Pours a very dark ruby brown and even though it was bottled 9/13/13 (almost a year) it still had an inch plus of tinted sticky head.
Smell is a typical old ale with no winter spices just molasses, English malts, and some subdued hop bitterness. I actually like the taste more than the bourbon version to me its like a lighter version of founders old ale without as much bitter molasses, very English bitter tasting.

Mouth feel was good medium bodied and slightly chewy.

Overall I was impressed not only for the taste but how well this beer hold up within a year possibly more. Well worth the dollar I paid for it at Beermuda clearing out their old stock.
