~25ml portion of a 2013/14 bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Bottled on date: 8 Nov. 2013.

Pours a murky dark brown, leaving hardly a trace of sediment in the bottle.

Aroma: sweet and roasted grains, alcohol esters, cooked peaches and other fruits.
Flavor: sweet, bordering on too sweet, with plenty of soft and dark fruits, some alcohol esters, dark bread, chocolate, fruity hops, and hints of toffee and brown sugar.

O: Distinct, complex and interesting. Would likely benefit from some further aging.

2011/2012 bottling

Pours with a huge ruby/tan head into my Bruery tulip. This raisin colored beauty takes a while to fade down and leaves just spots and touches of lacing hanging onto the glass. Amazing legs that stick like honey to the sides of the glass and drip away slowly. Killer carbonation for an Old Ale.
Rum soaked raisins, brown sugar, molasses, toffee and caramel, dried cherries, little hints of orange zest, all spice, star anise, cinnimon and fruit cake. If I didn't want to sip this so badly, I could keep my nose deep inside this glass all night. This is sooo rich and delicious. Little hints of mint, basil and pine.
Exactly like the nose tells you. This is Grandma's Rum Raisin Fruit cake in a glass. Brown sugar, molasses cookies, Dried cherries covered in caramel and dipped in milk chocolate and zested with fresh blood orange rind. This is a BIG beer, and it's damn near perfection for the style. It's so rich, sweet, and unbelievably delicious. I wish I had some Oatmeal Raisin cookies right about now.
It has a nice touch of tingle on the tongue, but that could just be the 11%abv. Not completely oily, but really coats the tongue nicely. This is an Old Ale/English Barleywine at it's finest. Great caramel feel with a subtle citrus/spice zing.
I need more of this!!! This was a perfect bottle to open on this winter night. Amazing in every aspect.

Decadent sweetness and layer upon layer of bold complexities gives this larger-than-life beer an allure that will talk any hop-head to the malty side of the fence.

Ok, sometimes the grass is greener on the other side, if for only a beer or two- the ale pours with a viscous but creamy pour. As the lavish mahogany-hued ale slowly settles into the glass, a slow rise of ultra-dense foam eventually caps the beer in what looks like creamy meringue. Hazy and rusty beneath, the ale is redish-brown and nearly opaque. Its foam stance is persistent and sticky with lace while the beer trails.

Rich aromas of toffee, maple and molasses evoke mouthwatering stimulation while a savory toasted caramel character gives something a bit more robust. Heavily bready, the deserts of coffee and rum cakes seem to rise from the malty matrix. Seemingly spiced like rum as well, light cinnamon, allspice and clove seem to rise from the sting of alcohol and wraps around its dark fruit esters seamlessly.

As as that savory malt sweetness greets the early palate, its that coffee cake richness that clings to the taste buds. Hearty molasses, toffee and maple seems slightly buttery, heavily caramelized and very bready. Dark and dried fruits resemble plumb, raisin, cherry, apple and prune in somewhat fruitcake-like fashion. Sometimes coating the mouth like heavy whipping cream, the spicy alcohols slice right through all that richness with that same spiced rum character that the nose relied upon.

Heavy and dense, the beer's chewy mouthfeel lays a thick coat upon the mouth with a slow and lumbering finish. Its utter creamy texture is slow to separate its creamy carbonation and leads to a bready-sweet mouthfeel even deep into finish. Spicy warmth is the ale's only balance as the ale trails with dark rum once again.

Warmer Winter is the epitome of cold weather beer- it's hearty, rich, and most importantly- potent! ...and stacked inside a 22oz bottle, a warm up is on the way!

This poured with a very rich color of chocolate brown with a thin layer of tight knit foam. The nose was strong with barley malt and sweet chocolate with a underpinning of dried fruit. The flavor was a barley bomb with huge amounts of dry yet sweet barley malts. The sweetness eased into chocolate with a soft prune finish. The feel was slick and full with almost no carbonation. Very good barley wine, maybe not BCBW but really good.

Bottle from Florida for Christmas. From notes.

A - Copper colour with a tight beige two finger head. Bright. Mild carbonation, spotty lace, film retention.

