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.

markwise (4428) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle courtesy of my SC buddy. Cheers, my friend! Pours a hazy brown-orange with a small white head. Nose is big apple brandy, some wood, some fudge, some fruit component, some overripe fruit, booze, and some more brandy. Flavor is a nice blend of brandy, sweet malt, fruit, yeast, and a chocolate component as well. Boozy and brandy-forward, but enjoyable as hell; one of the best beers I have had from Westbrook.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Session 1. Pours clear, red-brown with a tight, tan cream head. Rich, deep aroma of ripe fruits, bread and toffee. Big sweet flavor with rich sugars, toasty bread, dried fruits, toffee. Full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Moderate warmth to end, very sweet, lightly syrupy, with candied fruits, bread, some further toffee. Big and ballsy. Heavy stuff but I was really into it.

Bottle thanks to Icehawk ! Pours a deep caramel brown color with a thin layer of eggshell foam. The nose is sweet boozy caramel, vanilla, cola, baked apple, touches of chocolate and a bit of earth barrel character. The palate follows the nose nicely with very smooth sweet dark fruit, dates, chocolate, flat cola and caramel. Hints of earthy complexity, licorice, moss and leather. Yum... could be amazing with more carbonation.
