I tried this on tap at Sturges Speakeasy, served chilled in a Nonic.

The color is a dark brown with ruby highlight with translucent clarity and thin tan head. The smell is a mix of slight spice with mild nutty aroma and slight dried fruit quality with somewhat toasted malt accent. The feel is good with moderately full body with a spiced texture and firm malt base with moderate carbonation and warming dry finish.

The taste has a spice flavor up front which could just be hop spiciness and mild caramel in the middle with a toasted grain flavor and a moderate amount of alcohol in the flavro with subtle yeast adding some dried fruit almost raisin-like flavor with semi-dry finish. Overall this is a very good holiday Old ale, pretty smooth for the most part, but a lot of alcohol in the taste as it warms up-worth a try
