A-Pours a dark almost black, but when held real close to the light, you can see it's a deep clear dark ruby color. It has a medium to thin dark ivory creamy head that quickly dissapates to just a thin colar around the beer's surface. Has very sticky good lacing though.
S-Right off when I poured it, I smelled earthy hops with roasted barley mixed in with some soft bitter chocolate. As it warms, I get some nutty toffee notes. Very nice. Some faint caramel is there as well. Reminds me of the winter season, as far as aroma goes.
T-The taste is very scruptious. It's an wonderful melody of malty goodness and soft hop bitterness and flavor. It's kinda all jumbled up into this bitter-sweet roasted chocolate earthy nutty caramely milky beer. It's all there in balance. Not one of them overtakes the other. It's very nice. Complex but nice indeed.
M/D-This wonderful offering from Avery goes down so creamy and smooth. And it has a very big body for the abv. It's sweet but dry in the finish. Very nice beer indeed.

The body appears tobacco juice brown and features a thin yet sticky light tan head. Nuts and roasted malt grain aroma. The taste sports a malty sweetness offset with a somewhat bitter and slightly acrid flavor at the finish. Medium bodied; smooth and semi-dry finish.
This brown ale appears to have roots in within a traditional, malt-forward type of ale. The malt sugars are the key: rich, slightly charred in flavor and aftertaste, and with the hops providing a low-key bitterness to nicely complement the sugary sweetness. Robust and delicious.
