12 oz. bottled purchased in the greater Washington D.C. area in mid-2/13, poured into a 3Fs Teku long-stemmed glass, drank one bottles 2/20/13 over ~two-three hours.

A: 5.0 - beautiful amber-brown coloration, minimal clarity/opaque whitish frothy 1 finger head dissipates very quickly into small glass lacing, barely perceptible alcohol legs

S: 4.25 -bubble gum, wood, bubble gum, wood, bubble gum, wood,....maybe a Belgian yeast?!?

T: 4.5 - no bittnerness, all bubblegum

M: 4.25 - light-medium body, low carbonation

O: 4.5 - it's good but not great, welcome to the world of the old ale....maybe more to follow outside of the political intrigue! (650 characters)

A bottle into a Weyerbacher tulip glass. I have not had a brewers select in quite some time and i missed whiskey. Glad to see this is an old ale as it's a bit nippy out tonight.

Once the cap was pryed some smoke appeared, blowing that away, the liquid comes into the glass a very bold mahagony color ooking brown and red up towards the light. The bubbles form a loosely coiled off tan foamed cap up top that sticks around for a few minutes. It eventually dies leaving a dead looking beer and no lace. Smell is very English forward with an abundance of English malt, scents of caramel, banana, slight clove. Chocolate arrises and a touch of smoke. The nose is not terribly complex, but serves it's purpose and shows it's English origin. A this fresh stage about a month from bottling there is the slightest bit of hops that make it in the taste leaving a spicy earthy hit on the tounge. Other than that malt dominates, Toast, roast, chocolate, caramel, banana, spice, fruit. These integrate nicely but a a year in the bottle may yield perfect results. Body is approaching full, carbonation is low, which I guess is on par for the style. A good old ale, a bit more authentic than a lot of american versions on a small scale. (1,223 characters)

Pour is transparent blood red with a tan head. Nose has a messy grain and sweet malt. Candied sugar, roasted caramel and brown sugar, and some black cherries. Taste is messier grain and a faint metallic note. A touch less sweetness, cooked caramel and brown sugar. Medium body, lower carb, chewy chalky finish. (310 characters)