S - Dark fruit, lot's of hops, leather, nice barleywine-esque quality.

T - Dark fruit, rich malt and a wallop of hops, alcohol, citrus.

M - Nice carbonation, full body, bitter finish.

O/D - This was pretty solid. Nearly a barleywine and very pleasant. Complex and enjoyable while being way too easy to drink. Hops weren't too harsh in the profile and the malt complexity was nice. No complaints here.

2011 release.

Deep dark ruby with a coarse mount of fluffy beige head. Looks like a delicious sipper.

Caramelly malt with toffee sugar, raisin, hints of oxidized apple, and punchy booze. Notes of milk chocolate and dried fruit.

Sweet caramel malt with big mallow and toffee flavors. Very sweet, almost cloying. Rich grain and evolving flavors. Date, raisin, and milk chocolate. The body of the beer is just shy of syrupy. A little carbonation leftover causing some sizzle. Trailing behind all the beastly malts and high gravity is a tinge of citrusy hops. Very nice.

Tasty old ale with a sweet caramelly bent. Recommended.

Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to sportstsar for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, candied fruit, citrus zest, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toasty bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is quite rich and boozy.

2012-2013 Vintage
750ml bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours a completely opaque deep deep dark reddish brown color, mahghony, a thick creamy light tan yellowish head with a good 1/2 inch or so of retention, thick sticky lacing. Looks nice.

Smells pretty rich and sweet, all about the malt and the dark fruits. Plums, raisins, dates. A bit of an olive juice component is in there. A bit of alcohol comes in as it warms.

Thick and sweet, all about the malt. Lots of them same dark fruits, a nice nutty flavor, rum soaked and candied dark fruits, maybe even a hint of wood. A bit of hop bitterness in the finish, but it doesn't stand up against the big sweet malts and is quickly overtaken.

Almost syrupy sweet, a fine carbonation, heavy bodied.

One of the better straight up old ales I've had. This in any kind of barrel would most likely be amazing. I've yet to have a bad beer from CCB.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look: A great caramel color. Definitely a prelude of things to come. The head was about one finger, that went down to a constant thin layer, that leaves some decent lacing.

Smell: My first thought was olive. There was a clear olive smell, but then it transitioned into a smokey caramel. Maybe bits of coffee in there as well.

Taste: Again, like the smell, it was one thing, then moved onto another. At first I definitely tasted the citrus. After that, the citrus gave way to a very sweet caramel. Smokey caramel at that.

Feel: This to me, is a very sweet beer, so my initial reaction is to not keep it in my mouth very long. Carbonation is medium, and it has an overall thickness to it. I wasn't head over heels about the feel myself. It wasn't terrible, but just felt odd.

Overall: I'm not experienced in Old Ales, but this one will keep me trying others. It might be just a bit too sweet, but in moderation I don't think it'd be a problem with me. I loved the changing of smells and taste, I found that to be one of the fun moments of the beer.

a dark amber, opaque, with 2 fingers of creme colored head causing lots of great lacing. smells of caramel, toffee, dark fruit notes (raisin, date). lots of sweet plum, raisin, dates in the flavor. sweet malty profile making it very sugary and heavy on the abv (though not notable). full body with low carbonation.. a nice warmth in the chest.

this is a pretty nice beer, but not overall that impressed. maybe some wood aged variants of this, or a bourbon barrel aged one could be more up my alley. a little too sweet, but it is definitely a nice dessert beer - as far as old ales go, it's a bit different for the style.

Pours a pretty datk amber with creamy tall head. Aroma of candy apples and a bit of pine hops. Taste is sweet with malt, caramel, green apples. A definite puckering grapefruit hop presence that I was expecting. Thick and chewey mouthfeel. Extremely smooth. Bit of alcohol warmth on the finish. Very interesting brew that is definitely fitting for winter time.

