Ah, Dirty Old Man. Often consumed, never reviewed. Just had the Extra Dirty Old Man this weekend at the Tyranena tasting room & it rocked!

Pours jet black with bare minimum of head. Smells faintly of whiskey.

Love the Dirty Old Man, one of the best from one my favorite breweries. Malty, with just a touch of coffee & that suble whiskey kick in the back of the throat that leaves a nice warm inside.

Feels like there's little carbonation, smooth, dark, rich, yummy. Call me a Dirty Old Man devotee.

Tyranena. Consistently excellent beer. Can't wait to see what they have coming next.

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter.
THe beer pours a clear mahogany with thin beige head going to an edge layer almost immediately.
Aroma is some coffee bean and hints of whisky and oak, with just a dab of smoke in the background.
First sip reveals a fine tingly carbonationwith a thick hearty body and chewy texture.
Flavor is similar to nose advertisement with a little dark chocolate sprinkled in and some brown sugar with the whisky notes. No smoke on the nose and the flavor is not as robust as the aroma. Not a bad thing just a little more mild than the big nose.
I dont get any hops as this is a big malty brew. A bit of a sipper, but one that I enjoy thoroughly, go find a bottle of this and you wont be let down.
