Oakes (16465) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Dark brown and a little bit muddy. There is only a thin wisp of head. The aroma is malty with some dark fruit accents mimicking English yeast, Fullers wouldnt actually surprise me at all. There are caramel notes in the malt, balanced by light plums and dark fruit. The sweetness is balanced slightly by the high alcohol and a lightly chocolatey character. Good ale when I had it years ago, and now it tastes a little old school but still good ale.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Malty dark ale. Strong alcohol and chocolate notes are completely hidden in its complex and easy to drink taste. Original 4.4 - Rerated 3.6
