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.

mathieuc (1490) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2013
2010 vintage. Aroma of brown sugar and sucre d’orge. Thin head that receeds in nothingness. Flavors of brewing sugar and no hops. Small hint of oxidation but nothing distracting. Pretty tame for an ESA, it needs more oomph! I won’t seek this out again with some age but I might just give it another go if I ever find it fresh somewhere.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 11, 2013
2008 Vintage, so it’s been taking up space in my fridge for, like 4 years, at least. So here we go. Smells like molasses and brown sugar. Taste is leathery sweet and very heavy. I get some dark fruit, some molasses, lots of booze, especially in the finish.

Malty and hoppy but poor mouth feel. Pretty good for an Aussie beer. $5 from Re Store.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a decent off-white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and caramel. Taste is dark fruit, citrus, malt, caramel, and yeast. Just OK. Think I will age it next time.

patricks110 (1754) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
A raelly nice fruity and dry roasted malts ale. Not quite a barley wine, but this brew has a great fruity flavour and a robust hop flavour with a mild bitterness. The malts are rather sweet and toffeed. Overall, a nice well balanced strong beer.

Bif (1556) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle-2012 Vintage- Pours a cloudy dark copper color with a good tan head that fades slowly to nice lacing. Aroma of rich roasted malt, dark fruit and spice. Tatse of roasted malt, bit of caramel sweetness, some dark fruit and spice. Nice bitterness and a clean dry finish. A solid medium body, smooth and creamy, with a very nice balance. No hint of the 7.5% ABV. Nice easy drinker, good beer the end the day with. Worth a try.
