3.08/5 rDev -16.5%
Out of a bottle and into a Prairie snifter
A - murky brown with dark caramel tones. 2 finger head thats quick to dissipate. Seems highly carbonous in appearance. Hmmmm.
S - Coffee, maple syrup, and cherry syrup. Little bit of warm cacao.
T- Again...maple, chocolate, coffee. Nice hint of cherries. Toasted pecans and brown sugar. Not bad at all, but very light.
M- meh. Disappointed with this part. Not heavy or viscous or creamy. Its light and more carbonation than I prefer.
O- Disappointing. Light in taste (which some could say its nice and subtle), and light in body and mouthfeel. I wish I could like it as old ales are one of my favorites. This is probably the least favorite I've tried in that style though.

Originally $13.50 for a 500 ml bottle, but 20% off because Tully's was unloading some Christmas beers. Still on the expensive side.
In a snifter the beer was dark brown. The thick tan head persisted to the end, and left a smattering of lace.
A sweet fruit and caramel malt aroma.
Plums and prunes, toffee, a little oak.
A nice, medium-bodied old ale. Enjoyed it.

Dark brown in color with a thin but tightly knit cream colored head. I get some serious bourbon,carmelized sugar,and dark malt in the aroma. The flavor is molasses,Brett,plums, and bourbon and it somehow works together. The blend of molasses and bourbon are sweet,but the tartness of the Brett quickly follows. Mouthfeel is thick but dry.

3.59/5 rDev -2.7%
Pours chestnut/mahogany with 1 finger of cream colored head. Some lacing & head retention
S: Christmas pudding & brandy, plums & vanilla & smokeyness
T: Oaky dryness, plums, boozeyness, a touch of leafy hops up front. Slight smokeyness as this warms, oak & plummyness too. Finishes dry, with a bit of toffee, boozey with a bit of plum & leafy hops
MF: Fairly thick, slight carbonation, warming. Thins out as this warms
Not bad, but certainly came up short of expectations. I'm sure this will age well, but very rough on the edges now. Maybe my least favorite beer from these guys. If I buy any more it will be to age
