Danish: Når du varmer dig ved denne Old Ale kan du roligt glemme alt om, hvad du troede øl var. Old Man’s Ale er med sin stort set fraværende kulsyre og sine varme toner af træ og velmodnet frugt en øl, der skal nydes i fredfyldte omgivelser – gerne foran pejsen fra et stort cognacglas. Old Man’s Ale har ligget fire måneder på calvados fade fra en af Frankrigs mest velrenommerede producenter Domaine Familial Louis Dupont, og træet giver øllets dets bløde vanilletoner, mens amerikansk Chinook humle tilføjer tilstrækkelig bitterhed til at skabe balance overfor den høje maltsødme og den markante og varmende alkohol. Old Man’s Ale er i udpræget grad en øl til de stille og eftertænksomme stunder - en øllets cognac.
Holdbarhed: 15 år.
Bør nydes ved 16-20 grader C

English: Forget what you think beer is all about when being warmed by this Old Ale. Forget the lack of carbon dioxide and the warm notes of wood and matured fruit require that this Old Man’s Ale is to be enjoyed in peaceful surroundings – preferably in front of the fireplace served in a big cognac glass. Old Man’s Ale has aged for four months on calvados barrels from one of the most prominent French producers; Domaine Familial Louis Dupont, and the wood grant soft tones of vanilla while the American Chinook hops add sufficient bitterness in order to balance the high malt sweetness and the significant and warming alcohol. Old Man’s Ale is indeed a beer for the quite and thoughtful moments – the cognac of beers.

Bottle courtesy of Ang’ (cheers Ang’!) shared at Moncada Tap Room, Ladbroke Grove, West London, Friday 7th October 2016 Wow what an unbelievable nose, quite amazing, reminds me of Gales Prize Old Ale, it’s beefy there is Oxo, it’s leathery, it’s amazing, stunning. However in the mouth like many an old beer (this is 7-8 years old I believe) but it’s broken down, the Promise of what the nose was suggesting failed to materialise, it’s still quite good, it’s warming, it’s fine in the mouth but does not meet the expectation that the nose promised at all. Ok. A10 A3 T6 P3 Ov14 3.6

Sigmund (6779) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2015
250 ml bottle, from the brewery. Batch #86. BB end of 2020. ABV is 14%. Dark brown colour, hardly any head nor any carbonation. Aroma of oak, malts, calvados and molasses. Warming mouthfeel. Very oaky and alcoholic sweet flavour, notes of calvados, brown kandij sugar and dark dried fruits. The total lack of carbonation is not to my liking.
