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.

kermis (6077) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle shared with Deanso. Amber brown pour, small white head with no retention. Aroma is floral with slight malt. Flavor has same aspects with some caramel and a bitter sweet aftertaste.

fiulijn (15780) - 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.

Right on the borderline of being too hoppy, but otherwise a nice beer. It says it’s an English Strong ale, but I thought it was more like an ESB.

Ernest (6517) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2003
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.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2003
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.

8 May 2004 - Sweet spicy hop malt aroma. Nice light brown colour, no lacing or head. Short taste, light malt, sweet spirious and spicy hop flavours. Thinish fizzy palate.

sloth (2582) - 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 (2450) - 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.
