Bought fresh from the brewery shop in Tadcaster and drunk from a Samuel Smith's snifter.

A: Beautiful darkish amber. Clear. Off-white foamy head.

S: Bready and fruity. Fudge.

T: Bread pudding fruitiness, vanilla, fudge, liquorice and nail varnish combined with the hoppy bitterness and that gingery prickliness you get from English ale. It has sweetness but it's balanced beautifully with everything else. Strawberries appear further down the bottle.

M: A very elegant effervescence.

O: Close to perfection.

First off, it's got a great dark copper color with a slight haze and a yellowish-tan head that dissipates fairly quick. Nose is sweet with pronounced hop and fruit characters and a background of leather. Starts off with an oaken malty spiciness that progresses to some nice flavoring hops, then some slightly roasted and nutty characters before finishing with an alcoholic warmth and lingering floral bitterness reminiscent of a lambic. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly effervescent, almost like a bubbly cognac. This beer is extremely drinkable and balanced. It's a great example of what an old ale can strive to be; there's a fine balance between an old ale, english barleywine, and flander's ale. If you have a chance to purchase a bottle, get two!
