2008 Vintage @ home
Pours a thick, foggy amber colour with a thick, creamy white head; which lasts for a while. Has a very mild aroma, hints of caramel. The flavour doesn’t, surprising given the relatively high alcohol content, have a strongly alcoholic taste, is quite smooth, mildly bitter and the aftertaste is pleasant, but not very long lasting. All in all it is a wonderful brew!

2002 Batch. Dark Amber colouring with an off-white head. Strong sweet fruity, sugar aroma. Aroma is alot stronger than the sweet, fruity, tangy, nutty flavour. Waiting in anticipation for what the 2003 batch will be like.

Murky brown/red color with a light tan head. Nose of plum &/or apricots. Nice malty palate with a delicate alcohol intensaity and a smooth bitter finish at the back end. Better winter ale then in the middle of June. Nonetheless a very nice ale.

Bottle(2013 vintage) pours a very Deep Earthy red colour.
Aroma is of fruits and a slight ethanol aroma.
Taste.Has a nice fruity character and a slight alcohol taste, and a flavour i can best describe as somewhat of a combination between a burnt, bitter and espresso flavour also some general fruit flavours.
Overall. good solid beer.

As cervejas da Coopers possem uma bela aparência. Essa em especial demonstra uma coloração laranja enferrujada, com visíveis fragmentos de lúpulo no copo.
Cerveja bem forte, mas ao mesmo tempo bem maltado, dando uma sensação notavelmente encorpada. Safra 2009. Uma cerveja de respeito! Muito boa.

Pours a beautiful hazy hazelnut color with an off-white head. Nose full of succulent malts, caramel, and mouthwatering hops on the tip. Hoppy but malty on the tongue with notes of oak, caramel, and licorice. Delicious! But missing something...

Bottled. Wow, yeah! Great, complex flavours and aromas: orange, malt, prunes, hops, flowers, wood, alcohol, yeast, caramel... it’s all there. Good mouthfeel and a nice aged aftertaste, makes you think of oak barrels or something like that. Very highly reccomended.
