COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Batch 4 Oct/2002 – There’s big chunks floating in this! Orange dominates the taste. Also, bready (like a barleywine) but very mellow. Very little alcohol presence. This is like a half and half using a mellow barleywine and an English Ale. This is awesome.

jimhilt (2414) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 23, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Pours with a off-white two-fingered head that stays and leaves a good lace. Cloudy amber color and loaded with chunky bits. Pour this slowly. Batch No. 4-Oct/2002. It has aged well. Starts sweet and finishes sweet with just a hint of hops. $16.99 for a 6-pack of 375ml bottles. Also available at Liquorama Upland, Ca. $2.99 for a 375ml bottle does not say Extra Strong on label.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 15, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2004 Rerate 15 minutes later: Much better with all the yeast in the glass. A fruity taste develops and some bready notes are present. Batch number 4-OCT/2002 drank 15-FEB/2004: Hazy orange with a good sized white head. The bottle has a bunch of chunks left in it, so the next pour will turn this at least to 'cloudy'. Slight fruity aroma, boring taste and not much of an ending. While there isn't anything wrong with this beer, there certainly isn't anything right about it either.

The Cooper's lads are fucking geniuses. A mule0kicker that almost drinks itself. Spanner.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - FEB 10, 2004
Pours a cloudy peach color with a small off white head and chunks of floaties. Nose is light and fruity. Flavor starts lightly buttery and sweet then a light dry bitterness that finishes with a hint of bubble gum. Alcohol fairly well hidden, but there is a light burn in the throat.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2004 Extra Strong Oct 4, 2002. A lot going on here. Nice cloudy copper color with big chunks of yeast. Poured nice with a decent head. Very mellow orange flavor and roasted malty tones. Bubble gum and caramel are right behind the mostly mild citrus taste. A very nice English Strong Ale.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Fruity aroma. Very little head. Orangey amber in color with a million floaties, some very large. Fruity flavor with a nice malt backbone and citric presence. Well balanced and very enjoyable. Bottled in 02.

Choos (618) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Aroma malty, toasty orangy and a hint of alcohol. Tea coloured with a quickly diminishing head. Flavour is roasty malt, brown sugar with hints of citrus and a noticeable amount of alcohol. Thinner than I would have thought with a reasonable amount of carbonation. On tap at Coopers Ale House. Nicer with less toasty notes and more passion fruit

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Orangy amber color with chunks of yeast floating about. Malty nose with hints of banana. Mildly malted with some spicyness.
