COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Caramel and toffee notes abound in this deep copper-colored American Barleywine-style ale alongside toasted malt and a hint of ripe dark fruits. Old Numbskull showcases malt sweetness, intense American hops, and an aggressive bitterness. Extremely well-balanced, the full-bodied mouthfeel and assertive hop profile leads into a deceptively smooth finish. Old Numbskull can be enjoyed now or laid down for years to come.

Luvystypotables (1967) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Aroma of plums, toffee and caramel, pours a hazy copper color. A great taste of fruit, caramel and malt, full body with a fermented fruit and booze finish.

rougeau13 (3015) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Bottle from Spec’s. Deep dark mahogany with a milky cream colored head with light lacing. Aroma of fig, caramel, grass, white cake, and a hint of apple. Taste is sweet caramel and dark fruit and bread and a fair amount of bitterness. Alcohol is pretty well integrated, but there’s no doubt it’s there. Medium-full bodied and quite smooth. Nice.

750ml bottle. Dark amber body with a low head. Dried dark fruits, caramel, toffee, pine, biscuit. Hint of lactose towards finish. Noticable alcohol presence.

ignorant (113) - madrid, SPAIN - AUG 29, 2016
In the glass it has a dark coppery amber color with a beige, creamy and lasting foam. Roasted notes on the nose, cake, candy with fruity nuances and slightly milder hops and alcohol appreciated. In the mouth it is silky but dry, bitter aftertaste. Does not hide very well integrated alcohol which include shades of caramel, biscuit and some roasted towards the end.

dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 28, 2016
This is a case of a beer, while good, not living up to the expectations at all. Sweet but not much molasses. Not my favorite by a bit.

Esters. Dates. Plums. Toffee. Pours a muddy murky dark tan with sediment floating in it and a light tan thin quickly fading head. Thick mouthfeel. Hard candy. Toffee. Fruit. Raisins. Dates. Very sweet with just a bit of bitterness on the finish. A little spice. A little booze.

3.9
Dahlstrom (393) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2016
750 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy amber with a medium white head. Strong malty aroma of caramel, resin, bread, rasins, milk chocolate; moderate hoppy with notes of grass and pine. Taste reflects the aroma. Medium body, with a creamy texture. Low carbonation. Medium bitterness.

3.9
smroush (281) - Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Aromas are heavily malt dominated - caramel and to feeling. Color is a dark copper with a small off-white head. Taste us quite sweet with a fairly pronounced but generalized bitterness. Alcohol is pronounced; carbonation is a bit lively; finish is long, with lots of malt. Overall a good solid barleywine.

4.6
emartell (352) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - AUG 6, 2016
Una exquisita cerveza. Compleja tanto en sabor como en aroma. Destacan las notas a frutos secos. Higo y pasas principalmente. Las notas a grano están muy presentes. De color cobrizo, carbonatacion baja, corona de espuma ligera. Un sabor complejo y bien integrado.
