Overall , I was a bit disappointed after drinking this beer . There were many different notes within the beer but I feel like it was trying to be too much but at the same time not delivering any one of it . It left me wanting more , more of the flavor , more of the aroma , and more of a satisfaction . I guess they're experimenting with this beer but my poor ratings reflected how much of a good beer it COULD be but unfortunately it wasn't . I tried it on tap and wouldn't be having anymore of it anytime soon .

Cheers

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

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.

Are you kidding me!!! This is not an old ale. This is a tart slightly sour ale. I would be careful aging this as the sour flavor may get more intense. Great brewery bad, misrepresented beer. Stick to your big stouts, the bomb is world class.

This beer also had significant condensation under the cap/wax as report in the forum,not really an issue but could be down the road.
