COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old Ale is a blend of Imperial Stout aged eleven-months in oak bourbon barrels, and our malty Scotch Ale. This black beer has an intense aroma of roasted malt with pronounced vanilla and toasted coconut notes from wood aging. The flavor is smooth and bittersweet, with hints of caramel, toffee, and mocha. This full-bodied beer is filled with deep, rich and warming flavors.

Growler (which are sick btw). Pours deep black, tan head with good retention, nice fine lacy patterns. Has a mellow chocolate & coffee aroma which are very strong on the flavor. Nice and creamy, medium body with high mouthfeel, low carbonation.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a tan smear for head. Aromas of dark, lightly smokey, malt, vanilla and wood. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. First impression was anise. Then some dark roast malt, with oak, vanilla and perhaps coffee. Not extraordinarily complex, but a very good drink indeed.
