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.
