Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2007
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured clear dark reddish brown color with full light brown head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate aroma of caramel, nuts and troasted malt. Medium body with sticky texture. Medium bittersweet balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a large tan head over a deep brown body. Aroma of coffee, caramel, toffee, and leather. Taste is coffee, chocolate, spice, nutshells and a touch sour (maybe?). Creamy bubbles, and a dry finish.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours dark brown with a khaki head. The aroma is dark, roasted malts. The flavor is coffee with some roasted malts as well as some burnt malt. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Pailhead (4633) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, molasses, coffee, roast, and a touch of smoke. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights around the edges of the glass. It has a small beige head that quickly fades to a soapy ring. There’s is some dotted lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate and molasses. There is some fruitiness in the middle. The finish has light-moderate anise, roasted coffee, citrus hops, and a touch of alcohol. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, it really seems like more of an Imperial Stout than an Old Ale. Regardless of what style it is, it’s pretty tasty.
