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.

Strong smells of honey, molasses, scotch, and whiskey. This is one smooth beer. A nice sipper and getting better with age. The ones I'm drinking now where bottled in the Spring of 2014.

Very little if any hop bitterness, these are going to be good on cold winter nights. refreshing finish and not too syrupy.
