COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
How do you survive three months of turkey, re-gifted fruitcakes, and decorating four different times from the end of October to January? A lot of really good beer. This traditional Old Ale exhibits a pronounced full, rounded malt flavor accented by English Goldings and Fuggles hops. 18° Plato and 60 IBUs.

MadRobin (1963) - Silver Spring, USA - DEC 18, 2013
On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Clear, dark chestnut with a khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of caramel, light pine, even lighter citrus, a few peppery spices and a touch of toffee--all of which are pretty subtle. Taste of spices, mild fruit, caramel, toffee and toasted malt. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11/27/2013. From bottle. Pours red brown with a short tan head. Malty aromas with caramel and spices. Plenty of hops added which is unusual for the style, but works pretty good. Flavors of spice, caramel and bread. Not a bad beer.

Butters (3775) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Clear golden amber with good offwhite head. Malty toffee toasted biscuit with just a slight earthy hop for balance. Kinda like a watered down and hop added version of the scotch ale. Decent, but nothing special.

HopTsing (427) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2012
From the came adark amber brew with a thin white head. Aroma of malt but not much. Medium full bodied with fairly well balanced hop and malt with a hint of honey. It was nice and drinkable, but underwelming.

tia (927) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Tap. Auburn with minimal dissipating head. Smells like chocolate, bread, and a hint of spice. Not to sweet, not real hoppy. Medium bodied with a little tingler on the tongue and a dry finish.

Bottle from Appalachian vintner. Pours brown with an inch of khaki foam. A bit of floral hop on the nose. Lots of malt on the tongue. Nice sipper. Finishes clean. It’s a solid winter warmer.

Bottle. Pours reddish-brown with a medium tan head. Spiced aroma with hints of caramel, prunes/raisins and roasted malts. Sweet and heavily spiced flavor with notes of caramel, dark fruits, roasted malts and light orange hoppiness. Some alcohol and hop bitterness in the finish.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Thanks to Jason B for sharing this. Dark brown color with a thin beige head. Slight hop presence but the malts dominate here. Good bit of dried fruits and brown sugar happening here.
