What a beauty this old style ale turned out to be. Sparkling dark amber pour with a thin white film and very little lacing. Slow carbonation and a considerable amount of sediment, but no worries man. Sweet malty aroma, sugary with a punch of alcohol. It's almost good enough just to sniff away on this, but alas it must be tasted. Intense flavor explosion of sweet caramel, candied sugar, floral hops, and even a touch of citrus goodness. Oh my there are more than a few layers to this and it all melds wonderfully. Full bodied, the alcohol makes it's presence once again in the finish. Exceptional.

Bottled September 10th, 2013. Halfway through, about an hour and a halfway after pouring, so it's ~60*F and IMO, at its most flavorful prime. (March 9 2014). Poured into a 16oz tulip.
Appearance- Poured aggressively, a deep brown with two fingers of brown head.
Smell- Grassy caramel.
Taste- Sweet, burnt, caramel, dark fruits, then pine. Crisp resiny aftertaste. Very little alcohol presence
Mouthfeel- Slightly thin for the style.Creamy at first, but quickly thins as it warms and oxidizes. Almost watery as I'm writing this, but that is expected 90 minutes after pouring.
One of my favorite beers in one of my favorite styles. Very sweet and malty with a bitter finish. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys strong ales/barleywines, or scotch ales.

Amber reddish color with a thin beige head with low retention.
Aroma of dark and red fruits, licorice and port wine.
Intense flavor of prunes, caramels, charred wood, red fruits, house wine, fig, raspberry, smoked, roasted and toasted malts. Very dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with low carbonation. Alcohol of 10.2% is harmonic with the beer. Sticky feeling.
Beer with good complexity and lower drinkability given its sweetness and sticky flavors, partially expected from the style.
Serving type: on-tap
