Bottle via trade. Nose of wood and vanilla. A slightly boozey note as well. Moderate chocolate. A slight peppery phenol character too. Taste has an initially slightly tart character that is cherry like, almost like a Flanders but subtle. Chocokate is moderate to low in flavor. A medium light mouthfeel. Slightly chewy and raisiny. Overall am interesting old ale but not one I would necessarily buy a lot of or seek out.

Pours dark brown with eggshell head. Aroma is subtle chocolate, tootsie roll, sourness but seems off. Taste is slightly sweet chocolate, dark fruit, tart/sourness dominating the backend. Thin mouthfeel. Got better with some air, reminded me of a porter I brewed once that was infected, but I’m sure thats what they were going for here. Expected more
