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

Poured into a snifter.

A: Slightly hazy red-brown with a one-finger, off-white, creamy and foamy head that lasted several minutes. Nice lacing.

S: Dark fruit, alcohol, and oak.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Oak and vanilla, then alcohol.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Smooth, warm, and alcoholic.

O: This beer looks really nice in my snifter. And the oak and vanilla taste is interesting. I don't have much experience with old ales, but I like this one.
