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!

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.
