Look: clear dark copper body with a very good beige head and lots of sticky lacing.

Had on draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy amber. Caramel and malts dominate the nose. There are notes of raisin, toffee, burnt sugar. Rich and delicious. rosenbergh (11653) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2015

Clear deep reddish brown colour with a tiny tan head.
Weak malty and alcoholic aroma.
Alcohol, sweet malt and bitterness in the flavour.
Too bitter and too sweet... messy.

From the label through what’s in the bottle, this beer reminds me a lot of Fish Old Woody. What a wonderfully nostalgic reminiscence. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2013
22. Pours a cloudy rubied mahogany with a dense and creamy tan head that falls quickly away. Fresh cut hardwoods on the nose, almost Bigfootish, along with tons of bready malts, bread crusts and dough and brown toast. Chewy thick body. Soft carb. Roasty, woody, sawdusty, bread crusty, heavy duty malty mid palate. Earthy herbal hop contrasts, almost a marjoram finish. Lovely big winter beer that brings back a particular memory of the bronze age of PNW brewing. This one might be a multi-repeater for this time of year.
From bottle. Reddish brown color. Boozy aroma. Sweet taste of oak, pitted fruit, and an almost bourbon alcohol kick. Finishes really smoothly, with a little lingering warming. pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle - pours amber with light tan head. Nose of oak, malt, and caramel. Sweet malty, boozy taste. Has a dry hoppy finish .

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a small beige head leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is strong caramel malt and toast. Thick mouthfeel with a strong roasted malt and light smoke in the finish. A very good old ale from Bend Brewing.
