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.

Funky Old Time was aged for 18 months in two American oak red wine barrels with wild yeast/brewing bacteria.

Theydon_Bois (16623) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle split at the Manny G tasting, big thanks to Manny for yet another Westbrook offering, 28/06/14.Opaque chestnut brown with a moderate beige swirl and edgeing that doesn’t stay around for long. Nose is dank wood, boozey tones, yeast esters, dates, acidic vibes, bitter dark fruit skins, light brett characteristics. Taste comprises dark fruit peel, apricot, spice, light booze, bitter orange, light brett and damp booze stained wood - but pretty subtle, funky earthy licks. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light acidity in the close. Decent enough Flemish Red but as with the Grumpy - just lacks a little depth when measured against the ABV.
