COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Schwarzbart (71) - 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

Bottle from Wegmans. Aroma is spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, malt, pine and hop. Taste is the same. A touch of yeast and alcohol. Some Belgian qualities to it. More hoppy than I would have thought. Good character. Definitely a warming winter brew. Similar to Brrr from Widmer.
