COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an old ale/stock ale. Old ales are remnants of a period when most ales were strong and somewhat dark. Today’s versions are wide ranging. In general, however, they can be described as ales of higher than average strength that benefit greatly from some aging, are gently hopped, and that showcase a malt base. Some are seasonal brews. Aging may be the key contributor to the character of old ale, as they can develop a complex profile with some oxidative or wine-like notes.

One of my favorite beers they brew. Maybe its just my style but it is filling without being filling and flavorful without being overbearing, More beers should just be good without being cluster-f***s. Ok so I like those beers too but this beer offers a drinkable yet substantial, enjoyable, clean plated opportunity. Drink it if your worth it.

Large glass (20+ oz) on tap at the brewery tap room. Dark amber beer with a beige head. Nice malty and hoppy aroma. Excellent flavor with plenty of malts and hops. Very drinkable and tasty, and an extra point for 7% abv. My favorite of the current lineup, but it’s a fall seasonal so it won’t be around for long. Certainly not at the rate it was going out the door in growlers last weekend! Excellent.

Ibrew2or3 (6523) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2009
On tap at Bold City. It poured clear copper with tan head. The aroma has some roasty and sweet malts mixing with some earthy cherry like sensations. The taste has a smooth sweet maltiness mingling with lesser amounts of malt roastiness and citrus to earthy hops. Tasty stuff.

cbfobes (2153) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2012
On tap at brewery, pours a clear copper with a very thin head, the aroma has a nice amount of caramel and bread with a touch of booze as well, the flavor has a nice backbone of malt and caramel with some dark fruit in the finish as well, kind of warms you up as it goes down. Mouthfeel was pretty solid and smooth, not bad.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2012
12/7/12. Growler from the brewery. Deep brown pour with a nice light khaki head that fades to a ring but laces in nice rings. Sweet burnt caramel aroma with a touch of alcohol and dryness. Sweet entry with another small sense of booze and a lingering dry bitterness. A touch thin. Not bad!

PorterPounder (5199) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Jacksonville, Fl. - on tap at the brewery tap room. My pick out of the 10 beer sampler for a full pint. Pours a medium copper with a soft white head that leaves good lacing. Good caramel and chocolate in the aroma. Flavor has a nice earthy quality to it with some noticeable chocolate, toffee and a hint of citrusy hoppiness. Mouthfeel is rich and thick. Best of the sampler - glasses were too small to be able to provide a adequate sample in my opinion.

GT2 (7895) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Pint on tap at the brewery. Pours a nice, slightly cloudy amber with a one finger white head that leaves very good lacing. Aroma is rye and caramel malt. Taste is sweet and refreshing with toffee, caramel, and rye notes. Some bready malt too. Good creamy body. An excellent session beer.

Pours a burnt copper with thin head and good lacing and retention. Aroma is caramel malts. Taste is caramel malts and toffee. Some bitterness appears right at the end. Fizzy carbonation and finishes clean.

Tap@ the brewery. pours copper, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some burnt caramel. Flavor, roasted / dark malts, some caramel that seems to come out and adding to the sweetness. Medium carbonation with some spices and hints of hops. Palate seemed to retain some light dark fruit aspects.
