12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a dark brown, with a good white, almost silvery tan head.

S: The smell is enticing, with a lot of malt sweetness, and a hint of holiday spices. Smells a lot like a holiday oven filled with baked goods.

T: Very good, big malt notes upfront, I don't think this ale is spiced, but there are definitely some nutmeg and ginger notes, probably from the malt complexity though. Can't taste much in the way of hops, though there is a slightly stannic quality about the beer, maybe this is a hop effect, I am not sure.

M: Smooth, slightly viscous and syrupy, but not cloying.

D: Another good Winter Warmer, I enjoyed it even though it is 80 degrees out here everyday on the coast, one of Avery's better brews in my opinion.

Had on tap last night. Good thing I had it when I did as it ran out later in the evening!

A - lovely red color, nice head

S - citrus, sweet, pine from hops

T - malty sweetness up front, a bit of hoppiness

M - medium bodied, smooth yet nicely carbonated

D - really enjoyable; too bad it wasn't a bid colder out last night for this winter warmer! I could definitely see hunkering down in the pub and rocking a few of these though; it wasn't available in bottles around here (hardly anything from Avery is it seems like) but I would've picked it up

Fluffy, cobwebby off-white head which leaves some lace on the glass. Aroma is mild floral and spicy hops with notes of chocolate. Deep copper-red, which is more brown than red. Full-bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavor is notes of chocolate, caramel, nuts, slight diacetyl, dark fruits, followed by spicy hops and slight warming alcohol (this is 8.0%? I'm surprised) Finish is roasted malt, paper, and light grain bitterness.
