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.

Best before 10-09-06 Bottle poured a cloudy copper with a small, quickly dissapating amber head. Aromas of carmel, a bit of dark fruit, toffee, and a hint of cocoa. Palate was medium bodied. Flavors of dark fruit, toffee, and a hint of honey with a clean, sweet finish.

BeerandBlues2 (10073) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2005
Botlle 4-Oct/2002. Pours hazy and muddy copper, straw and orange with a small frothy off-white head that qucikly becomes an edgy and rocky film. Caramel malt (straw, hay) toffee and grape, plum hop with cellared oak notes and yeast (dough). Flavor is warm caramel malt buttery and fizzy with a lightly hopped finish and oak notes. Medium bodied fizzy and warming palate.

hopscotch (9549) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Bottle (can’t read the date)... Murky caramel-colored ale with a small, wispy, white head. Sweet caramel aroma and flavor. Basically, it’s liquid caramel with some subtle apple and pear esters. Although it’s sweet, it’s not too sweet! Medium-bodied and milky with medium carbonation. Rich, caramelly finish with a small hop tingle. Thanks to vyvvy for shipping the bottle to me!

daknole (9443) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Brown pour with a nice creamy beige head. Maple syrup, dates, rum soaked raisins and caramel aroma. Flavor has dried figs, dates, raisins and some nice rich yeast. Hops add a slight tingle, but this beer is about the malt and fruit flavors. Nice beer. Best ive had from this brewery by far.

pivnizub (9012) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2009
Bottle (vintage 2008):Amber, hazy, lots of floaties visible, small and persistent lacy off-white head; fruity-vinous aromas detectable, molasses and a tinge of turpentine, too; stronger sweet-bitter flavour, nearly full bodied; moderate - slightly alcoholic and tart - sweet fruity and vinous finish, some hops detectable in the aftertaste. Quite O.K., but all in all also disappointing........

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2008
12.7 ounce bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Downtown Charlottesville, VA. Pours a muddled brown color with very large unappealing floaties. Medium head, poor head retention and poor lacing. Aroma of banana, toffee and grain. Taste is very grainy, with some fruit and toffee notes. Medium bodied.
