New brewery in the industrial part on Lansing, about 10 beers on tap including a barrel aged old ale.

apperance: dark brown

smell: carmel, bourbon

taste: carmel, bourbon

mouthful: sticky thick

overall: a very good barrel aged old ale only served at the brewery, would have bought a growler if they would have let me.

Rich red wine tannins balance the dark chocolate bitterness and hints of tobacco. Very unique beer. Vanilla comes through and highlights the oak. Rich body with nice balance.

Shared by leftyhyzer at a NWI tasting

A - Dark brown with light chocolate accents. No head. Light carbonation on the sides

S - This is a good strong nose that has a good booziness to it from the bourbon mixed with caramel, vanilla, and light marshmallow.

T - Chocolate up front with light vanilla and marshmallows. As the beer moves on, the bourbon comes through that gives this a warming presence and strong oak that continue throughout. This beer has some good complexity and a nice balance between bourbon and sweeter vanilla, marshmallow and caramel.

MF - Medium body with slight stickiness to it. Good warming presence on the back end

O - This is a really good barrel aged beer that has a great barrel presence. It is also well balanced between the sweetness and the barrel. It also reminded me slightly of a lighter Brandy Vanilla DL and a bit like BA 4D. Great beer from a newer brewery

This beer BLEW me away, I have no idea why it's listed as an Old Ale though, it was like a fudgebomb imperial stout, and it was AMAZING.

Edited February 7th 2016.
Side by side of a 2014 and 2015 bottle

2015 was a lot more barrel upfront with a spicy finish. Hints of dark fruits with a strong taste of alcohol very evident on the backend despite being a lower ABV when compared to the 2014. (10.5% ABV vs 11.3% ABV) Poured a dark hue of brown compared to the almost black hue of the 2014

2014 the barrel was a step down but not in a bad way. Still had that nice bourbon sweetness. Much smoother mouthfeel with lower carbonation (propably from cellaring) Alcohol was present but not in your face, and came more as a slight warming sensation on the way down.

Much preferred the 2014 and will grab a couple more new bottles to see how they hold up next to each other in the coming year. Overall a very solid beer, and one I will continue to pick up whenever I am back home visiting family.
