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.

Unclear medium orange amber color with a small, virtually none head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, vintage notes. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (070808)

yespr (32113) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2008
37.5 cL bottle, 2007. Pours cloudy deep orange with a creamy off-white head. Dense malt aroma with a note of overripe citrus fruit. Flavour starts sweet malty but soon turns into a more alcohol dense, warming and solid overripe fruit flavour. Ends with a light alcohol bite and quite warming too.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2005
A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy combined with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet yeasty with notes of caramel and a dry end, but surprisingly I find the mouthfeel somewhat watery.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2005
(BOttle 37,5 cl) Unclear, greyish amber and a small off-white head. Weird, indefinable smell - not very pleasant. Some caramel in the flavour and then really nothing much. Quite a disappointment. 160805

2000 vintage: Dark amber with big, airy head. Fruity, malty and full bodied. Sweet and buttery. Rather low bitterness. A complex, subtle, rich ale.

2007 Vintage! Clear deep amber beer. Short lived bubbly white head. Light palate, crispy and semi dry. Caramel malt, light oxidisation I think. Creamy and dry. Faint orange hops. Dry finish. A bit tired possibly. A 2009 bottle provided a bi more zing and less oxidisation.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2011
Cloudy amber color; generous head, compact. Aroma of caramel and sugar, lightly soapy. Ordinary body strength; it has caramel flavor, and unfortunately also a metallic touch, that makes the final a bit harsh; a high yeast presence also makes it a bit astringent; there are also traces of sweet liquorice and vegetables. Nothing spectacular here.
