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.

pours a nice ruby red with a substantial thick head. looks nice. hops dominate the nose - resiny, floral, and sweet overtones. really nice and smooth taste; Sweet up front balanced by the strong floral hops. Grassy after taste. Good stuff, would love to try some that has relaxed for a year or so.

Brewhemia (321) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Yummie barley wine just like I love them. Lots of caramel aroma as well as bread and even some nuttiness but balanced by a destinct grassy and citrussy hop aroma. The taste is high on sweetness and medium bitter with a quite bitter finish. Lots of flavor notes of dried fruits and grassy and tangerine hop flavor notes. Very nice deep amber color. A good example of why I love well brewn deep and complex strong ales.

Bottle enjoyed over Labor Day weekend. Dark toffee malts, wheat, coffee, figs and plums. Surprisingly light body and duration but alcohol is silky smooth and sweet. Burnt fruit finish with spice.

klu9 (832) - Kraków, POLAND - SEP 9, 2017
W smaku i zapachu rodzynki, karmel, amerykańskie chmiele. Piwo bez wad, poprawne, w stylu. Ale po nitach spodziewałem się czegoś co wyrwie mnie z butów. Tak się jednak nie stało.
