BEER INFO

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

Style: 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.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into snifter glass.

A: Beautiful honey brown with a nice red tone. Scant one finger tan head that dissipated almost immediately. Some very minimal lacing.

S: Sweet malts mixed with toffe and caramel. Some faint oak.

T: Much bigger than the nose. Nice sweetness with malt, caramel, toffee. Some wood coming through and a bit of spiciness. Alcohol is very well hidden.

M: Nice medium body with about the right level of carbonation.

O: Really nice brew. Not overly sweet or assertive, but very enjoyable to drink. I find myself enjoying all of the Founder's offerings, and this one is no exception.
