Danish: Brygmester og direktør i Brøckhouse Allan Poulsen bryggede for fem år siden en Old Ale hjemme i sin kælder i Gadevang, hvor Brøckhouse startede. Den var uhyre populær. Blandt andet var ølguruen Michael Jackson helt pjattet med den. Mange ølentusiaster har siden spurgt efter den, så derfor har Allan Poulsen besluttet, at den skal brygges igen. Brøckhouse Old Ale er en overgæret øl på 6,5 procent. Det er en blanding af ny øl og øl, der har lagret i op til to år. Den lange lagring tilfører Old Ale en tone af sherry. Øllen har en dejlig mørk rødbrun farve og et kraftigt skum. Den har en eksotisk duft fra de varme lande af koriander/nelliker, et strejf af peber og af modne frugter. Brøckhouse Old Ale har en tydelig smag af ristet malt og mørkt rugbrød. Koriander/nelliker tilføjer den det eksotiske pift. Bør serveres ved 10-12 grader. Kan f.eks. serveres sammen med tapas.

English: Five years ago head rewer and Managing Director Allan Poulsen brewed an Old Ale in his basement and it became extremely popular. The beer-Guru Michael Jackson became infatuated by this ale during a visit to Denmark. Since then a large number of beer enthusiasts have been asking for it. That is why Allan Poulsen decided to brew it once again. Brøckhouse Old Ale is top-fermented containing 6,5% alcohol. It is a mixture of new ale and ale stored for up to two years. The long storage adds a note of sherry to the Old Ale. This ale has a wonderful maroon colour and a thick head. It contains exotic perfumy accents from far away lands, cloves, coriander, a touch of pepper and ripened fruit. Best served at 10-12 degrees celsius. Goes well with tapas and anti pasti.

Roughly foamy reddish brown ale with distinct caramel tones in the aroma. Hard Roasted malt adds flavor and good mellow sweetness with hints of fruit, caramel and a little chocolate in the final.
