bukowski’s] Pours a golden color. Aroma is sweet and inviting. Flavors are pretty interesting- kind of spicy, yet fruity as well. Nothing too overpowering. Nice malt background makes for a good hop finish.

Cuivrée en couleur, très faible mousse beige pale. Malt, houblon citronné et floral d’influence anglaise, un peu boisé, traces de cuivre et haut indice de sucre en arôme. Noisettes, vieilles feuilles de menthe et léger caramel en bouche. Corps plutôt mince, carbonatation effacée. Échantillon en fût au American Beer Fest, Boston, 18 Juin 2005. freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Tap pours orange copper with little of white head. The aroma is light of toasted grain, mostly bready. The flavor is smooth grain and earthy German hops with a light fruity green apple crisp drying finish. Not bad, mostly simple. vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2003
Has a apple cider look to it and smell is malted. Taste is of malts, feels heavy and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall a great heavy beer for the winter. TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2012
So not sure why ratebeer has this down as a strong ale. 22oz bomber. Light tan ale color with well holding white 3 finger head. Aroma is a little plain breadiness and sweet grain. The taste is a bit deeper with orange hops and spicy yeast and on the whole sweetness. Well balanced and fresh palate like all of Berkshire brews brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2011
22oz. bomber brought back by BP on his trip to New England: Pours a fairly clear amber color with suprisingly little head and very little carbonation. The aroma is malty sweet, with some hints of fruitiness, toffee, faint spice and a hint of hops. Taste is fairly malty, sweet with that faint spice again - and a very mild hop finish to balance it all out. Very smooth and overall not a bad beer at all.
