3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Jack Rose. Clear deep brown pour with reddish highlights. Medium tan foam. Weaker retention. Vinegar, odd cherry nose. Dark cherry attempt. Taste is papery, bitter, dark cherry. Okay. Lactic palate, mild chocolate density. Not too bad. Wouldn’t call it Old Ale though. More Belgian Strong.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap - @ RHP. Pours cloudy chocolate with fizzy cola-like white head. Caramel, malt, chocolate, and roasted nuts on the nose. Tastes is all malty toasty with hints of nuts, light bitter notes, finishes dry and tingly. Medium bodied, long finish. Ok, if not exceptionally memorable. Definitely an old ale. Keep experimenting local boys!!!

This one was decent. Nice body. Flavor was pretty malt forward. Not much hop bitterness. Tasted good, but nothing remarkable.
