Had this poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Color was a rich brown, average head, not a ton of lacing. The flavor had a pretty strong boozy finish after notes of brown sugar and malt. The mouthfeel was smooth, very pleasant. Not bad.

My experience with Old Ales is limited but from what I have experienced I found this beer to be very well done. In my opinion the nose was not off the chart but the real experience is when I began to sip it. The beer poured very dark and looked appealing from the get go. It had a good amount of carbonation and mouthfeel to make it enjoyable and lively. The malts kept this beer at a enjoyable sweetness level without pushing it into a desert beer category. I did not think the alcohol was "hot" and was masked by the beer. The beer changed in a favorable way for me as the beer warmed. The bitterness was very mild. Normally I am disappointed by some seasonable/holiday brews but what started as a single bottle turned into a trip for a six pack for me. Very well done!

Gets better as it warms. Had to come back to re-rate it.
