Old Black 2015

Black. Thick. Rich. Complex.

This beer defies classification. Call it a black barleywine, call it a Belgian dark strong, call it an imperial stout, call it a majority ale, but it’s a bit of them all. Brewed with dark malts, this high gravity ale is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain and aged on oak for a complex, sweet, dessert beer that will surely please the palate.

We call it a majority ale because it’s designed to age for up to 21 years, the age of majority. First brewed to celebrate the birth of Ben’s daughter, this limited release beer is brewed once a year in the fall and only gets better with age.
