4.18/5 rDev +13%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.
Pours a chocolate brown with almost no head. Appears to have low carbonation. Light spots of lacing.
Smells rich and malty. Dark fruits make themselves known, especially those dates. Not much of a hop presence. The malt is the dominant force here. Fairly straight forward aroma.
Just like the aroma, rich and malty are the two best terms to describe it. Has a sweetness to it too. Dates are there but take a backseat to the malt. They complement each other very well. After tasting a bunch of their beers, I assume their house yeast is similar to english yeast strains. A very light bitterness.
A good barely above medium body. Low carbonation. A good winter sipper just as the label suggests.
Having had less than 10 old ales before, this one ranks in the top half for sure. Not the most extreme beer, but thats what I like about Greenbush, they just make awesome beer. I think all of their beers are a little low on carbonation, this one included. The only other thing I would change about this beer is adding a little bit more body, but I am happy with it either way.

4/5 rDev +8.1%

Type: on-tap pint
From: Ashley's in Ann Arbor
Appearance: Dark brown almost black. No head by time I got it, but a nice white lacing around the outside. almost opaque.
Smell: Malty goodness. sweet, some dark fruits, a touch of alcohol.
Taste: pretty sweet, strong malts, dark fruits and a nice touch of alcohol. good but could use just a little something more
Mouthfeel: medium to slightly heavier. just a tad sticky.
Overall: a well brewed beer but needs just one more tweak to make great. I like my old ales a little bit more character. This one could use maybe some earthy hops, some age in an oak barrel, or maybe a combination of hops and toffee. My second beer from greenbush. both were good, neither wowed me.
Serving type: on-tap
