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!

wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Tasted on 1/19/14 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours a very dark auburn that lets just a bit of light through with an average beige head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is bread, toffee, and caramel malt with a roasted note and just a bit of hops bitterness. The flavor is a bit more bitter and dry than the nose suggested, but it is still all about the caramel, toffee, and bread malt with the bitterness coming through with a bit of hops and some roast. The body is full with average carbonation and a long roasted bitter and malty finish.

slowrunner77 (10131) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Aroma slightly fruity and herbal. Obviously malt heavy but not obviously an old ale. Enjoyable, but like a lot of Sweetwater beers, not great. Shows the abv but was pleasant enough. My namesake beer after running my first 5k after 2 hip surgeries.

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Year old bottle pour of deep brown with a small dissipating head. Aroma of huge sweet toffee and toasted barley. Aroma of big sweet caramel malt that packs a rich punch. Very smooth and oily on the tongue with a sweet tangy finish. Overall a very potent rich old style ale and catches up with you. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from AlexFields, it looks like nasty brown sewage, smells like malt and weird earth dirt. surprisingly it tastes like a barley wine without any hops which I guess is okay if you’re into that sort of thing.
