Ellie's pours out to a perfect dark, but translucent, brown. There is a bit of a fine head and loads of nice lacing. The aroma is weak - not much there, just a bit of malt.
The taste and mouthfeel are pretty darn good. It is a sweet, malty taste but more importantly, it is very creamy and soft, and not at all harsh. It burps up a very pleasant taste.
As would be expected from Avery, this is a well made and well balanced brew. I would say it is much less harsh than many "American" style brews.

It comes in a dark brown color, almost like a porter.
The aroma has mocha, lightly roasted coffee, heavily toasted bread, a caramel sweetness, lots of hazelnut.
The flavor follows with that hazelnut flavor, lightly roasted watery black coffee, a cocoa flavor, and then onto a lightly herbal finish. The beer robust characteristic almost similar to a really light porter.
Just an absolutely forgotten gem in the style.
