3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-12-03. Viscous black body, near headless. 3+ Strong flavour of alcohol and whiskey is a bit off-putting. Nice malty base but the alcohol and whiskey really dominates the flavour profile. Aroma is similar, alcohol, whiskey, light barrel notes. 6+ Smooth medium bodied is accompanied by a mild alcohol burn throughout. Solid, its a bit disappointing. Shows potential but ends up being too rough for me to handle. Cask at Cole’s, Buffalo

[3501-20101203] Cask. Roasted wooden chocolate aroma. Black body with quick off-white bubbles. Boozy bandaid whiskey flavour has wood roast and a lingering sweet aftertaste. Full body is quite boozy. Wow, interesting, and surprisingly drinkable.

cask @ Coles, Buffalo, NY. Dark brown/black pour. Peaty, smoke, scotch, wood notes along with rich roasted maltiness. Not so much boozy at 10%. Fuller mouthfeel thats packed with flavor. A real treat

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark cloudy brown. Wow. Mild sweet aroma with scotch-like sweetness ans a whiff smoke. Taste is bigger than expected with a nutty-toffee sweetness, and some gorgeously balanced peaty-smoky scotch barrel flavor. Perhaps the best OD overall?

This is a very nice ale--I really question whether it’s worth the money, though. The whiskey barely comes through and it’s otherwise a very solid, traditional old ale.

Cask Stillage from the Cellar at the Rake, Southwark 02/08/2010 (Thanks Chris O)
Big whisky aroma. Black very strong in alcohol and smooth on the palate with a hint of dryness and bitterness in a coffee roast finish.
