This is a really nice winter warmer. Had it on a cold night with a buffalo burger and it paired very nicely. 8.3% is a little high for the alcohol content, but Avery seems to like that sort of thing, so I went with it. Nice and dark and roasty, not at all bitter despite the 45 IBUs, but not overly sweetened by the malts. Definitely a fan of this one, and it's among Avery's best beers.

A: dark brown amber a beam of light shines through.

S: dark fruit!

T: salted caramel, nuts, biscuit, plums and raisins, pinot noir, some hazel. Very pleased.

M: fairly full and velvetty. Lovely on the palate!

O: definitely deserves a better rating. This is a wonderfully made beer.
