Not too sure how many Old Ales I have had...
Looks good, deep copper body, one finger head... Immediately into sweet aromas and taste, almost like a cross between a Quad and an English strong ale. Lots of brown sugar and malts and yes molasses. Really quite sweet overall. The alcohol comes thru... Was not aware of the high ABV but on drinking port notes are evident, as is alcohol burn. Unwelcome slightly astringent note on back palate.
Odd in some ways, tho, almost like a base strong beer had a ton of sugar added. Very late.
One to cellar methinks.
