Avery Collaboration Not Litigation

CIMG2982

Awesome story with this one. Two breweries, Avery and Russian River both have a beer called Salvation. The two head breweries, being friends, decided that having the same name wasn’t going to be an issue, and then decided to blend them together. It’s nice to see when two companies can work together, instead of the Monster/Rock Art debacle.

Stats:
Belgian Strong Dark Ale. 8.7% ABV. Colorado. Batch #3.

Dark copper color with a nice head. Lots of sediment in this.

The nose brings spice, brown sugar, caramel, and dark fruits with some yeast. Nothing spectacular.

Good mouthfeel, pretty big body.

Tastes like the nose. Lots of brown sugar, slightly sweet, dark fruits, honey, and caramel. This beer seems really disjointed. The backend tastes like a mess. Lots of yeasty-ness, as well.

I recommend that you don’t purchase this beer. It really does taste like a mix of 2 beers, and that just doesn’t work. Terrible backend flavor. This beer just seems to have parts that don’t compliment each other. 78 points.
