BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Founders Brewing Company
Michigan, United States
foundersbrewing.com

Style: English Old Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Think classic seafaring ports, local pubs and weathered old fishermen. This old ale is brewed with molasses and an insane focus on the malt bill. Then Oak-Aged. The result is a rich, malty delight that's deceptively smooth and drinkable.

Cellared for 13 months beyond the date of bottling.

Poured into a tulip glass. No head. Beautiful dark amber color with abundant sediment suspended throughout.

Figs, molasses, Kentucky bourbon, young Duoro wine, Christmas fruitcake. Sturdy malt on the back-end. A very special ensemble of flavors. Rich. Slow sipping required.
