3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown opaque pour. Couple fingers of a creamy tan head. Some lacing. Aroma is sweet malt unless some dark fruit and a hint of the earthy hops used. Very bready almost woody taste. Some roastiness. Caramel. Still get some of that dark fruit, maybe plum, flavor. Earthy hop finish.

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.
