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.
Editorís Note - The 2006 bottled version has been aged in bourbon barrels.

Fin (9289) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Bottle from Beer Gonzo consumed at home Monday 19th October 2015. Pours reddy brown with a light beige head. Big boozy nose. Strong toffee taste but the booziness shows again, real punch. Big beer but very likeable the barrel ageing works but after a while you feel that itís a bit much. The sweetness is fine, molasses showing well. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3
