Virginia Pour House Notes: This beer pours a clear, deep red with a small off-white head. The aroma isn’t very strong but some spice and pine notes pop through. The beer tastes of deep, rich malt with some subtle winter spice underneath. It is slightly boozy and warming, and surprisingly drinkable. I like this beer because it is not too spicy but still has that big, thick, warming character of the best winter seasonals. Another winner from Avery.
