Cloudy reddish with a viscous foam that melts to a film. Nice caramel, vanilla, malty aroma. Taste is sweet malty caramel. Some coffee? Bitter finish. More complex than I can describe. Evolves as it warms. Great experience.
More beer please...

Bottle from the Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Pours deep amber with a thin off white head. Aroma of pear drop and alcohol. The taste starts sweet with banana, caramel, pear drop, light spice, vanilla and some woody notes. Warming alcohol. Very tasty.

Tap. Insanely beautiful lacing. Faint nose of lightly sweet nose. Full body. Tastes of spices -- almost a Christmas ale with nutmeg, allspice. Touch of orange. ABV not overwhelming in taste profile.

Nose is intense plum/prune/vinous/synthetic cherry. Flavor is same... Oddly fruity for the style with caramelized/burnt sugar in background. Caramel cough syrup? Wtf

It has a decent body with nice fruits and a particularly grape skin flavor to it. The bitter hops arrive toward the finish and linger a while. It's similar to North Coast's Old Stock Ale, but to me it's not quite as good.

On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Poured a hazy dark amber with a cream head. Taste of caramel malts, biscuit, slight oak, with a boozy finish. Lively carbonation, full molasses body. Final thoughts: My Grandpa was a curmudgeon too...crusty old bastard
