3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Dark malts, caramel and light bourbon notes. Very dark brown with a light brown head. Dark toasted malts, booze, light yeasty sweetness and a long fruity ester finish. Vanilla and dark fruit are there, but the sweet booze is a put off for me.

Bottle thanks to bleeng at the May tasting. Pours a dark ruby with a paperthin off white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is cinnamon and hairspray. Alcohol upfront with a smoke vanilla flavor. A decent old ale from Straight to Ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a plastic mini-growler, thanks to brew3crew for sharing. Mildly hazy brown color. Not really any head. Bubbles around the edge of the surface, thatís it. Woody, vanilla, bourbon-y nose. Some earthy, herbal, tobacco notes. Some light dark fruit. Bigger body, pretty much flat no carbonation. Sweeter taste, some chocolate in the flavor. Light molasses, caramel malts, little roast. Nice, rich flavor. Good stuff!
