Smell is truly magnificent. Mainly deep, fruity alcohol that is reminiscent of port or sherry. Pour is deep brown, but with some very substantial red highlights. I’d like to see a bigger head on the beer, but the style, the age and the alcohol simply aren’t going to produce it so we’ll have to live with it.
Excellent dry alcoholic finish follows the fruit and fig start. A delicious sipper.
A first class Old Ale, rapidly becoming one of my favorite styles.
