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 12oz into my Revolution taster

A- Pours something darker than orange but lighter than brown. Khaki head leaves excellent lacing

S- Some malts and booze, not much coming through here

T- This is like malt juice, in the best way possible. You'll have to try it to understand. Booze is much more subdued in the taste

M- Silky smooth, dare I say perfect

O- Best old ale I've ever had. Period
