COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “Old Time” series is a collaboration with The Charleston Beer Exchange. The base beer (a Belgian-style strong dark ale) for all four Old Times was originally brewed in July 2011, then aged in a variety of oak barrels, some with and some without a blend of brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus.

Funky Old Time was aged for 18 months in two American oak red wine barrels with wild yeast/brewing bacteria.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle at Tony/Jim BA Birthday Extravaganza 2013 (Western Springs, IL). Pours a darker ruby brown hue, a darker murky well hazed hue settles in, showing some faded subtle glow in the body, red and brown with a touch more life to the edges. Small frothy tan head dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are sour cherries and firmer red wine tannins, gentle funk, oak, vanilla. The funkiness starts to come in a bit more, a bit vinous and balsamic. Develops well compared to the Brandy sour. Initial mirrors what it’s offering, a firmer lactic sourness meets tannic red wine, Sour cherries and tannic barrel, touches of mellow body show biscuit, but largely mellowed out. The wild yeast gives a firmer balsamic and sour cherry, lactic sourness as we press on. A touch acidic but in an enjoyable way. Backend is where the red wine element takes off a bit more. Dry, red wine, tannic feel starts to coat the palate, a synergy feel with the sourness, still firm but even keeled. Finish is touches of mellow sweetness, lingering lactic elements and a firmer barrel presence. Really nice step and a considerable step up from the Grumpy version.

Leighton (22305) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Manny G. Pours mostly clear amber with a slight, bubbly head. Lots of tangy fruits in the nose, acidic berries, leather. Medium sweet flavor with robust acidity, more tart and leathery berries, some alcohol, wet wood. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with lasting sour fruits, berries, wood, slight funk, a few leaves. Nice.

The taste is tart, tangy, decent acidity, dried berry, dark fruits, wood, peach and damp wood with a dry finish. Medium+ body and soft carbonation. A touch acidic,but decent enough.
