2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft pours brown with red hues and an off white head. Aroma is dried fruit, cherry, a good bit of alcohol, caramel, and slight spices. Taste is belgian spices, fruit, caramel, and a strong solvent like alcohol burn. Sweet finish and medium body. Judging by other reviews, maybe I just got a bad batch. The Alcohol was too sharp.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a mostly clear, amber-brown with a short, quickly dissipating brown-khaki head. Root beer hard candy and horehound hard candy aroma. Thereís quite a bit of alcohol invading the olfactory. Sticky, mildly thick mouthfeel. Sweet nuttiness, brown hard candy, and ample alcohol. When the alcohol gets expressed, the flavor and experience become more like bourbon.

This Old Ale is "alive" with witchís brew bubbles percolating in the glass to the very last drop. I have no problem with any aspect of this recipe, finished product or even the chemistry professor doing lab work label pic. I canít fault itís uniqueness like too many picky [thy ass] people out there. Maybe it matches my character: Strong, Rich, Bold, Radioactive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/29/14. Snow day! 22oz bottle from Beachís in Fort Walton Beach. Dark amber pour with basically no head, barely a small khaki. Booze in the aroma, a touch of acetone, straight up whiskey, oxidation, sweet dark fruits, and maltiness. Rich sweet flavor up front, some whiskey, a bit of sourness, actually, with caramel and fruitiness, oxidation. Meh.

On tap. Nearly opaque deep brown with a lasting ring of bubbles. Aromas of cola, oak, vanilla, chocolate and whiskey. Taste has vanilla, oak, whiskey and peppery green herb. Heavy body is thinned by the slightly overpowering whiskey and abv presence. Has a nice balance and smooth, medium carbonation.
