3.03/5  rDev -15.4%

Got this in a box this evening a quick chill and it was ready to go. Thanks Corey for sending this one my way.

A – Slight haze, brownish with an orange hue. Nice 2 finger tan colored head that lingered for quite a while.

S – Got alcohol up front. Some caramel sweetness and small hints of oak are present.

T – Sweet malt / caramel are up front and dominate then some alcohol mixed with the oak on the back end.

M – A warm burn of alcohol, medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O – Nothing fancy a good sipper that after warming up slightly was pretty decent.

2.75/5  rDev -23.2%

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

Pours a cloudy orange-brown with more than 1 finger of thick tan head. The head is durable, but turns a less appealing chunky with reduction.

Has the aroma of an oak-aged sour ale with a good bit of malt and a hint of spruce. Higher ABV becomes more evident with warming.

T: Plenty of oak flavoring; really too much of it for my tastes and too much given the strength of the other flavor components. Those other components include a bit of prune and over-ripe dark fruit, yeast, and a hint of charcoal. Starts sweet but ends sour. Both sour and bitter components linger on in the aftertaste.

M: Medium-full body; good carbonation; creamy smooth.

O: I approached this with trepidation, having opened a bottle just a few days earlier that I suspected had gone bad. It was a drain pour. This was much better but still a little challenging, in part due to the resemblance to the spoiled bottle. Eventually, it proved to be interesting and near enjoyable, if a bit too sour for my taste.

7.9% eh? That seems a bit low... No matter.

On tap @ Barley Oak.

Pours a tawny coppery color, hazy, with a cream/yellow colored finger of head. Aroma was earthy, with a pronounced malt sweetness and dark fruits. Slight caramel. A bit more earthy spice notes on the taste, with those medium/dark fruitiness and malty caramel. No real booze notes on either the aroma or taste, so maybe this is a milder Old Ale. It's creamy and upper medium bodied. Slight carbonation.

Not amazingly stylized, but it's still tasty and drinkable.

Poured into a Dogfish signature snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a reddish brown color with a 1/2 inch light tan head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a good amount of surface foam. Lacing tries, but doesn't hold up much.

S- Booze fume that's slightly off-putting with faint sweet malts in the back.

T- The booze is more toned down in the flavor which allows the toasty malts to make their way to the front and be known. Still pretty sweet and even has a vegetable vibe going on which is kind of odd but somehow works in the scheme of things. Some hop bitterness lingers in the aftertaste.

M- Quite smooth considering the high amount of ingredients. Very little burn, very little bitterness (all things considered) and not too heavy. This is actually where the beer really shines. Medium carbonation.

O- Not amazing, but not too shabby either. My first try by this brewery and I'm quite satisfied.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into an imperial pint.

This beer pour out a hazy red-brown with a finger of head that retains and laces well. The aroma is sweet, malty, and very heavy on dark fruits. There's an apparent alcohol twang here as well. The taste doesn't stray from the aroma at all. Sweet malts, lots of dark fruits, a bit of alcohol. The finish does have a nice bit of tartness that helps round out the sweetness assault. The mouthfeel is thick and nicely carbonated, and the drinkability is average for the style. Overall, it's a good old ale. Nothing outstanding, but it's not a bad buy.

Bottle to Snifter
12 oz

Purchased from Total Wine Tampa for $2.79

App- A murky mix of orange and amber yellows and browns. A small one finger head with some good cling as well.

Smell- Lush citrus with some caramel malty undertones. Some whispy booze notes as well.

Taste- Nice blended mix of malty and sweet. This one is an old ale with a certain flavor I can't put my finger on. Creme fraisch? Walnuts? It's something but just stumped.

Mouth- A very low/medium body with a medium carbonation. Creamy, lush and a tad nutty on the finish.

Drink- Enjoyable, creamy and layered with sweetness. It was a tad different from what I was hoping for but shouldve bought one more.

Poured a slight hazy Pumpkin orange. Aroma was mildly roasty with small hints of bourbon and a touch of vanilla. Flavors were very woody and dry with a touch of Alcohol. Lingering bitter finish, lots of wood/earthiness. Mouth feel was pleasantly full with light carbonation. There was a thin layer of foam on top, that lasted the whole glass, it made it creamy with every sip. Not bad, I would like to find more from this brewery.
