Pours a dark amber/light brown color with a khaki head. Strong vanilla notes right off the bat. Thereís definite some whiskey character along with a decent fruitiness, too. Plenty of brown sugar, toffee, and bread as well. The flavor has strong vanilla and wood flavors and plenty of malt sweetness. Heavy on the toffee and toasted bread with a light fruit character. Sweet and malty and enjoyable. bhensonb (15093) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 12, 2012

"This is a pretty nice belgian ale, a little less dry than itís bottled Oliva counterparts. Pretty fruity and spicy, may be oak aged (seems so) but itís hard to say..." j12601 (10955) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Somehow didnít upload a rating for this, but I had notes in my own personal database. Weird because I uploaded ratings for SNís Agave Charlie which I had right before it, and Dark Horse Whiskey Richard, which I had immediately after.

Pour on tap, Avery Strong Ale fest 2012. Murky reddish brown pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of thick dark fruits, toffee and caramel, some slight earthy tones went right into the brandy part, some more sweet biscuit and bready notes as well. Taste was a bit more balanced with sweet dark fruits and toffees going into the vanilla and oak of the brandy, hints of earth and grass but fairly sweet beer.
