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.

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.

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!
