3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a lavishly clear and dark reddish brown/brick hue. A creamy light tan head sits atop and clings to the glass as it descends. Aroma is subtly fruity and sweet with a sour alcohol note. Slight metallic aroma (import) like a grip of old coins. Muddy toffee notes open to the nose as the ale warms. An old earthy dustiness rounds out this beer. The flavor is bighty on the palate. Hints of vanilla and caramel dominate the middle. Finishes somewhat bitter, and mildly alcoholic, with lingering pleasant sour pear and grape nuts. Light/medium moutfeel. "Uncle B’s, A little rusty and dusty."

500ml bottle from corner shop. Mid-brown to dark brown, somewhat translucent. Light aroma of liquorice and some chocolate malt. Sweet at first, deftly turning bitter until the end. Bitter coffee notes in the aftertaste. Good enough but not a patch on the cask version.

Rated from old notes. Pours frothy and creamy into the glass. Lightly carbonated. Distinctive sweet caramel taste with a hint of nuts. Well balanced. A good, hearty English ale.

500ml bottle. First "Old Ale" for me. Clear and very dark brown colour, frothy tan head. Dark fruity, malty aroma and flavour, caramel, some sweetness too, very lightly roasted. Quite a smooth finish. Very nice beer.
