COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Old Ale conjures up thoughts of classic sea fairing ports, there local pubs and the weathered fisherman that frequent them. In traditional style Curmudgeon is brewed with an intense focus on the malt bill creating a very strong, rich, malty characteristic and a sweetness indicative of its cousin the barleywine. We are especially proud of the balance in this beer making it deceptively smooth and drinkable at 9.8% alcohol by volume.
Editor’s Note - The 2006 bottled version has been aged in bourbon barrels.

Blastomorpha (210) - - MAR 18, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2018 Pours deep amber red with a one finger thick white head. Very weak sweet malts aroma. Better in mouth, taste is quite sweet, a malty bomb plus some toffee. Light bitter finish. Underwhelming.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2018 Flaske, tappet 12/30/16. Mørk brun, uklar/partikkelfyldt. Aroma burbon fad, eg, malt, sødlig tung. Meget tyk/viskøs, tung burbon eg malt smag, sødlig, med en smule bitterhed i eftersmagen. God men lidt for domineret af fadsmagen.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2018 Une bière faite à l’ancienne avec un goût bien prononcé qui laisse une saveur assez longue en bouche. Bière assez forte, à déguster....

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2018 Nez : raisin sec, fruits confits. Bouche : l’amertume d’abord, puis le nez se confirme. Côté sucré contenu. Final : raisin sec, pruneau, mais assez court.

Pours a clear deep red, with a whitish tan head. Aroma is malt and wood. Tastes a rich maltiness, quite drinkable, with notes of oak. This one gets a 'thumbs up'.
