3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Draft in Lowell] Poured a lightly hazy, red amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dried fruits, floral hops, caramel, toasted malts, resiny pine, and a bit of alcohol. Taste of caramel malts, dark fruits, light roast, molasses, and a bitter finish with some alcohol in there as well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draught) Dark amber, nearly chestnut; amber head. Very malty notes in the nose, bread, wholegrain, fresh-smelling. Bitter taste, from both hops and malts, nearly coffee-like. Full mouthfeel, warming sensation, alcohol. Not bad, should get rid of too coffee notes for a real old ale - maybe 'American strong' is OK
