Are there any great, authentic malt shops (that actually serve -malts- not just shakes) in Park Slope?

I'm going to be there tonight with a few friends visiting the States for the first time and I'd love to show them what a real malt tastes like as they don't get them in their home country. Extra bonus points if it "feels" like an old school shop. We're going to be at the Bell House beforehand and would prefer something in walking distance but we can train or take a car if need be.

    Brooklyn Farmacy is your place. I haven't had the malts, but I've seen them on the menu.

      It's hard to get more authentic-feeling that Brooklyn Farmacy! As long as you think of early 20th century authenticity and not 50's malt-ship with formica countertops etc. Also haven't had their malts, but enjoyed the shake and egg cream and overall feel immensely.
