Appearance: brown, huge medium brown head
Aroma: a bit sour, bitter oaky,
Taste: Dry, I'm getting a number of spices, clove nutmeg, to name a couple, finishes tart and oaky
overall: not a huge fan it could have been a whole lot better. it almost tastes as though something got into the brew either in the bottle or the barrel more than likely form the spices added. the sour oakyness does fade a bit as it warms.

I was prepared for disappointment when I read the reviews on this brew. Turned out to be a winning choice!

This is the second BA old ale, that's sour(whether intentional or not), that I've come across. The first was from The Bruery and it was pretty disappointing.

Pours a lovely brown that's very cloudy. Very rich, light tan head that had a lot of retention.

Smell hits you with lacto and then the old ale caramels,malts, and alcohol sugars.

Taste hits you just like the aroma. Very sour bite that is followed by some alcohol and caramels. When colder the sour really kicked in. The more this guy warmed up the more the caramel and oak began to take over and at room temperature this brew was very smooth and oaky.

Medium body with a little alcohol present.

Decent beer, not sure if it was supposed to be sour or not but very enjoyable.

This started out as an odd beer but as it warmed up I really enjoyed it! Worth a try.

Some good bones with the making of an infection...tart cherry flavor is distracting.
