Founders Curmudgeon (Old Ale)

12 oz single in the typical Founders stubbie bottle. 2008 vintage.
A bit of a disappointing pour. I say that for a couple of reasons. Firstly the color is a wee bit dull. Opaque orange amber body and very little head and lace. Secondly although the head is in line with the ABV, the whole thing thing seems to lack much life or edge. A little dull.
Nose and tastes are VERY vanilla based to me. Light bourbon and sweetness finish it.
Strange brew for me. Too much bourbon/hard liquor influence for me when I was looking for a lighter, fortified sherry feel. That’s where I like (and expect) my Old Ales to come from.
All in all, a touch disappointing for me.
