Gets better as it warms. Had to come back to re-rate it.

I was very whelmed with this beer.... just whelmed. It's a pretty decent example of an old ale. In my opinion, nothing really stands out about this beer. Maybe I'm just expecting too much out of the style/my palate is spoiled by so many good RIS's...... It just needed to have a bit more punch for me. If it were a bit cheaper I think I'd be a little less critical but I've mostly seen all Avery beer checking in at around $10-11 a six. I've been unimpressed with all the Avery offerings that come in a pack and not a bomber, just my honest opinion.

The nose is a healthy dose of malt with an tinge of alcohol. I get a bit of dark fruit like raisin and a sweetness of purple grapes.

This is a malt bomb, which I love. It has a bold barley maltiness, caramel malt, nuttiness and fruit cake. There's is some additional sweetness in a purple grape flavor with a tiny hint of booze.

This is rather dry and definitely warming to the chest. Depending on your particular taste this is a very good winter warmer.

Solid "go to" winter warmer. Gotta have at least a sixer every December!
