Poured a dark amber brown color with aromas of oak, malt, light dark fruit, and some light roast. Flavors are the same with malt, earth, light cardboard, oak, vanilla and dark fruit solid and enjoyable.

Bottle, bow I want to like old ales but too bad, sharp and light. Some tart bj there which throws the balance way off

Heavy dark brown with a sticky light beige head. Sweet big aroma with oak and dark sticky sweet malt and plum. Nice big flavor with barrel aged raisin and smooth dark malt. Delightful and balanced and drinkable and really tasty

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - DEC 22, 2014
500ml bottle, wax-capped but still fairly easy to open. Nose of richly sweet, dark malts, prominent oak, dried fruits, brown sugar, jam and a tart, cherryish fruitiness in the background. Deep, dark brown in color, nearly black, with a trace of sediment left behind in the bottle and a fading, light tan head. Flavor profile is mildly tart, oaky, sweet and fruity, lightly tannic and winey with suggestions of carob, raisin, dark bread and red grape, and finishing with a drying, warming sensation. Full and lightly acidic on the palate with a moderate degree of effervescence and a large body. Very nicely rendered Old Ale.

JBPortland (1490) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2014
500ml bottle pours murky brown red with small head. Nose is dried dark fruits, root beer, leather, berry, dusty cocoa, some light booze spice and subtle woody notes. Taste is nice with all the aspects of the nose and a harmonius fruity light tartness, some tootsie roll, bitter cocoa dust, caramel, leather. Finish is light tartness with rounded light boozy dark fruit, spice, caramel, faint bourbon. Fun and tasty bottle!

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2014
16.9 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s Appearance: finger of tan head, dark brown color, opaque. Aroma: libht boooze, fruit, earthy, light funkiness, oak. Palate: medium body, thin texture, light alcoholic warming and texture, average to lively carbonation. Taste: sweet fruit into awesome oakiness that balances out the fruitiness and keeps it from going into tartness. Overall, amazing balance, very unique balance, very interesting beer. Paired well with a top sirloin dinner. Very good.

maekchu (3509) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Thanks to mike12da. Rich chocolate nose, with some dark fruit. Dark translucent brown color. Sourish initial, raisins and light berries, sugary in mid palate, gentle pruney finish. Medium body. Slgitly tart. Pleasant but a bit weak overall. Some mix of good flavors that don’t quite come together.
