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.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Head is initially small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, cookie), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with light notes of apple, sherry and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pretty dull and bland.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2003 Batch #4: I didn't care for this one. Sweet, amber colored and cloudy. Not too strong for a storng ale. Very little hops character, only malts sweetness. Somewhat sticky finish. Mama told me not to come.

sloth (2532) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 23, 2004
10/02 vintage : Thanks to kawa for a shot at this one : Small tan head, short lived with little lace to speak of. Murky amber color. Very faint malt, fruty nose. Medium/thin body. Lightly malty, bready. Faint hoppiness with some yeasty notes. Fairly dry finish. Not alot going on here, fairly dissappointing. Extra Strong tilte needs to be removed from this label. I,m surprised this has held up this long. A surprisingly very over rated brew.

radiomgb (2391) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2005
Bottle from 2002. Light amber in colour. The aroma was lightly hopped along with some toasted caramel malt. The flavour was of caramel malt, some brandyish alcohol heat, slightly sweet. Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation. Finishes with lots of alcohol heat. Poor storage and time are against this beer.

reggiedunlop (3219) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2009
2002 bottle...poured a honey-amber color with a nice white head on it and thick lacing. aroma is sweet with vanilla, caramel, honey, and some bread. flavor is slightly grainy with vanilla notes and a well balnced hoppiness but is clearly a bit past its prime as the mouthfeel is a bit watery. the finish is dry and oaky.
