This Old Ale conjures up thoughts of classic sea fairing ports, there local pubs and the weathered fisherman that frequent them. In traditional style Curmudgeon is brewed with an intense focus on the malt bill creating a very strong, rich, malty characteristic and a sweetness indicative of its cousin the barleywine. We are especially proud of the balance in this beer making it deceptively smooth and drinkable at 9.8% alcohol by volume.
Editor’s Note - The 2006 bottled version has been aged in bourbon barrels.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2010
Hazy amber-brown topped by a thin ring of foam. Toasty, caramel malt aroma with some underlying fruits and grape skins. Sweet malts, raisins, and an earthy hop bitterness. Not bad.

Chalsk (1097) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2010
Pours a deep orange, brown haze with a thin soapy white head. Has an aroma of vanilla and dark fruit. Has a taste of licorice and dark fruit. Has a nice malty backbone. Pretty well balanced. Not too sweet. Could probably use a bit more hops, could use some more bitter. Bitter is very subtle. Alcohol comes through. My first stab at an old ale. Has a barleywine feel, but is less sweet and more dry.

olsvammel (4686) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2010
It poured a very thick and hazy dark dirty amber liquid with lots of stuff floating around in it. A very strong ale with a heavy sweetness and intense flavour of caramel, malt, leather, dried fruit, yeast and hops.

luttonm (3416) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2010
12oz Bottle. Tart leather, heavy malts. Sticky and lightly molasses sweet. Great. Smooth, unassuming but hugely flavorful. Tight, dark ruby pour without much head. Nose is brown suger and some pine. Great fresh hoppiness to this, very upfront. Not too flashy but really solid

JaBier (5928) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2010
Bottle shared by Rogueone. Clear amber pour with a thin tan head. Malty caramel nose with hints of smoke and alcohol. Peaty malt flavor with a boozy finish.

Bottle, thanks Rciesla. Brune pour. Well abv is hidden as well as in some other brews, but still can be drank pretty well. Very sweet and rich flavors, vanilla oak, etc. All i know is that it finished me off one night.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2010
Bottle: Poured a hazy reddish/purple color with a small off white head, nose of sweet malt, ripe fruit, and bourbon? Flavor is sweet, rich and malty, some alcohol, with a nice hop finish. Well done.

wxman (1613) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Pours a clean amber color with a significant off white head that provides sipping rings down the glass. Aroma is smokey roasted malt. Taste is sweet roasted malt, butter, maple and caramel. Noticable hop bitterness bite that also provides a grapefruit character to the taste. Mouthcoating and almost cloying, but well balanced. Alcohol warmth comes in after the swallow. A great old ale.

Dark amber appearance and a strong aroma greets those who pour this beer. It comes across as more of a sipping whiskey then a beer. Drink it slow and enjoy the caramel aroma as you taste the sweetness that come with the dregs of the blackstrap.Sip and enjoy.
