3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown semi-transparent body with some head and some lacing. Aroma of cocoa and hops, though not a prominent aroma. Taste is quite bitter and roast. A bit unusual for an old ale- certainly not a traditional british style old ale anyway. Abv well masked. Enjoyable but nothing too interesting here really.

Light copper point into snifter. Creamy off white head. Good balance of caramel maltiness with citrus and pine notes. A winter IPA, could use a higher ABV.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a clear copper color with a thick creamy off white head that leaves lots of lacing. the aroma is floral hops and bread. you can also pick up some mild spices but they are more prevalent in the taste. the taste also consists of floral hops. there is quite a bit of bitterness but not overpowering. i would never guess this beer is 7% abv because it is such an easy drinker.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pour is a caramel amber, clear with a nice off white head. Smell is spicy piney hops and a nice roasted caramel presence. Taste is similar, kind of like a malty IPA. Good balance of malt and hops, kind of light in strength for an old ale, which would make me question aging it as the description suggests. But over all a nice peppy winter ale that isn't drowning in nutmeg or cinnamon.
