Another of the beers I tried at the Ellicottville Brewing Company was the Fifteen, their fifteenth anniversary beer. The beer pours an amber color with a frothy off-white head. The aroma consists of caramel, malts, pear, and oak. The taste is malty with pear and banana, some oak accents on the finish, and the after taste leaves vanilla on the tongue. The alcohol content is 8.4% ABV. The entire time I was drinking the beer, I was thinking what a smooth and flavorful beer the Fifteen was. Lots of sweet tastes balanced with wood makes for a very enjoyable brew.
