Poires, pommes, biscuit graham avec une portion surie comme une old stock. Le corps est bien charpenté, l’amertume docile, buvabilité honnête. J’aime bien ce genre ale anglaise/old stock.

Bottle. Rock candy, caramel malt, hay and light alcohol aroma. Copper with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt, hay, and light alcohol flavor. Very nice.

I’m going to attempt to age the few bottles I have left. It’s so hard! The complexity and palate is phenomenal.

Pours copper with a beige head. Nutty, bready, caramel nose that follows along the same lines in the flavor. The caramel is a nice foundation, with some oak, full bodied, finishes a bit yeasty with a banana note I didn’t like as much.

Smells nice and rich and malty with tons of complexity. The taste on the other hand is cloyingly sweet with some toffee and bread notes. Man is this sweet.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of toasted malts, cocoa, and raisins. Pours a blackish-brown with a mostly diminishing off-white head and spotty lacing. The taste is a roasty sweetness. Roasted malts, dark fruit, raisins, biscuit, with a touch of cocoa. A biscuity/grainy aftertaste pervails. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Nice combination of round yet crisp mouthfeel. I liked it. Overall, this is a Goldy Locks brew, not too sweet and not too tart, but just…. Would drink again.
