fiulijn (16427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Brown color, apparently lowly carbonated, with small creamy head. Aroma of dark malts, dry caramel, dusty, earthy, light puke. Flavor of dark caramel; the mouthfeel is quite round; then some more evident roastiness appears, and blends into a strong bitterness; very light residual sweetness; there is also a dusty impression.
More an American interpretation of Scotch Ales than an Old Ale.

Dark brown pour. Aroma of roasted malts, nutmeg, cinnamon. Medium bodied. Bit of spice in the flavour which compliments the coffee and dark chocolate flavours. Nice.

stantheman (779) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
On tap at Pumphouse Pub in Richmond. Dark reddish brown. A bartender’s maxi-pour, so no head to speak of. There’s some interesting depth here, and I don’t pretend to any knowledge of "old ale" as a style, but it’s surely a nice winter ale. Lots of malt and some caramel I think. A bit of hops well in the background. Nice.

Winter seasonal olde ale with a strong roasty body with some mild hops to balance it out, sweeter yeast notes.

manuchampions (1243) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2012
Pours a clear mahogany with light cream head & lacing. Aroma has some spice, alcohol. Taste is caramel and a good mix of other malt complexities balanced by the hops. Cinnamon and nutmeg present as well. Finishes dry and satisfying. Good example of style.
