4/5 rDev +8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Old Crafty Hen - 6.5% ABV. Pours into a short fluffy head with good lacing and retention. Caramel brown body. Small bubbles with very active carbonation. Smells of nutty bread and caramel. All malt on the front nose. Crisp sugars and raisins. A rum filled mid-palate. Great crisp clove and plum back palate. Lingering rum and oak aftertaste. Beautiful rum like charectar. Thick syrup filled mouthfeel. So well rounded. So full. For a malt head this is it-- 4.0. Very good. Highly recommended for the malt lover or those searching for the anti-hop beer.

Beautiful dark amber color (a whisky color). It generates foam everytime you shake a bit the glass.
Malty smell, a bit sweet, kind of fruity but dificult to distinguish witch fruit (maybe cherry); kind of alcoholic too and it's a bit smoky.
Same thing for the taste, but much more sweet and warm. Nice to drink in little swigs.
Mouthfeel is "bubbly" and much more light than I thought it would be.
Kind of a complex beer, I like it! Just din't feel the oak well..

Thick off-white foamy head. Leaves ring of lace after each sip. Orange, light brown color with a touch of haze.
Smells like cut soured cherries. Some sweet melted sugar.
Rich, almost oily body. Lower carbonation enhances this feel. Potent, lightly toasted malt base. Some alcohol warmth on the tongue. A touch of sourness but less than the smell implies. There's a bit of hop to prevent the beer becoming cloy. Short Carmel candy aftertaste.
Seeing the other scores here, I think it might be worthwhile to find this one on tap.
