I wonder if this is what Christmas in Old London tastes like. Clear rusty brown with cream colored head. Sweet chocolate, toffee, and raisins. Lots of biscuity, cracker, graham like malt. Pretty sweet from first sip to last drop. Perhaps a touch of bitterness like skin still clinging to a filbert. Not too much warmth on the sip; it's more mildly evident in the gullet. Rich but not necessarily complex, which is refreshing in this age of overintellectuliazing (sp?) (is that a word?) beers.

Pours dark amber with a thin tan head. Tastes a little malty with a little spice on the end. Nose is subdued chocolate. Good mouthfeel, maybe a little thin

Clear mahogany color with a tan film that reduces to a ring. Aroma has dark, caramel malt, dried fruits, mostly raisins. Taste follows with the caramel malt and brown sugar, light earthy bitterness on the finish. Light body and carbonation. Overall it's a decent but really simple old ale.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a reddish brown color with a small tan colored head. The aroma is almost all malt with some nuttiness. The taste is malt with some molasses and some earthy notes.

1/21/17...pours rich mahogany brown with a heady topper of white like foam. Cinnamon spiced malty nose. Raisins, plums, somewhat nutty. Taste is a mellowed malty sweetness with dark fruit layered throughout. Hazelnuts come through. Bittering is scattered. Quite complex and a tasty warmer. Not usually one for Old Ales but this one nailed it.

Ruddy brown with thin white head that leaves strong lacing. Light cherry malts and some alcohol in the aroma. Same elements carry to the taste, with some cinnamon, a little orange peel, vanilla and very light hop bitterness added to the mix. Somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Reminds me of a pleasant, Christmasy cough drop.
