From BandC. 2010 Vintage. Shame about the low rating this gets I thought it was lovely. Caramelly malt, moderately boozey, dried fruit flavors. Tends more quite drinkable to super complex. Serving: Bottle

This bottled brew from rbsg #47 poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy dark orange colored body. The aroma was old ale and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of old ale. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a murky orangish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes semi-sweet, malty, and a little hoppy with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

Very sweet malty smell and taste. Finishes with a sherry type back end flavor. Hops are present in balance. Very complex beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with a nice head that slowly dissipates. Orange color and chunks. Must be naturally carbonated though the bottle doesn’t say. Nice caramel flavor with alcohol evident but well blended. Good flavor.

wlajwl (3896) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Aroma is mint and very malty. The flavor is fruit, heavy malts, some dirtiness and an alcoholic finish. Didn’t care for the dirtiness, was decent otherwise.

Def a beer that doesn’t hit you right away. Revel in its complexity with yeasty flavours including bubble gum in the aroma, but a ripe fruity flavor. A unique old ale. 2010 vintage.

hrothgar950 (141) - Mabelvale, Arkansas, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Copper colored and cloudy with a malty butterscotch aroma and a thin tan head. Rich and malty sweetness with hop balance in the finish.

vmilaxer29 (404) - North Dakota, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy coppery brown with a finger or two of head and aromas of fruit and brown sugar. Flavor is OK, but seems a little overly fruity and not quite sticky enough. There is a nice spiciness there that adds a little something unique, but this is a pretty run of the mill Old Ale.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, deep amber with absolutely no head and lots of chunks of sediment, like flecks of black pepper. Aroma is quite sweet, some mustiness, lots of caramel, some toffee, cherries, prunes, orange. Smells like a mild double bock. Flavor is cherries, prunes, orange, lots of soy sauce, toffee. Sweet up front; very long bitter finish. Some alcohol on the tongue. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel. Think I’ll cellar a few of these.
