Way too sweet! Far from the mellow characteristic expected of the style. Unfinished fermentation, young batch?

Upon opening the bottle and pouring the first little bit, I was nervous as the carbonation was so thick and high that I thought I had gotten a bad bottle. After about 5 minutes the carb receded and lingered around the top like a crown. Dark in appearance and displayed a wonderful aroma of brown sugar, molasses, and raisins. This was very reminiscent of Sucre in it's body and flavors. At 10%, the alcohol was hidden very well. I need to grab a few more bottle of this on my next purchase. A wonderful Old Ale that is worth drinking over and over. And, if you've never had it, go and find it; I promise you will not be disappointed.

4.15/5  rDev -2.8%

Appearance: Pours a murky, mostly opaque dark brown. Very little head that dissipates quite quickly.

Smell: Lots of tobacco and oak on the front, rolling into a raisin-esque sweetness. A slight tinge of alcohol sits beneath it all.

Mouthfeel: Quite low in carbonation and a little bit slick on the tongue. Finishes surprisingly dry for the ABV and the aroma.

Taste: There's a lot going on here. There's dark fruit sweetness, caramel, a bit of leather, and the tobacco that comes through on the nose is there too. I usually get vanilla from oak, but none here. The alcohol is certainly present, but doesn't detract much from the beer. The sweetness isn't cloying at all, but for some the tobacco/leather qualities might be.

Overall: Great beer overall; bold, flavorful, complex, and a tiny bit boozy. I wish the alcohol was hidden a bit better.
