COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed in 2005 as the first in our annual Decadence series, AleSmith Olde Ale follows the tradition of classic British-style Old Ales. This rich, malt-forward ale showcases soft notes of currants and dried fruit along with complex dark sugars, all of which are balanced by a subtle bitterness derived from the addition of traditional English hops. AleSmith Olde Ale is ready to be enjoyed now or it can be aged upwards of twenty years to further enhance its amazing depth of flavor. A hearty ale designed to please Bacchus himself!

lusikka (7793) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2016
750 ml bottle. 2015 vintage. Thanks veliemboys! Pours a dark brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of strong sweet bread, some dried fruits and caramel. Flavour of heavy sweet bready malts, grassy bitterness, dried fruits, caramel and astrigent. Full bodied. Alcohol burns. Not my favourite.

olio (9939) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2016
75 cl bottle. 2015 vintage.
Pours clear dark red color with a small head. Aroma is quite resinous and piney, caramel malts and some grassy hops. Flavor is resinous hoppy, malty, caramel sweetness, honey, some oak notes, strong carbonation, molasses. Good but I was expecting more smoothness and maybe more layers.

Taste is sweetish, caramely and malty with some berries, toffee, syrup and berries. Finish is caramely, earthy and sweetish with some malts, toffee, berries and hints of ripe fruits. Feels like a mix of a heavy amber ale and an English barley wine. Quite a heavy slow sipper.

Reynolds314 (3421) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 11, 2016
This beer needs barrel aging. Brown color with tan head. Aroma is raisins, bread, caramel, and prune. Taste is just a lot of raisin with moderate sweetness for the high abv. Tough to drink a lot of but still decent.

onceblind (8891) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Deep plummy copper hue under a thin light tan head. Rich lightly boozy dark malty English aroma with some date and fig in there. Smooth and dark flavor thats got that old English malty boozy touch to it, a light hint of date and fig, and a warm semisweet malty finish. A bit simplistic and has a lasting alcohol phenolic finish.

Lele (526) - Padova, ITALY - OCT 1, 2016
Aspetto: mogano scuro e limpido. Schiuma marroncina, abbondante, fine e abbastanza persistente. A Roma: intenso, chiari sentori liquorosi, caramellati e legnosi. Gusto: decisi sentori liquorosi e di Passito, abbondante e caramello, legnoso, abbondanti frutta secca e frutta a guscio. Corpo decisamente strutturato. Carbonizzazione medio bassa. Birra veramente fenomenale!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
