4.29/5 rDev +8.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a dimpled pub mug, a dark red brown with a light tan head that lingers leaving some lacing, clear
S: sweet malt, caramel, toffee, bread
T: sweet and sour malt flavors, subtle coffee, caramel, dark fruit, raisins, robust earthyness, slight spice, some hop bitterness at the end
M: thick and rich, viscous, more carbonation than expected
O: Flavors are more subtle than American old ales. The focus is on malt with the hops only coming through at the finish. It's a filling and satisfying beer.

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!
