Ugh, smells like Lipton onion soup mix. Dark brown and light bodied with an odd onion powder and yeast flavor. Hop presence, but I really didn't care to search for any other characteristcs, as I got rid of this as quickly as possible. stevet99 (2) - reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2001 does not count
Great taste. No bitter taste and doesn't leave anything unpleasant on your palate. Slightly sweet. Filling.

one of the best all around beers ou there. ITs good anytime. Roasty hints and sweet caramelly notes. Yes I'll have another. npdempse (935) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2001
Really nice and mellow. Didn't note any fruitiness, really. More of a chocolatey taste, with a buttery palate. A pleasure to drink, but I think one's enough. Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 19, 2001
Nice rounded malt flavors, certainly a brew to cozy up with next to a fire.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2003 A classical representation of an old ale. Mostly sweet and malty, it's flavorful, well-rounded and very satisfying. Stronger style but not too heavy. dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2001
Complex, enjoyable to drink, but not my favorite............................ weeicemon (126) - Lancaster, California, USA - APR 11, 2001
Classicly smooth and incredibly well-rounded. Roasted nutiness thats very easy going down from beginning to the end. Will always be a favorite. opiate (199) - Sandy, Utah, USA - APR 8, 2001
This is an incredible beer. Very
malty/fruity. (Dried fruit aroma and flavor.)
It has just a hint of roastiness in the finish.
I'm enjoying one now!

A favourite amongst old ales. It's been a while since I've had it, but I remember how much I liked it.
