Bottle received in trade from TexIndy, thanks for the opportunity!
Shared with a few folks sitting around a campfire at Rob's
Huge oak and brown sugar with lots of fruit and a touch of warming alcohol. Not much of the spirit left, but a great beer to sip with friends.

Bottle pour at the bottle share held at Chloe's inside Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, vanilla, and lots of bourbon aromas. Taste is much the same with vanilla and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is an alcohol kick after each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great aromas and flavors but it's still quite boozy.

Thanks to Alex for sharing.

A - Doesn't pour with much visible carbonation. Pretty thick looking. Brown bodied beer with some reddish highlights.

S - Nice caramel, dark fruits, bourbon, oak and vanilla. Really everything you could ask for as far as an Old Ale goes.

T - Love the taste of this. It's slightly hot, but the bit of alcohol warmth is great with the caramel, barrel, and vanilla. Bourbon is great. This is a fantastic beer.

M - Full bodied, pretty low carbonation.

O - Fantastic beer, drinks well enough for something with this much ABV. Quite smooth. While it's a little more rough than the newest beer in this series, it's also less sweet and I like it a bit more. Would love to drink this again.
