Bottle conditioned.
Brewed with choice malts and an extended top fermentation. This naturally conditioned ale experiences interactions between the robust malt, hop and yeast characteristics, to exhibit an intriguing journey of flavour development over a period of five years when stored under cellar conditions.

Sensational ale. Hoppy, fresh, balance and extremely satisfying. This is difficult to find as it sells out fast wherever it’s stocked, but if you can get a hold of some I can’t recommend it enough. Buy two cases - one to drink and one to keep for at least twelve months.

Grzesiek79 (3518) - Radom, POLAND - APR 12, 2014
Vintage 2007. A wiec po ponad 5 latach zalecen do starzenia. Moje mialo az 7, planowalem jeszcze z rok czy dwa potrzymac, ale nadarzyla sie swietna mila okazje by je skosztowac. Dobre, nawet bardzo dobre piwo ze sporym plusem. W zapachu i smaku daktyle, ryba smarzona oraz sliwki w likierze. Aromat intensywny, ale piana nie za mocna i nie za wielka, ale ladnego koloru taka maslano bezowa. Kolor ciemno bursztynowy z rubinowymi refleksami. Czarny osad na dnie i nie do konca dal sie wymieszac, ale za to jak zmetnil i przyciemnil piwo. Super smaczne tresciwe, a alkoholu sie prawie nie wyczuwa. Polecam starzenie tego piwa bo warto.

WheatKing (1319) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle. Hazy deep amber/light brown, small off-white head. Nose is berry, caramel, metallic hops. Flavour gives some licorice flavour along with light toffee. Thin. Alright, but pretty nondescript for a "vintage".

g_georgiou (389) - CYPRUS - FEB 20, 2014
Murky orange brown body with a thin creamy beige head. There’s some visible sediment in the liquid. Aroma is roasty, caramel malt. Some liquorice. Taste is sweet with a light bitterness. Soft to average carbonation. A bit of a tannic mouth-feel in the finish.

ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle. Malty and fruity beer. Red apples, redcurrant, apricot jelly, dried fruit, some anisee and spicy hops. Very nice though the good overall impression fails being upheld in the taste. It is dry, less fruity than expected and rather alcoholic, especially in the somewhat astringent finish. As it warms it makes the shift from alcoholic and rough to more mellow and anisee driven but also boring. Which isn’t exactly good either.

Vanz (189) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2014
2013 vintage, overall a good beer. ABV is pretty well hidden, not too many boozey flavours. Overcarbonated though, nice floral hop aroma, sweet raisiny malt. Tastes awfully like a strong coopers green to be honest (pale ale).

chinchill (3116) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2013
2013 355ml bottle purchased in Dunedin NZ and comsumed the same day. Pours dark reddish amber with poor clarity and a fizzy, short-lived head. No lacing is left on the wine glass. Aroma: sweet and pleasant with a suggestion of cordial. Higher ABV evident here as well as in the taste and feel. Fruity flavor with a battle between sweet and bitter. Feel: light body; mildly astringent with some alcohol heat; low carbonation leaves this ale rather lifeless. O: cannot recommend this old style ale despite its fine aroma.
