From 02/11/14 notes. On tap at The Jeffrey in NYC; $8 for a 10oz pour in a tulip.
a - Pours a somewhat murky reddish brown color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of sweet dark fruits, wheat, oats, plums, figs, toffee, caramel malts, toasted malts, bread, and alcohol. Nice nose, lots of dark fruits and malts.
t - Tastes of sweet dark fruity malts, caramel malts, alcohol, bread, grains, toasted malts, toffee, wheat, dough, earthy notes, light spice. More caramel and booze than the nose.
m - Medium body and low carbonation. Light booze to it.
o - Overall a very nice old ale. Lots of dark fruits and caramel throughout. Alcohol is a little noticable but it doesn't hinder drinking it. Would have it again.

Appearance has a murky reddish-brown beer with a small tan head. Retention and lacing are low.
Smells are of rich malts, brown bread, caramel, chocolate, molasses and dark fruits.
The taste has notes of oak, vanilla and molasses, plus woody hop character. It also has a tannic quality that adds some acidity and bitterness.
Mouthfeel has a lively carbonation and a medium body. The finish has flavors of dark fruit sweetness and more of the tannins that adds acidity.
Overall a nice nightcap of a beer but the tannins were a negative.
