Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
The “Old Time” series is a collaboration with The Charleston Beer Exchange. The base beer (a Belgian-style strong dark ale) for all four Old Times was originally brewed in July 2011, then aged in a variety of oak barrels, some with and some without a blend of brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and pediococcus.

Rummy Old Time was aged for 18 months in four 15-gallon Pritchard’s rum barrels without any wild yeast/brewing bacteria. It is the rarest of the series with only 18 cases produced!

Pours brown color with nice carbonation and one inch head. Smells of Belgian yeast and figs and raisins. Nice old ale taste of vanilla, raisins, and figs and caramel and not a lot of the sour taste from the bacteria. Overall a really good beer.

Butterscotch, vanilla, toffee pudding, brown sugar and caramel. Bit of oak in the taste, dark fruits. the booze cuts through the sweetness to balance it out. Like a very decadent barleywine. Good carb level. This is delightful.
