Bottle shared by Malrubius at tasting at my house. Pours cloudy amber brown with off white head. Nose and taste of sticky sweet caramel buns, citrus, toffee, sweet malt and resin. Sticky sweet on the palate. More like a hoppy barleywine than an old ale. Medium body.

On tap at Hay Merchant. Pours a clear amber with small beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a bready malt and faint floral hop. Medium mouthfeel with a rich malt with caramel and chocolate flavor. Easy to drink a good old ale from Eel River.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured amber with a thick head. Fruity nose. Smooth entry with a soft , mildly carbonated palate followed by a caramel, maple syrup, and hoppy finish. The strength of this beer hit me fast but the alcohol presence is subtle.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy copper brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was mild floral and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a deep copper with an ample tan head. Aromas of caramel, raisin and clove. Up front sweetness gives way to hoppy finish. Minimal carbonation and lacing. Pleasing overall, but I was laboring by the end of the bottle.
