Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: DrinkSlurm on 01-06-2012

Malt forward, full bodied, deep red, with just enough hop balance. Inspired by some of our favorite English Olde Ales. Brewed a bit strong for sustenance and warmth on those cold winter nights.

Poured a 3-oz sample.
Pours a deep brown, syrup-like brown. Thick brown-ish head.
Sweet malty aroma, ever so slight hop and alcohol smell as well.
Taste is malty caramel...I may be detecting some dates or chestnut?? Alcohol finish.
The aftertaste lingers...malty, bready, caramel.
Its a very drinkable Old Ale...I actually quite like it. It definitely flies low on the "wow" radar, but I did enjoy it. It seems like a great brew to grab a growler of for a cold day...
I am becoming a very big fan of Greenport Harbor. (524 characters)

A - Pours brown with a tan foam. Coates the glass with a thick coating; decent lacing.

S - Smells sweet with notes of maple. There is a bit of a fruit scent as well.

T - Initially sweet with flavors of maple syrup and candied fruit. Slight malty component. Finish has a cordial-like quality.

M - Mellow for the style, though it is more of an after dinner beer, and not one to generally have more than one of.

O - Much like its oaked variant, I found it to be a tasty beer for the cold months, but something to enjoy once and then move on. (542 characters)

Pours a pretty dark amber color with hints of ruby. Smallish tight khaki head left some webby lacing.

The aroma is faint, perharps a touch malty and a general caramel sweetness.

The taste is bockish. Toasted malt with a slight meaty flavor. Pleasant grain flavor. A subtle deep toffee note, candied cherry. Nice range of flavors, has some depth.

Moderate to full feel. Spicy sweet with just enough toasted bitterness. Slightly sticky.

A very tasty winter brew. I like the bock type flavors. It is a bit sweet. (517 characters)

I had this beer on tap in a thistle glass at the Stag's Head in New York.

Appearance: rich dark amber hue with no haze. Head was a couple of fingers of ivory foam with good retention. Nice!

Smell: malty and sweet with a lot of toffee character. Some dark fruits, raisin and dates are evident. A good example of the style.

Taste: sweet malt with a lot of biscuity/bready character. Some nice dark fruity character, but too biscuity for my taste, even for the style.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a nice smooth creaminess. It works for me.

Overall: a good beer, if not totally suited to my palate. I would like to give this another try, though, some time down the road. (676 characters)

I tried this old ale and must say that it was too sweet to enjoy. It looked and smelled alright, but had such a strong molasass and dark fruit notes. It was like each plum preserves. The syrupy mouthfeel was not helpful. I was curious about this brewery and me thinks that curiousity is waning rather quickly. I will try something dry hopped if they have any considerable offering of that style. Heck, you can't hit a homerun every time you come to the plate. (459 characters)
