Solid beer. I'm really starting to like old ales.

Split a bomber with my wife. First thing I noticed was a nice and thick head. No real aroma to speak of. Nice dark ruby red color. Taste was very thin, and bitter as all get out! As this beer warmed up it became more complex. Nice doughy flavors with some fruit and a faint whisky finish. Hey, that's what I tasted at least!

A real nice beer! As I stated earlier, I'm really starting to like these beers. After having an Old Woody (thnks to Weefishheads), and trying a Batch 6000 a few weeks ago, I'm starting to favor this style more and more.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A-Dark amber/copper color. Very clear. A light brown head that dissipates leaving a bit of lacing.

S- Pine, roasted malts, pine, caramel, and pine. Did I say pine?

T- Piney hops and bitter. This gives way to/is balanced by some roasted malts.

M- Medium with a decent amount of carbonation. Very smooth going down.

O- Finally tried this classic. Glad I did. If you like a hoppy/bitter ale this one is for you.
