COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old Ale (also known as Stock Ale), is a full-bodied beer with high levels of dextrins. In times past, this beer was typically laid up to mature, hence the name. The color varies from rich, dark amber to a very dark brown. This style features fruity, vinuous & deep, malty flavors, giving it an almost port-like qualities. Sight acidity is not uncommon.
Olive, iconic mascot & spirit guide of our brewery, first appeared on our Old Brown Dog label in 1994 & returned, thirteen years later, to pose for our Really Old Brown Dog, a luscious, malt-rich, full bodied old ale featuring deep notes of complex fruit. Much like our beloved Olive, this beer will mellow & age gracefully.

Swaroga (2151) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 13, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear brown with small beige head. Beer has a deep aroma of alcohol, cookie, vanilla, more cake, cake bottom, candied fruits, sweet tea, sweet milk extract. Nice. Mouth feel is thick and oily. The beer is mostly sweet with spicy feeling from alcohol and ...ginger, cinamon and chilli in the finish. Taste is complex and evolves with next sips. It reminds me a lot spice bread, honey, tiramisu accompany with a nice glass of Cointreau. Enjoyable and satisfying.
