1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
This is my first "Old Ale" style.
A: Head-What was there goes away fast. Color-Looks like well preserved antique cherry furniture.
S: Sweet, real sweet, like your first girlfriend. Caramello is JEALOUS! I sense a little spicey but I wouldnít call it sassy.
T: I donít taste two scoops of raisens, but maybe store-brand dosage. Not a lot of bite from the alcohol. A tad bitter, not like your mother in law but possibly your friendís.
MF: Medium of the road on all accounts. Kind of slid down like an upside-down go-kart.
Overall: Iíve had this style before Iím pretty sure, but I donít remember when since I donít review EVERY beer I drink. I donít find it overly complicated, but Iím new to this style. I like it for sure, however its just too new to make a strong statement about it.

Nice yellow head and chocolate brown colour. There is little chocolate and peanuts in the aroma.

Cloudy with a light silk head that seemed to "dance" the entire time. Bread like smell to and a very dry fruit taste to it. Overall taste is young but seems promising for perfection if aged

I really liked this beer although might be biased because I grew up in Fort Bragg! Deep amber body, oak flavors, very smooth and drinkable.

Dark amber colored with a thin head. Smells of dark fruits, caramel, vanilla and alcohol. The taste is dominated by dark fruits, caramel and alcohol.

Sweet candy caramel nose. Fantastic spice foundation! Clove, nutmeg and cinnamon. Pumpkin pie and banana bread all in one beer. Great toasted malts and just the right hint of hops. Sweet, but in an earthy satisfying way. Rich, earthy warming finish. What a beer!

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A good barley wine with grainy/cerealy aroma. As you hold it up to the light, the body turns ruby red with low cloudiness. The flavor is sweet and tasting of cognac with a long finish. This beer does a great job of hiding it’s high alcohol content. The palate is very oily full bodied with light taste of alcohol. Great job for a barley wine.

Surprising be. Heaviest alcohol content in a beer Iíve ever had. Great flavor, lots of personality for a domestic ale.

This was a great beer. Reminded me of the Belgian Trappist stuff. Nice alcohol content and very smooth.
