Murky mahogany with a pale head. Has kind of a fruitcake thing going on, which is better than it sounds. Dark fruits, brown sugar, maybe even a hint of rum.

My 2012 bottle shared at Hunahpu’s Day. Dark brown pour with translucent edges. Aroma is chocolate roast and slightly acidic. Taste is light molasses with an underlying wine like character. Not as full bodied also there representations of the style. Very drinkable for the ABV which is exceptionally well hidden.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. This was one of the best beers we enjoyed at the brewery. I purchased two 22 oz bottles for the annual meeting at the Hyatt. The old ale poured a dark brown with a light brown head that lasted throughout the beer with nice lacing. The aromas were complex with sweet barley, toffee, caramel and some alcohol. The friend that was drinking with me had two of these they were so good. The flavor starts with dark fruits and chocolate at the end. The ale had average carbonation and the finish was enjoyable. Take a swallow and let it roll around in your mouth. This is why you taste beer from craft brewers. They give their best every time.

Tap at pub. Dark brown/red brew with a light tan head that lasts for ages. I can't get much of an aroma out of it...maybe a hint of honey? Thick and creamy, a little sweet, a little bitter. Not a bad brew at all.
