COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of three copper ales. One aged in oak barrels for 60 days. Another brewed with LOTS of dark caramel roasted malts, and one brewed with a blend of sweet and bitter orange peels and star anise. Lots of complexity. Will age well.

12 oz bottle from the Brick Mason series. This one pours a cloudy, burnt orange color with just a reddish hue and topped by a thick head of off white foam that slowly settles to a thin film and leaving a sudsy wash across the glass. The aroma shows a good amount of depth in the malt base with darkly roasted caramel, brown sugar, toasted oak, vanilla, and sweet and bitter orange peel. There is not much in the way of hops to balance out the sweetness. The flavor follows suit with bitter and sweet oranges showing strong along with a touch of star anise spice and licorice followed by toasted oak, vanilla, and burnt caramel malt sweetness. The added anise spice tries to give some balance from the malt sweetness. Nearly full bodied on the palate with moderate carbonation that leads to a lengthy, sweet and slightly warming finish. There is lots of depth and complexity to this one, but I was hoping for a drier finish to help keep the residual sugars at bay. Still tasty stuff.

12oz bottle pours a murky amber with some very thick, frothy, white head. Nose has a ton of malt and a ton of caramel, dried orange peel, some booze, some cream soda, some red rope licorice. Flavor has a fairly heavy amount of cherry, is it possible infection? Plenty of raisin too, some black peppercorn, some caramel, a little dried apple slices, some orange too. Full, sticky, spicy finish.

hockeybeerguy (1507) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Rcvd in trade. Consumed April 5, 2013. The appearance is a brown/slightly dark orange body around the sides of the glass with a three finger foamy off-white head that rises and falls fairly quickly, clingy spider web lacing graces the sides The smell is basically of booze, cherry and vanilla, and just a little bit of oak coming through as the beer warms. The taste is sweet and tart through previously mentioned flavors, slight lingering graininess, a bit of toffee comes out as the beer warms, tart aftertaste and a dry finish. The palate is about a medium, comes across semi-sessionable, and is adequately carbonated. Overall, well, Iím not an old ale expert or fan, but it just seemed a bit tart than other old ales Iíve had. Would I have this again, hmmm .... unsure because Iíd say this is a bit different than other old ales of what Iíve had.
