3.33/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Brown amber color with a thick head with eternal retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of caramel, licorice and rum.
Strong flavor of licorice, earthy hops, booze, caramels, raisins, cherries, a hint of pine with a strong malt sweetness. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with low carbonation.
This beer lacked some balance or the parts quite didn't match. I believe Avery tried to turbinate this Old Ale, but it did not work out well, it came out too sweet.

Serving type: on-tap

3.16/5  rDev -17.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: dark brown almost black. reddish hues around the edges. pretty opaque. small tannish head that leaves a little lacing behind

Smell: light roasted malts. lots of fruitiness. alcohol and an earthy hoppiness.

Taste: a mix of chocolate and roasted malts. dark fruitiness. and some booze in the background. and earth hoppiness as well

Mouthfeel: a little bit bitter and fairly sticky

Overall: I am a big fan of the old ales. but the flavors in this one just don't suit me. not enough malty sweetness.

Serving type: bottle
