Originally brewed in 2005 as the first in our annual decadence series, Alesmith Olde ale follows the tradition of classic British-style old ales. This rich, malt-forward ale showcases soft notes of currants and dried fruit along with complex dark sugars, all of which are balanced by a subtle bitterness derived from the addition of traditional English hops. Alesmith Olde ale is ready to be enjoyed now or it can be aged for upwards of twenty years to further enhance its amazing depth of flavor. A hearty ale designed to please Bacchus himself!

    Pours opaque mahogany with a thin buff head. Aroma delivers caramel, toasted malt and woody hops tones. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side and offers caramel, toasted malt and woody hops notes. Mouthfeel features firm body and OK fizz. Get decadent!

    Alesmith Olde Ale British-Style Ale MMXIV 750 ml bottle, bottled on 2/26/14. Pours dark ruby amber with a medium creamy off-white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

    The aroma is caramel malts, molasses, dark fruits and some spicy alcohol and a little cardboard.

    The flavor is lots of hot alcohol with some sweet sugary dark fruits and molasses and a touch of green apple. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

    Overall, sweet sugary fruits and tons of alcohol doesn't do it for me.
