Darwin Saints Sinner
Our classic and flavoursome old ale. Brewed with rich, roasted malts, Saint's Sinner is no evil drink but a smooth and contemplative pint. Old ales are selective beers with a rich history of character. Traditional brands were a complex blend of crystal, brown, black and chocolate malts, often matured for years before serving. Our version is fresher but still full of the mature taste of classic malts and traditional hops.
Old Ale is a simple enough style to figure out. At least, once you understand that there are three or four beer styles called Old Ale. The first is the best known - the strong dark Old Peculier style. The second type of Old Ale is a blended dark ale. At least one of the beers comprising the blend will be aged for a couple of years in wood casks. The third version of Old Ale is a form of mild – a low-gravity dark ale. Another version of Old Ale is closely related to the first. For me, these are robustly malty beers, akin to a top-fermented version of a doppelbock.
