Poured a orangey-brown with a half-finger of head, there was light lacing. The smell was nutty and pleasant enough but the taste was surprisingly aggressive and bitter, especially the finish. I wanted to like this because I like their other offerings, but I didn't even finish this one.

Happy Thanksgiving 2011-
A- Pours a dark brown w/ a one finger cocoa head that quickly disappears. Good lacing on the side of my snifter glass.
S- Malt, chocolate, barley, hops... Definitely on the weak side in the smell department, but pleasant for the style.
T- Taste is not bad- a step up from the nose. The hops really come out in the flavor, as well as the malt and barley. Good for the style.
M- Medium light in feel, and somewhat dry. It almost feels like a light barleywine. Nice malt/hops aftertaste.
O- Nice beer for the style. I'd pick this up again if I was in the mood for it. Nothing spectacular, but a solid brew.

The appearance wasn't very clear.
The smell was average
The taste was hoppy and aggressive. It wasn't that great though. It wasn't a relaxing Christmas taste.
The mouthfeel was nice, but I didn't take many notes about it.
Overall, it wasn't enjoyable because of the taste. I like Avery Brewing Company. Why can't they do better than this?

A: dark pecan ale with some orange hues. a finger of off-tan foam falls to a sheet of the same. Excellent clarity. Spot lace.
S: Sweet, slightly molasses malts are nice. No real hop presence here for me.
T: The alcohol is evident here initially (off-putting for me). Some pecan flavors. Some licorice (so faint).
M: thin with moderate carb and semi dry finish.
O: Decent beer. I like it as the third or fourth for the night, a little unrefined for the premier drink.

My score might seem low but this beer is really nice. My first time having a bottle and my 4th or 5th Avery.
Appearance- black with a little light showing through. Heavy good looking head. The head holds the side of the glass very nicely.
Smell- not really there. There is not a neg. smell but not a positive either. Very low.
Taste- is nice. It is about average. There is not a big hit flavor but it is refreshing. I could drink several of these in an evening.
Overall this is a quality beer. I am planning a holiday beer party and this will make the list.
