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.

Pour from can purchased at Distellers Outlet in Poway CA. Dark brown with a big off white head. Nice lacing. Smell is incredible. Vanilla, brown sugar, honey. Taste is very pleasent. Malts and a nutty tinge with hints of vanilla, defintley getting some chocolate too but its very faint. I purchased just one can, next time I'll get a sixer of this, really enjoyable.

T- Roast barley, sweet malt, light caramel, herbal hops creep in, which is slightly off putting. Long bready finish.
