Based on a traditional British beer style called stock or old ale, the beer is made big for aging. This would be the beer families would pull out to impress guests in years past. Some breweries also use it to blend with lighter strength beers. It’s a malt forward beer with moderate hop bitterness. Big sipper at 10.1%.

Tap at University of Beer. Pours a very dark ruby with a ceamy beige head. Aroma is rather plummy with some dark malt that has chocolate notes. Med + body. Flavor is rather pitted fruit and I think the malt has a bit of chocolate. Plum seems to be the fruit. Heat, but only in the gullet. Very nice.

On tap at Beer Revolution. The paper that the brewer handed out for this one listed it at 11.4%. It pours a dark ruby red color with a khaki head. The aroma is cherry, caramel and light herbal hops. The flavor is strong malty sweetness with toffee, caramel, lots of cherry and berry fruit. Good spicy, bitter potent hop profile.

On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours reddish brown with a nice beige head and a roasty chocolate aroma. Tehreis a toasted treacle flavor with a dry finish. I think this one needs to age at bit to attain maximum flavor, but it’s still pretty good.
