APPEARANCE: Deep copper color - like a shiny new penny.
AROMA: Fruity aroma with hints of raisins, dates, figs, and caramel.
TASTE: Complex fruitiness (notably brown fruits) enhanced with a malty sweetness. Subtle spicy, earthy hop notes balance the malt character.
MOUTHFEEL/DRINKABILITY: Medium to heavy body that provides instant warmth and a sweet, clean finish.
GOES WELL WITH: While it can be a warming, stand-alone nightcap, Old Ale compliments cinnamon desserts, bread pudding, brown fruits (raisins, figs, and the like), carrot cake, and coffee cake.
NOTABLE: Living up to it’s name, beer can be cellared and aged for years.
Hops: German Perle, Northern Brewer, Cascade
Specialty Malts: 120 L Crystal, Munich, 40L Carastan
