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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a brownish red hue that you can see through when held up to direct light. Two finger white head, spider web lacing. The smell is odd at first. I get a faint unpleasent odor that fades as the beer warms. From then on, just chocolate and vanilla. Possible oxidation? The taste is far better than the smell. I detect hops, chocolate, vanilla, and an over all sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied. A good beer for the holidays. Must try.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle to pint glass, brown hue, minimal head of tan color, smells of malt and slightly of hazelnut, taste is malty, through and through, and only slight variations thereof do i detect, mouthfeel is surprisingly fuller- bodied that i expected and overall, not bad, don't know if it is a session beer but definitely one to have/enjoy while you sit back and soak in the holiday season

enjoy!
