Bottle cheers to Joel for the PBS tasting. Murky brown pour with a small, sticky khaki head. Nose shows a heap of powdered chocolate and heavy prunes. A touch of smoke comes through giving it a meaty characteristic. Nice. Taste is that smoky, powdery chocolate with some heavy prune and sultana notes. Dark fruits and dry chocolate at the forefront with some underlying brown sugars and vanilla behind it all. Damn balanced and the booze is hidden well giving away only a touch of heat right at the finish. Very good stuff

22oz bottle. Clear amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, fruity yeast esters, bread dough and alcohol. Flavor is strong toffee, bitter hops, alcohol warming and light roast. Medium body with a soft mouth feel. Nice beer, the bitterness balances out the malt sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep glowing gold. Light smells malty. Carmel sweet taste. It bounces between malty sweet and hoppy bitter. The mouth feel is definitely sticky and a bit syrupy in feel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Clear amber with beige head
Aroma: Peaty and malty
Taste: Sweet malty body similar to double bock. Iím getting a fair amount of smokiness. The finish has a noticeable hoppy kick.
Overall: An interesting bock-pale ale hybrid that is easy drinking but nothing extraordinary in terms of complexity.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy pour of dark brown under a creamy off-white head.
Aroma of toffee and molasses.
The flavor is sweet on the front with some moderate hop bitterness building into the finish.
Decent Old Ale, but not overly complex.
