COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Gimp A love story! A wide open Old Ale, The Gimp gags up Alc.10.3% by Vol. and is bred to be stashed in a Dank dark cellar only to be brought out for your most “special” guests! This full-bodied Gimp gives off sweet scents of caramel and toffee and, as legend has it, warm sensations of malt balanced by low voltage doses of hops delivering a SHOCKER you’ll actually want to receive. Don’t keep The Gimp’s leash too tight, as he will mellow with age and become more experienced the longer he stays locked up in the cellar. Bring out The Gimp!

arkurzynski (1460) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle from JCB. Thanks! Murky brown red pour with fading off-white head. Nose is dark fruit, burnt caramel, dank grapefruit hopping and alcohol. Flavor is a woody/herbal grapefruit bitterness with some dark fruit, brown sugar, and caramel. A bit of a bitter alcohol bite. Lingering darkfruit, grapefruit bitterness, and booze. Light syrupy body. Solid, but could still use some age.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Sweet, boozy, with a fairly complex flavor profile. The sweetness overwhelms; perhaps it was smooth with age.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2013
Slutfest! Perhaps the perfect label and name for this party. Medium amber, clear, nice head. Raisin and caramel aroma. Flavor is a match, very rich, just a touch of dusty hops on the finish. Good, but I wish the hops hadn’t shown up.
