Bottle says handcrafted in 2010 but these beers are known for aging so I'm assuming the quality has improved..? Hopefully?
Appearance - Pours a very dark reddish-brown color with a thick, creamy head that lingers for a minute. Leaves a thick, creamy and bubbly lacing.
Smell - Caramel, toffee, and dark fruits.
Taste - Very strong alcohol flavor that is so distracting it's hard to appreciate the other flavors. Caramel seems to be dominant, with a strong sweetness of dark fruits and maybe some vanilla. Can't forget to mention that it's VERY malty, also.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall - It was interesting to try such an old style of ale. It's definitely not something I would ever drink on for pleasure, only because of the strong alcohol flavor, but I can tell this beer was made right. The other flavors go together nicely.
