crossovert (6927) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
750ml gold foiled green bottle. No skunk, but big oxidation, not that bad in an old ale though, leathery, and sherry like with bourbon turning fruity.

beernbourbon (1284) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle at summer gathering thanks to Drew, thank you so much! Pour is rich maple syrup brown with a small beige head. Aroma and flavor loaded with sweet maple malt, brown sugar, balancing alcohol, light wood and a smooth reassuring finish. Best beer of the night for me. Held up really well over the years and is still exceptional.

750ml bottle. Tasted at RBSG grand tasting. Labeled 2010 anniversary ale (barrel aged). Hazy red orange color. Thin off-white ring of head. Loose bits of lace. Bigger body. Smooth kind of soft lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Moderate sweet taste, light spicy, some heat on it. Dark fruit, caramel malt, some vanilla. Solid old ale to try.!

Shared at RBSG 2014. Thanks to Andrew. Big want. Drank as a 2010 bottle alias. Nose is moderately boozy with a nice vanilla touch. Taste is a dried cherry and light stone fruit.

My first rating in about five years. Marked Barrel Aged 65/124, canít remember when I got this, donít know if itís 2005 or 2010. Pours a beautiful deep amber with a minimal tan head. Smells of whiskey, caramel figs and maybe some plum. Taste is boozy, drier than expected, with a touch of acidity, red wine and some apple flavor. Carbonation is low, I would prefer a bit of spritz, but mouth feel is smooth and itís not heavy or cloying. A warmth from the alhohol without a burn. I enjoy and appreciate this, but, like most barrel aged beers, itís not something I crave on a regular basis.
