3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A sipper for sure. Interesting traditional? ale not as malty as the British old ales I have had. Let’s cook with the second half of the bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into snifter, Bottle #395/1151; no bottle date, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep reddish orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, toast, golden raisin, plum, apple, pear, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, light pepper, herbal, brown bread, light leather, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, malt, oak, and earthy mushroom notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, golden raisin, plum, pear, apple, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, light bourbon, brown bread, herbal, light leather, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, golden raisin, plum, pear, apple, toffee, vanilla, oak, clove, light bourbon, brown bread, light leather, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt, yeast ester, earthy mushroom, and bourbon barrel flavors; with a great malt/barrel/yeast ester flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent BA old ale style. All around great complexity and balance of malt, yeast ester, and bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