2012-2013 bottle courtesy of a pal from Jacksonville area

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint at 50 degrees

A: Beautiful funky brownish orange with about a 1/2 inch head that dissipates quickly leaving only a nice resin around the edges

S: Like jamming your face in a jar of citrus fruits that have been soaked in sugar. Very sweet, slight oak, lots of toffee, and quite a bit of hops at the back end

T: Taste for me was very sweet up front but it quickly changed into a very fruity wood flavor. Very reminiscent of citrus barleywines such as a local favorite of mine, Blackfin from Beach Brewing. Has some grapefruit and a little chocolate in the middle as well...makes you forget there is even alcohol in the beer

M: Mouthfeel is chewy, oily and syrupy....almost too syrupy

O: I like this beer as I am a fan of Old Ales in general. The only complaint I would have is that its hard to finish a bomber alone, but with that said, I did so. Its very sweet and syrupy but the woody aspect and grapefruit notes make this beer sneak up on you if you arent careful. I enjoyed it, but definately couldnt drink it every night nor could I drink anything else after having this beer as it makes you have a sugar overload.

750mL bottle courtesy of claspada. Thanks!

A: Brown with a tint of plum. Lasting creme head. Nice legs.

N: Loads of pineapple, mango, caramel, and biscuit. This is very hoppy and it is quite delectable.

T: Very syrupy and tropical. Maple syrup, brown sugar, pineapple and some earth/pine. There’s an unpleasant astringency, nearly tannic, that doesn’t meld with the sugary nature.

M: Lighter side of medium and lots of alcohol.

O: Solventy after it warms. I am not impressed and am considering dumping the remains of my glass. Not the worst thing I’ve ever had... I guess.

Thick single finger off white head with excellent retention and lacing on a cloudy, deep amber copper body. Very nice dark fruit aroma with fig, molasses, plum and raisin with hints of caramel. Flavor follows nicely with more fig, plum, raisin and apple for dark fruit, candy sugar, caramel, candied citrus and more hitch borders on being a little too sweet. Medium body which is smooth and oily with moderate carbonation. Very flavorful, a little too sweet though but the booze are definitely well hidden. A very well crafted brew.

T: Breadiness and sweet malts up front. Some old booziness.

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

Served in an over-sized wine glass. Vintage bottle November 2011 served December 26, 2012.

Appearance: A cloudy mahogany not exactly opaque but very dark....head was definitely thick a notch over a finger's length settling real slow coming off an orange tinted light tan color.

Smell: Strong everything, picking it apart is the hard part. You smell

Taste: Dare I say it complex, sweet malty I can quite honestly say very good. Has notes of burnt caramel, the strong alcohol taste would be either an advantage or disadvantage. I like it but too much of it seems just a bit overwhelming.

Mouth: It's good, the problem is that it disappears just a little too quickly. Malts are so rich it might make up for it. Medium and gets better as you take a few more sips.

Overall: Very good beer, I am tempted into buying another just for kicks. No F that I want to buy more because it really good. I have been growing a huge liking to Old Ales and this one has joined the list. Salud!

Poured from the bottle into a Chimay goblet.

Appearance: The beer pours a very murky mahogany color with a finger of creamy off white head. The head sticks around nicely and coats the glass.

Smell: Sweet and malty up front with a lot of dark fruit. Definitely some hops here as well, I'm getting some citrus peel.

Taste: There is a lot of malt sweetness here too, but the hops show up more than they did in the nose. Dark fruit and a hint of molasses join the citrus peel bitterness. The favors don't integrate seamlessly, but I'm enjoying everything. The finish is bitter with a lingering malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel: The body is syrupy with thick, creamy carbonation and a finish that's just a touch dry.

Overall: I'm not sure I loved the combination of favors, but I enjoyed the beer enough. The bitter and sweet clashed a bit in my opinion.

Poured from bomber into chalice glass. Pours cloudy burnt orange with an average tan, orange tinted, head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is dominated by caramel, toffee, maple, and more caramel, with a touch of vanilla, and a lightly burnt note as well. The flavor is a bit more of the bitter burnt note dominated by caramel, toffee, maple, and that same touch of vanilla. The body is full with average carbonation and a long caramel and lightly bitter finish. Overall, a pretty good winter warmer and glad to have tried this one out.

This one is served from a 750ml bottle into a Stella Artois snifter. Pours a rather ruddy, muddy, brownish red color. Not exactly pleasing to the eyes. There is a nice, huge and rocky caramel tinted colored head of great retention.

