Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with a light touch of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits, leading to a dry finish where the fruity note carries thru. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Beautiful cloudy amber color; thick head. Aroma of milk chocolate, malt, hops, light sweet wood. Smooth mouthfeel, good malt and caramel flavor, with a touch of vanilla and a good hopping, both in strength and quality. Very good.

brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
A: This beer pours amber, maybe copper, in color with a surprisingly large khaki colored head. S: Toffee, molasses, and brown sugar on the nose, making up most of the bouquet. A pretty decent dark fruit character, with raisins and plums, and definitely a strong alcohol aroma. A bit of toasted bread is there as well. Not bad, but the aromas are all kind of "flat" and boring. T: Sweet is mostly how the beer tastes. There is not a big emphasis on the heavy caramel flavors that I expect from an old ale. Some decent bread and brown sugar flavor, maybe some minimal fruit notes. M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation. D: This was a decent enough of beer, but sort of boring and one note. Not the rich and deep flavors I associate with an old ale.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber colour. The aroma is quite sweet with toasted malt and some chocolate. Very sweet caramel, dark fruits, some chooclate and bit of spice. Too sweet.
