COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “Old Time” series is a collaboration with The Charleston Beer Exchange. The base beer (a Belgian-style strong dark ale) for all four Old Times was originally brewed in July 2011, then aged in a variety of oak barrels, some with and some without a blend of brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus.

Brandy Old Time was aged for 18 months in three Laird’s apple brandy barrels without any wild yeast/brewing bacteria.

jmgreenuk (4794) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2013
Tap at Mikkeller and Friends. Poured a dark mahogany colour with a broken off white head. The aroma is big fruit and alcohol and I even swear there is a hint of Marmite yeastyness too. The flavour is big rich, fruity, red berries, brandy alcohol. It’s 11%, but the alcohol bitterness doesn’t dominate. A truly superb beer.
