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.

Dark chestnut color, slight head. Roasted malt and coffee aromas with background hops and alcohol notes. Moderate body. OK, but not their best effort.

Thanks James. Ruby red with sizable head. Very malty with lots of maple syrup and toasty waffles. Woody. Honestly liked it.

From NOTES. A: Roasted malt, caramel sweetness, mild booze, slight hop presence yet smells really boozy. A: Pours a reddish dark brown with a very nice light brown head. T: Warm and sweet, not spectacularly so, but a little bit of the same molasses and raisin taste. Not too strong, but also not enough to be particularly memorable. P; Full bodied and very smooth with little carbonation. O: This is a pretty decent beer, but not great. Some good malt flavors, but a little too much licorice for my liking.

I just missed it this year for their Christmas in July promotion but I remember it very well. It is one of my favorite beers. Warning find a safe place to drink this beer because it will sneak up on you.

Schwarzbart (72) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Pours a half finger, tan, creamy head. Dark brown color with a reddish tone. Smells of molasses, dried cherries, caramel, sugar and some faint nuttiness. On the palate it is medium-full bodied and creamy tight. It has a solid malt base that's on the sweeter side that's making me think of cherry Ludens. Backed up with peat, earthy hops and nutty in the back. This beer is solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Great winter warmer. Subtle spices deep flavors of malts and some barley. Sweetness is light and finished warm like promised. Plus benefits the local wolf preserve. You can?t go wrong. Tap

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, dark brown, nice tan head and decent lancing on the glass. Aroma of malts, caramel and some dark fruits. Taste is consistent and bit of roasted malts, some fruit, sweet caramel. Definitely a warmer... Enjoyable and quite interesting. (#800thrating, #hellyeah)
