4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy ruby/amber with a thin off white head. Plummy and fruity nose with belgian dark ale tones and a little cherry and belgian sugar and English old ale sweetness. Tasty flavor with just a hint more carbonation than it needs, with loads of date/plum/raisin, a hint of cherry, belgian dark candy sugar, English dark malt, belgian dark malt, and a slightly boozy raisiny finish. Nice.

Poured into an English pint glass. Dark cola brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is quite bready with some molasses and dark fruit. Flavor is sweet and malty with a nice earthy character, some dark fruit notes, and a mildly bitter finish with earthy hops. Medium to full bodied with some stickiness and a long finish. Overall a nice old ale that is accentuated by some increased hop usage.

Once again, I could select adjective that are imperfect for describing this tasty brew were the hour not so late and the bottle not so empty.

Bottle. Dark amber colour with a small diminishing head. The aroma has notes of caramel, light hops, a nutty side. The flavour is sweet with a good caramel flavour, not a strong finish. Good without being exciting.

A great ale, very unique and complex. Pours a beautiful deep red with a thick tan frothy head. Smells of cherries, vanilla, coffee and nuts. Taste has vanilla upfront, followed by cinnamon and pecans, and brandy. Some carmelized sugar and a bit of fruitiness in the finish. Had in the bottle, unaged.
