This is one of my favorite beers. I'm honestly not a fan of Avery's normal line-up. They are a bit too hoppy for my taste. But these big beers like The Reverand, Samaels and The Beast are in my opinion, world class. The Beast pours a beautiful color and just the right amount of head. The nose is fruity and provides a solid hint at how stong this ale is. The taste is astounding. Sweet but not too sweet. Very well balanced. It's a good thing it's so expensive because these things go down way to easy. -And at 14.9% ABV, you could get yourself into a heap of trouble if you're not careful. I highly recommend The Beast.
