COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Bottle from Bier Koning.

Strong nose of red apple, caramel and dark fruit. Well hidden alcohol.

Well balanced flavor profile, but wish it was slightly richer and more complex. Just doesn’t have the flavor intensity I desire in a strong, sweet beer. Overall though, I still found it to be a solid beer. I enjoyed it.

Bottled 250ml. -Courtesy of and great thx to Papsoe for sending me a bunch of Amager beers to celebrate my 5K milestone. Brown coloured, minimal white head, dry wood nose. Heavy dried fruits, caramel and strong wood presence with sharp notes of alcohol. Good one but really nothing more than good.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 12, 2013
12/05/2013 250ml bottle (#1696, BB 2020), thanks Jesperhammer! Ambrata intensa, riflessi miele, schiuma virtualmente assente. Naso molto ricco, sentori di liquirizia, caramello, tostato, frutta matura, vaniglia, alcol. In bocca è meno impressionante, ben equilibrata ma un po’ insipida, caramello, zucchero di canna, finale amarognolo, piatta e un po’ corta. Corpo pieno, praticamente piatta. Molto buona, da bere in piccole dosi in compagnia di un bel dolce.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 18, 2013
Found this little goodie in the cellar - had forgotten everything about it. Nice discovery. A dark brown pour with No head what so ever. Almost looks like a coke. The aroma is huge and very complex dominated of sweet notes. You sense apples and wooden notes on top of a rush of brown sugar. Some chocolate and a hint of tobacco too. Due to No carbonation you also get a palate that a rather watery with a little picking feeling from the alcohol. The taste is nicely balanced between sweet and bitter notes with the warm alcohol feeling in the end. Chocolate and oranges, the apples from the calvaen barrels comes out. Lovely balanced after taste where the alcohol not gets too dominating, but is gently followed by a malty sweetness and a low key bitterness. Truely a winter warmer
