Enjoyed on tap at hopCat Grand Rapids
Appearance: dark redish,little head
Aroma: little aroma, malty, bourbon
Taste: begins very malty, then bourbon flavor takes over not an extremely complex ale, but very drinkable.

Had on tap at Crunchy's
A: Pours mahaghony with little head.

S: Bourbon and that old ale aroma

T: Bourbon upfront folowed by figs, raisins and some burnt sugar. Slightly acedic. Nice mild hop bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium body that could use more carbonation.

O: I really enjoyed this beer. Very drinkable.

Had this on-tap at HopCat Detroit's grand opening.

First sip I was thinking, "Hm. Good. Different... tastes like bourbon and barrel. But why was this $9 for a snifter?", but after it warmed, it really opened up and tasted a lot better. I haven't had a huge number of Old Ales, but this is one of the best beers I've had from Short's. Once the beer warms up a little bit it seems to get a little warmer, a dark fruit flavor comes through, and there's a great aftertaste on it. Awesome stuff.
