Pours a dark chestnut brown. Small lighter brown head 1/5". Aroma is quite boozy, but it also throwns a dense layer of rum cake malt booziness, chocolate, earthiness, wet wood, tobacco and wet leaves.

Taste takes those smells and puts a warm sherry like presence throughout the first few sips, it takes about 20% of the bottle to get accustomed to this. Molasses and raisins, the unsweetened variety. The amounts imperialized toffee and lesser caramel is not too damn high but it makes you think about it. You're not breathing fire but you can feel some of the heat on your tongue. Has that dense ass brick feel of a loaf of dark bread with booze dumped in the punch bowl.

In the right scene, these can be nice to chew on. A treat, but nothing I'm ever going to want to have multiples of in a sitting.

2013 vintage
12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep brown with some light creeping through, very thin head that disappears almost immediately

S- smells of burnt caramel/toffee, molasses, rum soaked raisins, fruit cake, leather, tobacco, soy sauce & cardboard. Oxidization is definitely settling in

T- big caramel sweetness up front consumes the entry, quickly followed by melted caramel/toffee, rum soaked fig & raisin, black cherry, even a bit of sherry. Bready maltiness gives notes of brown bread with molasses. Just a hint of oxidization gives a bit of soy sauce on the finish, but lingers with more caramel, dark fruit & brandy-like notes

M- medium body with low carbonation gives just a bit of foamy mouthfeel that coats the mouth with a thick and viscous finish, abv hidden well

O- super complex with tone of caramel/dark fruit sweetness througout. Oxidation starting to set in, this may have been at it's prime at around two years

Traded for this one some time ago and took it along on a trip to Ocean Blue resort in the Dominican Republic because their beer sucks there....This was amazing! Tasty chocolate and caramel notes. Didnt taste anything like any other Old Ale that I have had before. Really enjoyed this!
