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!

Ibrew2or3 (6843) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2013
22oz bomber, courtesy of markwise, pours with a murky deep mahogany looking body that has amber edges and supports a sixty second tan head. The aroma offers up nice musty sweet dark fruity esters, sweet caramel, thick sugary sweet malts and then a decent barleywine booziness near the end of the draw. The taste starts smooth with a sweet soft base of malts and caramel malts that support prunes, cherries and ripe figs. These notes slide toward the finish with an old school mildly harsh straight up booziness that makes me reminisce of the boozy old school 9% barleywines. I love barleywine.
