500ml bottle, head fizzle quickly. Smells of alcohol and oak and funk and dark chocolate. Taste is very rustic and oaky with a tart funk, almost like tasting leather, and a sweetness reminiscent of burnt caramel ever so slightly. Very interesting beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Une bouteille chez El Bait Shop: Des épices, des tannins, des petits fruits pales provenant des malts et de la fermentation. Belle chaleur d’alcool, belle complexité des sucres mais un peu difficile à terminer.

500 mL bottle, huge thanks to Brett for sharing! Lightly thin plum colored pour, small fizzy off-white head. Nose and flavor are quite pleasant and definitively old ale, with leather, tobacco, plum, hints of warming spice, and molasses. Light tartness, medium body. A solid US interpretation; good, and true.

500 ml bottle from the Party Source at home. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small, fizzy, disappearing beige head. The aroma has oak, some sweetness, and a hint of tart fruit, caramel and some spices. The flavor has caramel, tootsie rolls, spices, figs and dates, some chocolate,and a big oak character, doesn’t do the best job hiding the abv, in fact it is a little boozy, still I think it is an interesting enough beer.

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

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 Bottle. Deep murky brown pour with an off white head. Rich dark fruit and oaky. Hint of sour in spots. Nice brew.

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
