The second best old ale in the world and it tastes like it. Awesome! Pours dark brown with quick fading head. Huge sweet dried fruit, vanilla and bourbon aroma. Maple too. So smooth for the ABV. Almost no alcohol detected. Wonderfully sweet, but not too sweet. Big barrel flavours, dried fruit, bread, vanilla. Pretty amazing. Close to perfect.

fischersfriend (37) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2017
Aroma, Bourbon , vanilla, coconut, nuts and dark fruits. Appearance, pours three quarters dark. Almost no head. Taste, bourbon, almond, malts; coconut, toasted flavors, cake, cherry and dark fruits with a touch of cinnamon. Palate, super smooth, flat cola . Alcohol is well hidden. Warms as it goes down. Overall, an amazing complex brew. My guess aging has perfected its taste. Not much to fault here. Exceptional world class sipper. Plan on aging a few bottles.

thetmaxx (927) - West Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle from the north coast store in Fort Bragg. Aroma sends shivers up my spine, the chocolate and bourbon blends so well. Flavor also brings up lots of chocolate flavors with the bourbon up front and the alcohol clearing the palate quickly with a bit of sweet sticky finish.

NikkTwist (3345) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2017
2013 vintage draft at Bru Craft during a North Coast event. Nearly opaque dark brown pour with overflowing foam - difficult pour. Huge, rich, pungent toffee caramel flavors. Chocolate bourbon. Raspberry orange. Cherry raisin. Vanilla oak. Plum pudding. Candied ginger. Black liquorice. Celery stalks. Giant, dark, foreboding, complex, and wonderful! A galaxy of flavor in every sip!
