Founders Curmudgeon Old Ale

founders_curmudgeon

Curmudgeon, by Founders Brewing, is a big, rich (award winning!) beer.   It reminds me of a Belgian Strong Dark Ale like Brother Thelonious or Chimay Grande Reserve.  It’s got a heavy body, and you can taste the alcohol in this 9.8% ABV beer.   The heat is offset by syrupy sweet malts and the molasses that it’s brewed with.  This is a big huge beer, and a good one if you like the style.

I give it a 4 out of 5.
