This is an old ale, (which I guess means I should spell it “ye olde ale”) and it is an extremely full-bodied and flavorful beer. Bought it on recommendation from Dan at work, and he was totally right on. It’s 9.8% and I didn’t realize it until after I finished it. I drank it while playing Portal 2 with George last night, and I’m surprised it didn’t impact my gaming abilities considering I was already two beers deep. If you’re a fan of English Ales, this is definitely a great pick.
