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!

Sometimes you have to take things into consideration when rating, not with this beer, its worth its lofty status. Dark fruits, caramel, toffee, beautifully melded into a velvety body. This beer is thick and you can tell it is expertly crafted. Dont pass this by, buy 3 and hold 2 back for a few years. Excellent brew.

Aromat: głwnie estrowy (wiśnia, aronia, śliwka), z dozą karmelu, chleba, melano, może nieco miodu. Drewno rwnież wyczuwalne, ale bez przesady. Alkohol nieźle ukryty.

Wygląd: barwa rubinowa, wydaje się klarowna, Piana beżowa, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i podobnie trwała.

Smak: spora słodycz, złamana kwaskowoscią, owoce ( w tym suszone), chleb, melano, alkohol. Goryczka w okolicach średniej plus, lekko drażniąca, ale delikatna. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i kwaskowy, lekko owocowy finisz nuta alkoholową. Spodziewałem się więcej.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7280) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with red highlights and a large creamy-soapy orange-brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet with raisins, plum, pear, brandy and molasses. The flavor was sweet with toasty malts, molasses, cherry, anise, raisin, fig, brandy, toffee and a touch of a medicinal presence. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Excellent.
