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.

Pours amber-brown with gigantic sediment (rice-grain sized and some smaller flakes) and a decent, lingering light-brown head. Nose is very weak and generic to brown ales. Flavor is decent, however, with brown sugar, slight roastiness, modest bitter hops, and some maple coming out on the front, fading to sticky pine and caramel. Finish continues to be sticky. Decent stuff, even if a bit pedestrian.

2016 and 2014 bottles. Highly carbonated, lasting head. Deep murky brown. Resiny, alcoholic smell. Faint. Medium sweet and strong bitter taste. Well balanced. Long and bitter finish. 2014 stronger overall, sweeter, more dank.

goleiro (225) - Lublin, POLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Pewnie sporo po terminie, ale bardzo ułożone, złożony i bogaty smak i aromat, bardzo dobre ale, bliskie do belgów.

Bottle at home. 2015 vintage enjoyed in july 2016. Aroma is strong malt, caramel, toffee, raisins, sweet dried fruits, figs. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Not bad at all, has an enjoyable malty caramel dried fruity richness.

varanid99 (1033) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2016
2015 edition - drinking one now and putting another one down with my 2013. Murky brown pour, a few floaters and a tight tan head that persists a while. Toffee, dried fruit, jammy aromas. Taste is sweet, toffee, a little bitter, a little boozy, then some dried fruit and leather. Not bad - will be interested to see how it ages.

hohops (821) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2016
2014 edition. Appearance- murky copper, with an amber hue. A really small light brown head which quickly fades. Aroma- bready malt, toffee and caramel, sweet raisin, caramel biscuit. Taste- sugary boozy dark fruit, raisin with hints of plum, Belgian dubbel, banana bread, lots of malt, caramel biscuity backbone, red wine hints, fluffy slightly sticky mouthfeel. Everything is in place, although it doesn’t quite all come together.
