A - Poured out a nice creamy tan head with a dark ruby red body that you can see through once held up to the light. Nice and clean.
S - Produces a sweet ripe raisin / cherry smell with a satisfying smoothness. Mmmm, lovely..Slight alcohol tickle in the back that makes you wonder how strong this really is.
T - Slight hops in the beginning with the dark fruit coming in afterwards of cherries, black current, raisins and a little bit of alcohol in the finish. The beer has a lingering caramel sweetness throughout, and the overall flavor lingers.
M - In the mouth this is full bodied and soft as they come with a complementary light carbonation.
O - One of the best old ales that I have come across with a real smooth quality to it. If you like this style you should give this sipper a go. Has an alcohol bite and seems like a really good one for people who like to keep a few for cellering. This beer has a lot going good for it, and will become a regular one that I will seek out. Cheers!

Bottled on 9/11/13; poured into a snifter 7/25/14
A: Cola brown. A tan half finger head that dissipates to foam. Light lacing.
S: Dark fruits (plums, dates, raisins, figs), molasses, brown sugar.
T: Follows nose. Chewy, thick, robust, hearty. Syrupy. Almost bourbon-y. This one means business. The aging really improved on the smoothness.
M: Medium to heavy with light carbonation.
O: A stellar sipper. Really mellows as it warms. Recommended.
