Tap at Jack Rose. Clear deep brown pour with reddish highlights. Medium tan foam. Weaker retention. Vinegar, odd cherry nose. Dark cherry attempt. Taste is papery, bitter, dark cherry. Okay. Lactic palate, mild chocolate density. Not too bad. Wouldn’t call it Old Ale though. More Belgian Strong. nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2013

Pours a murky chestnut color with a medium off white head...decent lacing. Aroma has mild woody/earthy notes and dark fruits...raisin. flavor has caramel and brown sugar, some raisin, earthy/woody hop notes...a balancing earthy bitterness cuts through the sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/roasty and almost burnt bitter...dry and lingering.
