3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, toffee, grains with mild fruity notes. Taste same as aroma with some mild bitterness. Palate is a medium body. moderate carbonation. Finish is caramel malt, grains, some mild toffee notes and fruity with some bitterness on the end foe balance. This brew seems a bit lacking for an old ale. Overall it still not too bad, a good brew.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: dark amber, with a short, thin beige head. Aroma: blast of caramel malts, molasses, some nuts, and booze. Taste: burnt sugar (not in a good way), molasses, caramel, astringent alcohol. Finish: overly burny booze, lingering sweet malts. Notes: Not as good as I’d hoped. Overly burnt and boozy for such a relatively low alcohol content. Low rating could partially be blamed on palate fatigue (Beer, Bourbon, BBQ Fest, Timonium, MD, 2014).

Pours deep mahogany brown with little head. The aroma is like apple butter; fruity and spicy, with some caramel malt. Sweet, rich flavor. Strong in the finish. A lot carbonation in the body. This was pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nutty, caramel and dark fruit on the aroma. Appearance is brown and hazy. Off white head with poor head retention. Malt forward with a dark caramel character of plums with a light chocolate flavor. Fruity esters are present. Mouthfeel is medium-high. Carbonation is medium low. Alcohol warmth is evident. Overall it's a decent old ale that needs more time to develop more complex flavors and aromas.
