Not a fan of big beers but this is the exception. The aroma is orange, orange blossom. You can tell this is a big beer. You get a full mouthful with this beer. It tastes of citrus only now much more grapefruit, hops but also a lot of maltiness. If you like beer with everything then this is the one for you.

Avery is really a hit and miss with me. So, I did not know what to expect from this brew. I was surpised! In a good way.

Poured into my Arrogant Bastard pint glass from the 22oz bomber. Pours a hazy copper color with a 2 finger tan lacy head that quickly disappated.

Smell was big yeasty bready tones with big malt scent. A touch of alcohol is noted along a smidgen of hops.

Flavor took me by surprise. Huge malt bomb. Big yeast and bread flavors smack you taste buds like a Chuck Liddel over hand right. Caramel flavors are big. The alcohol is not to noticable at first but becomes slightly present as the brew warms up. Just a slight touch of hops on the finish.

Mouthfeel is full but not mealy full. This beer is my new favorite for the Marzan style. I have not been this excited about a Marzen since Jubel was brewed. Thank you Avery for this bomb! Malt bomb that is!

beautiful neon copper color with oatmeal colored topping.
fruity, sweet smell, like a dopplebock.
full-bodied, rich, sweet, malts, caramel. not unlike a dopplebock. very healthy taste and a great starter for my evening at 9% abv (BA say 10.03%).
overall, i very much like this. i've had a few from this brewery and i remember them being very good. it tastes like a german product which, i think, is an accomplishment and an achievement. and for such an impressive abv, i think it deserves a very high overall rating. i dont get much alcohol burn from this and that factors in to my opinion... may be my highest rated american beer.

Big rich liquid bread malt nose seasoned with spicy, herbal, floral hops.
Hazy peach body under a 3" snow white foam cap that is reasonably persistent and lacy for such a big alcohol beer.
Palate: creamy, rich, thick and malty liquid bread kept under control by a moderate hop bitter presence on the finish. Big malt masks the alcohol.
Full body, medium to medium low carbonation, warming.
