Founders Old Curmudgeon Ale

Beer score: 7.4
Web site: Founders Brewing Company
This is definitely something different after I've been tasting pale ales and amber ales the last couple of days. The bitterness hits you right at the start, but it's not too much to handle. The strong, burnt molasses smell quickly translates into a strong, burnt molasses flavor that takes a sip or two to become familiar with, but is quite enjoyable once you know what to expect. A touch of caramel in the flavoring, also. Lots of malty sweetness. I can recommend this beer, but it's not for novices, and I'm not sure it's something I'd want to drink regularly, though for special occasions it could be quite the treat.
