BEER INFO

The Olde Stone Brewing Company
Ontario, Canada | website

Style: Old Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The inhabitants of the rugged hills and dales of northern England and Scotland like their beer strong, dark and sustaining, with the mellowness of age. So it is with our Olde Ale, a hearty, malt-accented brew which lives up to the promise of its dark brown colour. This is not just any old ale, mind you, but Wilde Olde Ale, to honour the somewhat peculiar playwright.

Served at Hot Belly Mama's, which is right beside the brewhouse. What impressed me is the beer was served at slightly below room temperature, not ice cold. The waitress when I remarked on that positively. Very dark auburn colour, with a decent, one finger head that was thick. Smells of barley coffee, figs, plums and raisins. Tasted very nice. Sweet, but a good sweet. Not cloying or artificial. Lots of dark fruits, some bready malts up front with a bitter espresso aftertaste. Mouthfeel was a bit thick and syrupy. I think it's the best old ale I've had to date.

A darker colour like a good UK old ale, with some roast. Medium mouthfeel. Best of show in their lineup in terms of drinkability. Taste of roast and a mid-sip chocolate maltiness, drop of coffee na dbarley. Some sourness that didn't quite work, but I could have a pint.
