Pours a cloudy ruddy brown with a short lasting light tan head. The head burns off quickly and leaves no lacing. Despite that, there is a trickle of carbonation on the finish. The aroma is rich, with deep toffee and dark fruit notes. The taste is similar, with a nice warming effect from the alcohol that doesn't overwhelm the flavors. It has a certain creamy quality to it that simply adds to the combination. A great, well-built Old Ale.
It gets even better as it warms.
