Bottle from kegs and barrels. Pours a deep mahogany with a thick tan head. The aromas are black currant, molasses, dark fruits. The mouthfeel is dry, sticky and bitter with a slightly heavy body and low carbonation. This is a very nice beer! Cheers!

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. I’m 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.

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.

Tastes like the Old Stock Ale from the North Coast Brewery. The flavor is comparable to a barley wine. Very malty. The beer pours a cloudy amber with a whitish brown head. This beer is very boozy. Basically if you’ve had an old ale before, you’ve had this beer. Nothing amazing.

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.
