look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Copper/rust colored with a very small head and no lacing.

Smells sweet and malty.

The taste is strong of molasses and alcohol. Very strong malt flavors, but not so overbearing that it's hard to drink. It's very sweet and easy to drink for such a high ABV.

Seems like medium to low carbonation. Finishes sweet and smooth.

A really good Old Ale. High ABV, easy to drink, complex smell and flavor. Hard to say anything but this is a very high quality beer.
