3.71/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Enjoyed in a tulip glass

A: Pours a hazy light amber color with a finger of fine white creamy head that lingers for a bit and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass
S: roasted malts are all im really able to pick up, here, overall not much to be found
T: whiskey in the very front then moves onto smoked wood and an interesting bourbon soaked kind of flavor, tons of depth, leaves a nice taste like fresh wood on the palate
M: medium carbonation, very silky and smooth, leaves the mouth sticky and also definitely dry
O: a real nice brew, complex and deep, alcohol presence is just enough to let you know it is there

Enjoyed in a tulip.

A: pours a orangey amber color with a small head that leaves little to no lacing.

S: not much to the nose, only smell a sweetly malt.

T: nice sweet malts with a woody finish.

M: very nice body, good carbonation. Great flavor and well balanced.

Overall, great tasting old ale.

Connecticut really had nothing going the day after Christmas so I decided to take a little ride. Poured into a Peekskill Brewery pint glass.

A) No real head....translucent brown.

S) Slight toffee, caramel and vanilla notes.

T) Again with the toffee, caramel and vanilla, slight on the hops...nice little boozy presence.

M) Just a bit thin.

O) I liked this and would definitely by again next year. This is a nice little brewery in a very scenic location.

Sampled at the International Great Beer Expo, Rock Hill, NY.

This is normally only available at their restaurant.

Pours a dark amber color. Fairly hazy. Good head, minor lacing. Smooth start at first sip but slightly bitter finish and a slight aftertaste. Good drinkability for an ale. Would probably order if I found myself at the Peekskill Brewery

Almost looks like a here. Thick cloudy copper yellow colored with a small white head.

Aromas of candied almonds, toffee, some dried fruits and a musty end.

A bit thin and light in body. Flavors are a bit weak as well. Toffee, biscuit, cereal, date and other non descript breach flavors.
