3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. 2015 vintage. A murky brown beer, almost flat and headless. Some off-white bubbles though. Heavy malt aroma with prunes, oxidation, some berries and quite evident traces of hops. Toffee, some roasted malts and chocolate, a nice hoppy bitterness, raisins, some prunes and brown sugar. Full body and very smooth on the palate, with little carbonation. Some warmth. Hints of licorice in the finish, as well as all the other goodness found in the initial flavor. An intense beer, but sure nice. 160102

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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
