COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Pours deepest red copper with a shortlived off white head. Boozy aromas of sweet malt, plums, dried fruit, port... flavours follow suit, with oak, molasses... soft carbonation, and a thick, sweet body. Fine sipping ale.

The question was bourboun or rum as a second perspective of this ale? Yes bourbon barrels and yes a super stuff. Thanks Jan! D@BeerGeek

UPDATED: APR 27, 2016 I just LOVE this beatiful beer!

I pours hazy, dark amber/mahogny with a one finger high, beige head.

Nose: Caramel malt, brown sugar, syrup, fudge, biscuit, plum, molasses, oak and dried fruit. A really peasant nose!
Taste: Caramel, sweet cookies, malt, syrup, molasses, oak and plum.
Mouth: Full body and complex texture. Medium to high carbonation.
Smooth taste!

As I said - Beatiful!

Tognetta (621) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 28, 2015
Marrom turva, espuma de pouca formação, pouquíssima persistência. Aroma intenso maltado, caramelado, levemente defumado, alcoólico, uva passa. Paladar bastante próximo ao aroma, dulçor intenso, amargor de difícil percepção. Corpo licoroso, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste maltado, alcoólico, dulçor persistente. Ótima para harmonizar com queijo !

I have a problem with this type of beers. It’s sticky and bitter sweet in a bad way. Can’t notice any hops but plenty of head.
