2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at RBWG. Pours amber with a thin white head. Nose was overripe fruit, some toffee, some booze, some leather, and some rotten fruit. Flavor was similar- funky, some booze, some toffee, some leather, and some definite overripe fruit. I am not sure about this one; lingering leather and old fruit into the finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
rbwg2015. 750mL bottle, courtesy of Markwise, pours with a clear amber body that supports . . . well, really no head at all. The aroma offers up sweet malts and molasses and then soured lime, moldy lime, plastic toilet and then sun dried dates. The taste delivers thin yet slick malts, molasses, a pleasing toffee note and then apple, tannin tartness and then another dash of lime. Very interesting brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared during the Grand Tasting of RBWG 2015. Pours clear chestnut with a foamy head. Pretty hearty, with lots of tangy and ripe fruits, berries, caramel. Medium sweet flavor, pretty oily and tangy. Lots of oxidation present in the finish with old fruits, berries in particular, some uninspiring caramel. Must be pretty old. Interesting, but thatís about it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy reddish-brown with a weak head.
Strong unattractive aroma much like a few other old ales, if a bit stronger.
Very low carbonation. Medium-full body.
O: recommended only for fans of the style.
