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.

5/5 rDev +21.4%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
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.

3.91/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
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.
