Disappointing. Bottle. Almost no aroma. Deep brown old ale colour with almost no head. Thin malty flavour, Thin biscuity finish.

Tap @ The BeerMongers during Brewpublic’s Killer Beers of Central Oregon event... Poured clear amber/reddish with an off-white head. Nose had some diacetyl, I would blame the lines but I know The BeerMongers keep them clean. Malty, sweet biscuits, with some yeast esters and some popcorn characters in the finish.

Bottle from Belmont Station. Colour... dark brown with a massive, off-white head. Nose... sweetly malty with hints of toffee. Palate... burnt malt, stone fruits and boiled sweets with notes of dates, golden raisins and dried apricots all trailing off to a delightfully malty finish with a bit o’ booziness. I think I’ve found my new "go to" winter ale!

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2011
A remarkably English brew. Roust malts and an estery chocolate aroma. Tingly and sweet fruit fades to dry chocolate before a good bitterness washes back over the tongue. Boozy warmth stays with you long after it’s done.
