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.

This is a fantastic old ale. Lots of malts, Carmel, a touch of toasty flavors. Great beer.

Pours a clear and dark amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, bread and sweet spices. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with alcoholwarmth. Overall an average beer.

This one has a wonderful nutty and caramel aroma. There was no head to speak of. The brew is similar in color to a strong tea. There’s quite a lot to the taste. It is brutally high in the alcohol taste, though it is well offset with caramel. There is also a high element of bitterness, but it did not take away from my enjoyment. Bitterness and carbonation fight hard for supremacy over the palate with no clear winner. This one is a monster and you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to try it.

Bottle @ home shared with DutchDrebus. Ruby red color, almost no head. Smells a little like barleywine to me. Little sweet, little sour, little wort, malts and grains in the taste. Oily texture. Decent.
