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.

Draft pour at the Willard’s Tap House. Nice to run into this beer while down here. 2014 vintage. Oily copper pour with an active fizz head. Mild sweet malt aroma. Flavor is complex, bready malt, bold caramel, sweet cream. Caramel heavy finish. Fresh feel to an old beer. Excellent stuff.

Hoprider (683) - DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
Reddish brown pour with a beige head. Nose is english old ale with light raisins, nutty, slight caramel and bready aroma and maybe a slight soft vanilla spice to soften things up. The taste is fairly light with mostly caramel, light dark fruit and again a dry nutty pressence. Finishes malty, well rounded and with a sweet bready aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with fairly soft carbonation.

Pretty good ale. Medium body, good aroma, decent overall quality. The roasted malts are dominant, and pretty tasty.

AshtonMcCobb (6612) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2016
On keg at Ushers. Appearance - hazy amber with a decent head. Like dark honey. Nose - tonnes of honey and Jamaica cake. A bit Oloroso sherry too. Taste - honey, toffee, figs and brown bread. Nuts. Dried orange peel. Oh and then a layer of marzipan on the finish. Palate - medium to full bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry rich yet balanced finish. Overall - this is a bit special.

Rugamu (174) - SPAIN - JUN 5, 2016
Buena cerveza, con toques bastante dulces mezclado con toques maderosos que hace que te venga a la mente el sabor de las castañas. Entra muy bien y no se nota mucho la graduación alcoholica. Repetiria una vez más.

4.5
Buukwurm (42) - California, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Aroma of caramel and butter. Pours a reddish brown with a small, quickly dissipating head. Overall taste is sweet with pronounced molasses notes. A full-bodied ale with mild carbonation. The finish is bitter but not particularly long.
