pours a dark amber with small off white head. aroma is faint but my nose may not be working right at the moment. the molasses comes through alot in the taste very malty with some hops, but you really gotta look for them. good brew and my first from founders, not sure it was worth the 14 dollars for a four pack, but worth trying atleast once.

Amber-orange, large tan head which persists a little. Aroma malt, caramel, butterscotch, wood. Full body, some alcohol present. Flavor is sweet and malty and brown sugary but with a kind of tannic background to prevent it from being cloying. Interesting and excellent for sipping.

Pours brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is malts and maple syrup.taste is nice. Sweet syrupy malts up front, chalk in the middle, and a significant bitterness in the finish. Flavors, though not overly specific, are balanced and blended well.

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 !

Pour amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, and toffee. Flavor is full of caramel with hints of chocolate, vanilla and wood with some hints of bitterness as well. Pretty good.

Midway put on a 2012 keg in celebration of ACBW. I have a couple at home, but they are destined for a trade. Pours brown with decent head and fabulous lacing. Smell is more grassy than I would have expected. The sweet molasses flavor carries much of the weight for this old ale. My own conventional wisdom figured the palate would be thick and viscous, but it had lively carbonation. Good beer, a little sweet for my hoppy American sensibilities.

A good Old Ale from Founders. compares somewhat to Third Coast, but has a more fruity finish to it...not so much hoppy.....have to see how the rest of the bottles age in comparison to the first.
