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.

"this is close to nailing the style right on the head. wonderful complex malty sweet aroma. flavor and feel are very nice, but not quite up to par with the smell due to the alcohol presence. roasted malt, plum sweetness. very good brew."
