3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An interesting beer. Pours a murky caramel color with a low tan head the dissipates within 5 mins. A lot of sediment in the glass. Good lacing and retention. Aroma is earthy, woodsy with damp basement and oxidation. Complex and slightly off-putting because of the oxidation. Taste is fruity with light caramel. Would guess that the hops are "Fuggles and lots of them to give beer such an earthy bitterness. A slightly metallic finish. Mouthfeel is watery and soft. An interesting beer. It seems to be a good representative of the historic British Old Ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter. Pours a dark reddish brown with thick head and some lacing. Aroma is bread, dough, caramel, malts, nuts, wood, earth. The taste is similar. Thick body, moderate carbonation. Heavy yeasts present. Overall not a bad old ale. Finish is earth and spice...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jacksonville, Fl - Grassroots Natural Market - 12 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange to brown with a tight off-white colored head. Aroma has some dates, prunes and molasses. Flavor has a slight funk to it, reminiscent of ripening fruit. Redeems itself somewhat with some sweet molasses, brown sugar and dates- but just does not have that warming quality that I look for in an old ale. Mouthfeel is a tad thin for the style. Approaching decent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy amber-brown with substantial yeast presence and a small white head. Aroma is leather and heavy malts. Taste is sweet molasses, carob, and malts malts malts. The malts become the star at the finish. Definitely an "English style" old ale that should be drunk in the dusty old manor with a dusty old book.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can. Pours a heavily clouded deep amber with TONS of floaties. Aromas of cigarette butts, tobacco, worn leather. Nice. Taste is perhaps the best example of cigarette butts Iíve ever had. Very resinous tobacco (although not smoked), like if you were eating a cigarette. A hint of spice. Nice carbonation. Finishes semi-sweet with a lasting tobacco note. Very damn good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can:   Deep dark caramel, thin foamy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Super strong whole wheat brady
aroma.   Also nutty, and a touch of Starburst like candyish fruity notes.   Odd...   Heavy breadiness, whole
wheat, a little nutty, some pale roast perhaps, but not as fruity as the nose hinted (ever so slightly).   Needs more
sweetness is the first thing to cross my mind.   Very bready without being too sweet, meh...   Body and mouthfeel
are moderate.   Similar finish, but perhaps with a bit of grape popcicle stick mixed in.   Interesting nose, but
didnít pan out on the tongue.   Thanks Bill!

12oz can poured into glass. While I found this beer slightly above average there wasnít anything that wowed me. Nice balance between hops and malts but nothing really stood out to me.
