Bottle at home. Dark brown pour, foamy off-white head. Aroma of licorice, spicy malts and a bit yeasty. Flavor is spicy bitter malts, quite British and a bit sticky sugars. Decent balance, but a bit boring.

Pours a dark ruby color into snifter. Dark plum, raisins, and roastiness in the nose. Complex flavor with dark fruits, tart apple, and a sharp bitterness that fades into a sweetness. Lingering roastiness. Wonderful beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Amber Ruby pour with minimal head. Aroma was mild malt and subtle vinous fruitiness. Flavor was exactly how it smelled. Body a little thin. Should have had more ABV punch to make this note worthy. At $14 a six not worth it. See if you can score a single bottle.

A nice dark ale. Pours really black with tan head. Recently had Old Tom and have to admit, Old Pec isnít as good. Still a quality ale. Would love to try it on tap one day.

Birra dal gusto complesso e insolito, ma a mio parere non straordinaria. Prevale un carattere vinoso, con sfumature fruttate, di frutta scura e bacche, che si fondono con una complessiva dolcezza, ampliata da un diffuso sentore di banana. Vale la pena assaggiarla.

Pour is clear ruby with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor of banana, oak, prunes, brown sugar, and roasted malt. A bit of hoppiness on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass
A - Pours a dark russet brown, with a foamy tan head
S - Oxidized malts, husky grain, light roasted malts, old molasses. The yeast starts coming out as it warms yielding fruit bread dough, prunes, over-ripened berries, wheat germ,
T - Creamy and bready sweetness, muted fruit with a sharp edge. English malts, burnt caramel, tea tannins, and hints of leafy green hops. Plums, berries, thin molasses, very fruity with dark bread malts and bitter tannins rounding out the finish with roasted malts lingering.
M - Straight up medium body with low to medium carbonation, lightly textured with a wet middle and a tannin dry finish.
No doubt this is brewed in England. A very traditional tasting ale with some minor oxidation flaws. But itís to be expected from an import. Nice fruit notes with some hops still hanging in there. The yeast really shows up and adds a bready doughy character. Would love to have this on cask in England.
