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.

Slightly sweet with some piney bitterness to balance it out. Has some really nice caramel flavors, molasses, maple syrup, and some slight dark fruit. Not overly sweet.

Pullo @ Systembolaget. Kaatuu snifteriin punaisen kuparisena ja hiven sameana, noin kahden sormen paksuisella ja kestävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksussa on sokerisuutta, alkoholia ja tynnyrin tuomaa puumaisuutta sekä vähemmän marjaisuutta ja vanilijaa. Maussa jatkuu sama linja, se alkaa puumaisudella ja marjaisella sokerisuudella, sitten iskee alkoholi ja lopussa kermaisempi vanilijaisuus ja lievä karamelli tulevat esiin. Suutuntuma on hyvin hyökkäävä, alkoholi tuo loppuun lämmittävyyttä. Melko viinainen sekametelisoppa, näin vahvalta oluelta odottaisi täyteläisyyttä ja lempeämpää maltaisuutta, nyt ilmeisesti kypsytys on ohentanut makua, muttei ole tuonut merkittävästi lisäarvoa.

@ Stordirren 15-9-14: lätt doft av kola. Smaken är mycket mjuk med söta toner av kola. Trevlig.

Flaska. Mahognyfärgad med ett stort lätt smutsat skum. Härliga dofter av karamell, vanilj, apelsin och läder. Smakinslag av karamell, vanilj, trä och alkohol. Mjuk munkänsla, men alkoholen bränner mer än värmer.

På flaska från systembolaget. Mörk bärnstensfärgad. Doftar sherry. Smakar syrligt äpple och sött på samma gång. En mild beska i eftersmaken.

Over the top toffee flavor...The aroma is very rich and malty. Taste is similar with a hint of booze. Perhaps a bit of age will mellow the flavor. It’s all the sweet rich character I like about an old ale. This is a good one.

On tap at Babajan. Pours a mahogony hue with a small off white head. Sweet aroma, dark syrup, spices, malts, big toffee note. The flavour is also super sweet, notes of dark syrup toffee, bit of coffee, vanilla, malts. Very sweet but with enough to back the sweetness. Big mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Long aftertaste of christmas candies and dark syrup. Really nice to me, but if you’re not a fan of sweet beer this is not for you.
