3.98/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Extremely dark for an old ale; black and just shy of opaque. Head is frothy an mocha colored, with great retention.

S: American PNW hops are there, but not much else...

T: Quite sweet, with a definite emphasis on the malty side of things. Caramel, vanilla, and custard are well presented, with little of the hops that have been promised by the nose. My only complaint is that the brew is a tad too sweet. Don't get me wrong, I love my Old Ales to be malt forward. I just feel that this particular example could benefit from a higher degree of attenuation.

M: Full bodied, velvety, and a touch sticky.

D: Overall, this is a solid brew from one of my favorite breweries. Again, a touch too sweet, but delicious nonetheless. Definitely worth a shot.

3.78/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

~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.
