The beer pours some extremely creamy head that is lightly tan, and dissipates unusually quickly. The beer itself is a reddish brown that is opaque. The beer has a slight wine appearance to it despite it being a beer.
The beer has strong caramel noted and very deep vanilla scents from the barrel. The smell has a slight alcohol note to it as well, but it is somewhat faint. The beer also has a dark fruit note that comes off as a raisin, but it is quickly overwhelmed by the caramel and vanilla notes. The beer taste is similar to the smell. Strong caramel notes mixed with smooth vanilla. In addition to the caramel, the malts also have a slight toffee taste. The alcohol also makes a much stronger appearance in the taste, and gives off a slight wine taste. The fruits are also more prominent, and not just raisin. In the taste, some funk from the yeast is noticeable , and blends well with the alcohol taste. The malts also gives off a light toast taste that is barely noticeable. Also, the beer has some burnt sugar notes.
The mouthfeel is very, very smooth with a slight alcohol burn at the end. The beer ends with a very dry, and bitter finish. The carbonation is very little, and has a very tiny bite. Overall, this beer is a very, very good, and very complex old ale. The beer slightly resembles a slightly carbonated, and sugary wine.
