This beer is 3 years old, so...

Pours a hazy copper brown with a modest cream head.

Aroma is reminiscent of cherry cough drops, with a bit of floral character.

Flavor follows suit, with more menthol and dull cherry flavor overtaking the toasted malt, into the fairly bitter, earthy, herbal, and medicinal finish.

Body is a little watery, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

I thought age was responsible for the of flavors, but other reviews indicate otherwise. This is going to be a little difficult to enjoy.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Clear red colored ale with a medium sized tan colored head.

Smells of butter and leather with some toffee thrown in it. Bitter oranges and some tobacco leaf with some sweetness.

Starts out sweet and malty with some English hop. Moderately hoppy and lightly bitter, tastes mostly of leather and tobacco. Alcohol warms the chest. Toffee candy make an appearance.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a very tasty beer.
