look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Cola brown with garnet highlights against the light. Quite cloudy. Small head with nearly no retention and flecks of lacing left on the glass.

Ample caramel/toffee malt with notes of dried dark fruit, cinnamon, wood, leather and tobacco/earthy hops. Alcohol is evident but complements the aroma.

Toffee and brown sugar malt with prunes and dried cherries. Hops are earthy with tobacco and pine, bitterness is mild with a bit of anise and coffee grounds in the aftertaste.

Alcohol is pretty well hidden and complements the flavors well. Body is a bit more sessionable for an old ale and medium/active carbonation helps it along. Surprisingly has some nice drying to the finish.

Not the most complex or layered old ale but it is balanced, flavorful and sessionable despite the ABV. My only regret is not having tried it sooner, good one Avery.
