Might rate higher if it was my type of beer. That being said. Pours very dark with a lasting head.
Can smell the alcohol through a blend of brown sugar and molasses. Very sweet and hearty. Taste
too much of the alcohol and it becomes a distraction from the other flavors.

Pours dark brown with a large lasting head.
Nose shows golden syrup, booze, fruitcake, figs, brown sugar and cognac. Lovely.
Similarly rich flavours. More booze though, a little hot. Loads of golden syrup, bordering on a bit too sweet.
Lovely creamy carbonation and rich body.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: pours like a dark red ale with little lacing and head. No visible carbonation and 25% clarity.
S: strong chocolate presence, toast, cherry
T: Comes out the gates with an ABV you can taste. Sweet chocolate again that turns to some grains and finishing with some mile tart berries.
M: Medium-heavy with little carbonation
O: An interesting beer that is worth a try but nothing I could drink too much of. Stronger chocolate presence than I expected.

Serving Type: 22 ounce bomber poured into a tulip stem glass.

Appearance: Looks nice in the glass, dark brown with a creamy head with lots of tiny bubbles. The head dissipated fairly quickly, some lacing on the glass. Looks great in the glass.

Smell: Getting some toffee, vanilla aromas upfront, then the malts on the backend. The is the strongest aroma that I have smelled in an organic beer. I am getting some bourbon or rum smell up front as well, sweet smell that fades into a malt character. This is the first Old Ale that I have tried and I am not quite sure how to describe the sweetness, toffee, vanilla, rum, bourbon, it all smells there.

Taste: Sweet taste upfront similar to the smell, then some bitterness blending into a malt flavor, nice flavor. This is a nice sweet maltiness flavor in the beer, great taste, getting some bitterness but not overwhelming bitterness. I am surprised, this sat in my refrigerator for about 3 months before I tried it.

Mouthfeel: Nice creamy mouthfeel, light carbonation.

Overall: Admittedly, I am surprised, I have had several Eel River brews, Raven's Eye is my favorite, this is second. I am going to pick up at least another bottle to age. This is a beer that is well balanced, the sweetness though prevalent does not overwhelm the malt and bitterness.