Fruity in aroma with pineapple, some banana, plums, raisins. Loads of caramel backbone in the aroma. Not much hop aroma.

Flavors are a bit muddled. Nothing seems to fit together well. More pineapple and mango in the flavor. Toffee, alcohol really swoops in on this one, slightly boozy. Not very cohesive; quite jumbled. I don't know how else to explain it except that things seems disjointed. Perhaps this one is too young.

Not a huge fan of this one. I like the full body and chewy mouthfeel, but nothing really stood out with this one.

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

Lightly chilled 25.4 oz. bomber into a 12 oz tulip. 2012-13 vintage.

Look- Medium amber with a reddish tinge. Two fingers of dense eggnog foam. Gobs of sticky lace

Smell- Mild, white raisin, vaguely perfumelike, bubblegum, light treacle, savory spice. Swirling brings out a sweeter, nutty, cherry aroma. Subtle and many-hued.

Taste- Similar to the aroma. Cherry, mint, aloe in light syrup, candied orange peel, maple, milk chocolate, toffee, quite sweet but never overly so. Hints of roast and a vague hop presence defy my expectation. Vaguely woody towards the finish. Lingering nougat. Alcohol is there but not as overt as anticipated. Pretty nice.

Mouthfeel- Full, sticky, smooth. Light carbonation, syrupy feel. Substantial. I'll re-cap the rest for tomorrow.

Overall- An interesting brew, definitely a barleywine feel. Big, bold, lots of layered flavors. It could be lighter, but that's obviously not what it's going for. Absolutely worth picking up, I wish I had a few more to hold onto.

A: The beer is very dark reddish brown in color. It poured with a two finger high dense beige head that died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are light aromas of citrus in the nose. As the beer warms up, these become stronger and toffee also becomes very apparent.
T: The overall taste is rather sweet and has flavors of toffee along with notes of chocolate and hints of citrusy hops. The combination of toffee and chocolate make the taste resemble a Tootsie Roll.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation.
O: The citrusy aromas are quite unusual and interesting for the style. The alcohol is well hidden from the taste, although the amount of sweetness is what will make you need to sip this beer.

Ridiculously over carbonated. The bottle emptied half of itself out on opening, and even after it settled down foam towered over the glass when it was poured.

A - Murky ice tea brown. Light tan head dominates the glass leaving a striking amount of lace.

S - Plum, coriander, molasses, rich milk chocolate, clove, and a hint of cinnamon.

T - Holy crap this is way too sweet. Strong booze with a syrupy sweet profile of dark dried fruits, chocolate ganache, simple syrup, vanilla, and cream. Cherry, pomegranate, chocolate, and creme brûlée finish.

M - Thick and syrupy.

O - Possibly the sweetest beer I've ever consumed. Way out of balance.

thanks to chefbergo for the chance to try this Olde Ale. Thanks Shawn!

reviewed from notes taken 7/29/12.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: dark brown bodied beer with big light brown head.

Smell: This is very fruity and malty. One demensional.

Taste: Woah. This thing is way too sweet. lots of candied sugar and fruity malts. Almost reminds me of a scottish ale that fermented too long. Its a bit boozey too.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Super stick and a little overcarbonated.

Overall: Did not enjoy this beer, but I am not sure this is true to the olde ale style either. Aviod this beer!

Poured into a Saint Somewhere wine-style glass. Label says NOV 2011.

A- Pours a solid brown color with a full two-finger tan head that bears good retention time before becoming a 1/2 inch head. Thick webs of lacing.

S- Smells strong and sweet with a heavy malt aroma. Notes of caramel, spices, dark fruit and anise. Some hop aromas hint more toward a barleywine.

T- Powerful snap of toasty, candied malts with a fair amount of hops and booze to back it up. Overall, a decent balance with rich overtones of dark fruit and spice. Mild licorice flavor is also present. Big notes of raisin and figs.

M- Creamy and smooth with some punch from the high carbonation. Medium-heavy body.

O- Could use a little more aging but I think I plucked it at an appropriate time since I'm celebrating Christmas in June!
