Brewed for my 30th birthday, Dirty Man Old Ale is my first attempt at a higher alcohol content style. Old ales have always been a favorite, so I thought I would give it a shot. My wife preferred the name Dirty Old Man Ale, but since it’s an Old Ale, I thought I would give the saying a twist.
Sweet and balanced. Rich, strong, and complex earthy tones of both hops and malts. Long finish, leaving the tongue tingly warm from the high alcohol content.
