4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. 2013 vintage. Pours dark chestnut, almost murky brown, with a fairly prominent off-white head. Aroma is lots of bourbon, toffee, fig, sweet candied fruits. Flavor is bourbon, very sweet fruits, fig, raisin. Body is fairly effervescent for such a strong beer, but it’s welcome and actually really nice. Slightly bitter finish which makes it better. Fantastic beer.

finally get to try this one. The age ddid it well. Doesn’t taste oxidized at all. Nice complex molasses flavor profile. Good bourbon flavors, tasty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a beautiful clear dark amber. Minimal to no head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of cotton candy toffee caramel corn subtle amount of booze. Starts malty sweet then followed by hints of burnt sugar and bourbon notes. The vanilla flavors from the barrel aging are prominent and add to the beer. Mouthfeel is medium plus. Overall excellent dessert beer

Yummy! The barrel aging takes Old Stock Ale up a couple of noches and it’s really delicious. At at $20 a bottle you question the value but without a doubt I will purchase another on payday. Well worth the price and as I said earlier, yummy!

Bottle. Pours hazy brown with red hues and off-white head. Aroma prunes, figs, bourbon, vanilla, touch of wood, brown sugar. Taste medium to full bodied, rich, great bourbon taste-nothing overly but a really nice touch, medium carbonation. Overall, very nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 2013 label. Pours a cloudy and very dark brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is extremely rich and satisfying with old wood and hints of whiskey overlaying a bit of caramel. Taste has some sweet hints of caramel and butterscotch, and has a smooth woody finish. I feel like I should be drinking this in an old bar with lots of dark wood and dim lighting.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2013 label (January 2015 release) 500ml bottle. Flat, murky brown pour. Aroma is bourbon, touch of sweet dark fruit. Taste is caramel, vanilla, bourbon. Malty. Slightly boozy but very easy to drink. Other than the price, $23 for a 500ml, I have nothing to complain about.
