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.

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.

langeveld12 (216) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
Head is frothy, off-white and mostly diminishing. Body is hazy amber with sparkles. Aroma contains cookie, molasses, herbs, citrus fruits, grape, raisin, apple, licorice, cola and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light acidic, light sweet and bitter and finishing in bitter. Body is medium to full with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Enjoyable, not spectacular.

From a bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with a lasting thin head, mild aroma, crisp finish with a lingering bitterness. Pretty good.

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 (3175) - 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.
