Old Strong Ale


Not my finest creation, but had a nice alcohol warmth and a decent flavor. I didn't keep good logs of this one, but it was completed sometime in the fall of 2007. I've heard that some people forgot about them for more than a year in the back of a refrigerator and they were much more tasty, so perhaps I just wasn't patient enough with it.
EDIT: As noted in a separate brewer's log post, this beer was quite delicious after bottle aging 2 years in a refrigerator.
