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.

Mycket sötma här. Både i aroman och smaken. Man skulle nästan gissa på att det legat i ett whisky fat ett tag.

Bottle from Barleywine, Copenhagen, enjoyed at home
Deep copper red, tanned head. Smells of malts, dark fruits, fruit peel, vinous tones, almost a hint of sherry. Moderate sweet, quite dry, some dark fruits, oak and sherry. Very nice old ale

Ktwse (5457) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Pours a nice hazy copper red amber with low light tan head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, light butterscotch, overripe tropical fruit, sugar and light soy. Taste is sweet, boozy and caramelly, with just hints of bitterness in the finish. Very alcohol warming. Body is rich and very, very creamy with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Creamy dark amber, almost red liquid. Virtually no head. High sediment present. Aroma is caramel, alcoholic, corn, sugar; rich, complex and powerful. Palate is full, creamy. Low carbonated. Finish is very warm, nively bitter, long and powerful. Taste is sugar, alcohol, caramel; leaves a lovely warming sensation.

tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 29, 2013
on draft. poured a dark ruby red color with a bubbly white head that quickly dissipated. the aroma of lots of sweet deep malts was forefront on the nose. maybe some dark fruit adjuncts in there are well. the flavor with the alcohol well hidden was sweet malts and fruits and very smooth.. no bitterness bite at all. deceptively good.

Copper/amber pour with a white head. Lots of sediment with this one. Aromas of dark fruit and brown sugar. Flavor has a big sweet malt presence with notes of fig and plum. Slight warming from the abv but for the most part it’s well-hidden. Solid brew.
