Enjoyed two glasses of this at the Armsby Abbey Stoutfest this weekend. Besides Canadian Breakfast Stout, this was my favorite beer. Truly a treat to drink. The first thing I enjoy is the classification. Old Ale, Stout?? What the hell is it? Well, it's fantastic.
Came in a tulip glass with a thick, creamy tan head that showed great retention. Slowly faded to a cap and then proceeded to leave a great deal of lacing in the glass. Dark brown and almost black. Just a shade lighter than most imperial stouts, but very very dark.
Aroma was the first treat. While it was definitely subtle, it was fantastic. Vanilla, bourbon, rich roasted malts all combined for a great aroma.
Vanilla, brown sugar, roasted malt, (not charred or burnt at all) bourbon and a sense of the wood. Every once in a while a maple flavor but I wasn't sure if it was maple or just a combination of the vanilla and brown sugar. Smooth yet complex. Another example where I am disappointed that these beers are limited to one time. This is a great beer and should be brewed again. There is a great deal of complexity here and I made sure to slowly enjoy the glasses.
Silky smooth mouth feel and the slightest carbonation. Fairly bold body but not syrup like at all. Lay on the tongue and the flavor lingered nicely.
If the keg didn't kick, I would have ordered a third.. That should speak nicely to the drinkability.

2010 vintage on tap at Barcade Brooklyn.
Dark brown body, nearly opaque. Some tan head and silky brown lace up top. Too bad it smells like nail polish. Acetone++
Old ale malt base joins the dry yeast and maple barrels to create a unique profile. Boozy, roasty, spikes of sweetness, finishes dry. Not much biscuit left. Did I mention boozy?
Glad I got to try this, but I wouldn't seek it out again.

Had what might be the last hand bottle from a quarter barrel and this beer did not disappoint the crowd. It held up was the general thought. The carbonation was nearly perfect for an ale. The flavors were great, sweet syrup, chocolate and strong boozy feel. Good stuff.
