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.

This reminded me of North Coast Old Stock, but, perhaps a tad hoppier and drier. Dried brown fruit skins, lemon and orange peel, ginger, vanilla, and bourbon, In a weird way, it sort puts me in mind of an Old Fashioned, which is my absolute favorite cocktail.
