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.

From a bottle - 2008 year. Good, but not great. Reminded me of my trip to Australia, which was a bonus!

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2003 Batch No 4-Oct/2002 - A small slightly frothy head, lovely deep orange colour - well presented. Smells malty and rich - an enticing ale. Starts slightly sweet, a dollop of malt not much bitterness/alcohol fairly well hidden but still clearly present, quite dry. Just a bit too strong for me. cheers

blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2006
Batch: Oct. 4, 2002. This reddish-orange beer poured with a small fizzy light brown head which didn’t stay too long and left little lacing. The beer is cloudy and heavily particulate. Malt aromas include nuts, toffee, caramel, and bourbon, with little hop aromas due to the age. Definitely a bit of that doughy yeast presence along with suggestions of butterscotch. Lots of sediment. The beer is creamy and thick on the palate and strongly alcoholic, though not unpleasantly so.

When in Adelaide drink Coopers... because thats all there is! I'm just kidding but it was definately nice to see some quaility beer on tap in this part of Oz. The bartender suggested I give it a try and I was very pleased. It is slight sweet with a nice creamy texture.

dubs (117) - St Peters, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 7, 2003
Hold the phone Reg, Im gonna start ranting. Fresh for 2002, this shit is well good, and I expect you to go and buy a sixy right now. It makes one remember why one likes (and bothers to spend time rating) beer in the first place. There is for sure some woodiness in the flavour esp. aftertaste with an overripe citris-y thing goin on. For real. From my shitty experience, it sort of has a belgian strong ale character mixed with the unique Coopers fruityness they get from their warm-temperature-friendly yeast. The head disappeared in the first minute though, which is a tad disappointing, because it seemed quite creamy when I poured it into dubs famous beer goblet. Holy shit, Im coming back for more on this one... cant wait til next September Dr Tim!

CapnCascade (116) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2008
Pours deep orange, almost brown, and cloudy. Minimal beige head with light retention around the edges. Aroma of sweet apple cider, Demerara sugar, Concord grapes, and spices. Flavour is less impressive, quite sweet with noticeable apple cider and grapes and a light hop back but not much else. Mouthfeel is a little too light for the style in my estimation. Overall not a bad effort though, I may try aging some.

Kurtos (113) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2013
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.

blackbock (112) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2009
(bottle -2008 vintage) Low carbonation, hazy copper-brown colour with some typical coopers ’floaties’. Warm alcohol with some syrupy toffee flavours. Almost no hops up front, but a bitter finish. If this is Coopers’ idea of a keeper, they should go back to the drawing board, mine was already past its best and had no outstanding characteristics.
