Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

This is thin and cloudy with a hint of wood smell. BUT it drinks dangerously easily for 10% abv . Think Newcastle with a hint of sweetness and triple the malt flavor.

2014 Bottle (11.1%)

Aroma was good, but on the mild side. Tasting notes: Darks Fruits, Burnt Toffee, Oak, Faint Cinnamon with a medium body. Looking forward to aging my other bottles.
