4.22/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Serving Type Sampled: 12 oz. brown crown top bottle, without a date.
Appearance: Dark slightly hazy mahogany in color. Little in the way of head, the little it had when poured faded away quickly leaving basically nothing on top.
Smell: Very complex, Dried fruits, maybe raisins or prunes. Caramel and hazelnuts.
Taste: Much like the nose I taste dried fruits. I also get some diacetyl, giving a very mild buttery flavor, quite pleasant. I also taste a tinge of chocolate and brown sugar. The earthy hops create a perfect bitter balance.
Mouthfeel: Light to Medium in body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Great. This is an extremely drinkable old ale. Very nice with a quality stogie!

As I first poured this ale into my pint glass, I was under the impression this was going to be a forgettable beer. I took a swig, and as I set down the glass on the desk, I remember thinking my suspicions were confirmed. The taste started bitter, as you would expect any ale to deliver (a little too bitter, if I am to be honest). But, as I continued working at my desk, my taste buds would not let me forget the lingering bitterness that gave way to a sweet finish. I found myself reaching for the glass, taking another sip. As this deep red ale hit my tongue a second time, I realize that this beer holds a quaint little secret! Once again, I set the glass down on the desk, but, unlike the first time, I have a new respect for this delicious ale. Paying more attention to the flavor this time, I realize that this brew has a creamy, sweet caramel flavor, with a very nice lingering fruity undertone - well balanced with a mild bitterness. By the time I finish the glass, this "forgettable" beer has me craving another. Quite a pleasant surprise, I will not soon be forgetting this premium ale!
