Deep amber with a thin ring of foam. Toffee malt aroma and just a hint of dark fruits. Body is much lighter than anticipated leaving a thin mouthfeel. Sweet malts lack real depth although there are some raisin notes. Dry Dock website has this at 6.9% which is hard to notice.

Not sure what’s up here. Murky, funky aroma, very nutty, odd hop profile, hint of alcohol on the finish is nice. Has that funky tap line taste, at tasting room. I love old ales, will rerate.

This beer is a lot like their poor Richard. It is , however, sweeter. I am not sure I like it that way.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery in Aurora, CO. Pours a cloudy, darker brown colored body with a finger-width, dense, creamy and frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is slightly malty sweet with some dark fruits. A bit of a breadiness with a light brown sugar and a touch of molasses. Some cherry-raisin, prune, and a touch of earth. Flavor is similar. Molasses stands out a bit more with a good amount of bready, medium sweet malts with some caramel cookies and a light chocolate. A moderate dark fruit note with more raisin than cherry-raisin and some prunes. A light toast towards the end with a bit of a tobacco and brown sugar before this finishes smooth and slightly dry with a light bitterness and chewy sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, I was a fan of this. Very smooth and soft malts with a nice dark fruitiness that finishes dry, but sweet and balanced. Good beer.
