look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into my Dogfish Head snifter.

Liquid is between purple-taupe and liver with an energetic yet fleeting khaki head. A thin ring forms and leaves small retreating legs here and there. Very nearly but not quite opaque.

Raisins, bread, grape-nuts, and non-descript mellow-aged spirit in the nose. Fig only very slightly in evidence, after the beer begins to warm up a little. There is a slight aroma which I can only describe as finely aged carpet, a domestic scent, like visiting a relative's 30 year old home that is clean and well kept up, but was never renovated.

The taste is sweet malt, a hint of hops (just the slightest touch of bitterness to balance the sugars) though they are trounced by the other flavors. Brown sugar, dried apricots, burdock root, malt liquor...almost like Thomas Hardy mixed with Spaten Optimator? Figs are present, but more as an added complexity rather than an assertive central flavor. Just the ghost of diacetyl...very very low level. Finish is the same as the palate really. Malty, sweet, and fruity with a vanishingly small suggestion of brown butter.

Medium bodied, smooth, no astringency...not especially warming. Steady albeit low carbonation.

Lacks the funk that some old ales have from barrel ageing or yeast, and lacks the hop complexity that some barleywines have. Still, quite tasty and very drinkable concoction.
