This is a good beer and I like it more aged. The taste has a strong malt character and a gummy sourness at the end. Let it sit.

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 Three Floyd’s Brewpub. I think my palate was pretty much gone at this point, but it tasted a little thin and fizzy. Will try again with a fresh palate.

Bottled 04/13/12; Vibrant amber to copper pour with a smallish, late forming very light khaki head leaving ecclectic spotted lace; light fruit, oak, and alcohol notes dance over pudding, toffee, and marshmallow, some toast, light smooth leather, and charred oak are introduced in the taste and finish out the medium, somewhat creamy ml mouth, soft heat; complex, yet restrained and welcoming

Excelente old ale americana, perfeita pra arrebatar o frio paulistano! Cor vermelho-âmbar, licorosa, pouca formação de espuma. Aroma de conhaque envelhecido em carvalho, intenso. Na boca, desce aveludada com ótimo corpo, com predomínio da forte carga de malte, mantendo o dulçor acentuado da breja. Amargor bem balanceado, com álcool bem inserido, aquecendo o final. Excelente breja!

Quite dry and sweet - caramel, biscuit and raisins from the malt. What stands out is certainly the ease with which it goes down given its strength. I’ve had plenty of imperial stouts at this ABV and you feel them in your throat. This is subtle!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy red pour. Thin white head. Nose is of floral pears and apples in oak. Taste is round, hiding a bit of tartness from the straight oak aging. Finish is long and on the side of the tongue continuing on the sweet tart side of things. This is an a gratifying sipper.

Sweeter than I had inticipated but also very good for how lightly it is carbonated.
