Our classic Olde Ale redefines the term "bull-bodied" with its deliverance of complex and firm malt flavor. A fine blend of British and American hops provides an even bitterness as this beer finishes with a warming alcohol flavor.

10/30/2014. On tap at the brewery. dark brown with a tan head. Malty caramel aromas, hints of booze, dark fruit with a sweet malty finish. Very good, but not something I could drink a lot of.

Transfer from BA review on 12-13-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a deep ruby color with a one finger off white head. The head faded over a moderate amount of time to leave a decent lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a mix of dark fruit aromas and some caramel with the dark fruit being mainly of a raisin and prune in nature. A light nutty, Christmas spice and boozy aroma round out the sweet aroma and create e nice smell overall. Taste – The taste begins with a malty and doughy flavor mixed with a strong raisin and prune flavor. Spice flavors come to the tongue quickly with some of the sweet transitioning from the dark fruit to a more caramel nature. Flavors of spice and some alcohol then start coming to the tongue more toward the middle and the end. A light bitter hoppy flavor also comes to the end and leave a nice warming flavor to be left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to full side with a carbonation level that is average . This feel is very nice for the lightly boozy, malty, spicy and bitter flavors of the brew, letting all to be detected, but yet keeping any from overwhelming the flavors of the brew. Overall – A quite delicious and nice warming winter ale. Quite nice.

Dark brown body, medium to thin light tan head, spotty lacing. Caramel, light roast, toast, and earth. Traces of dark fruits. Medium bodied, moderate sweetness, appropriate carbonation. Pleasant but lacking complexity and depth.
