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.

Nose is estery and spicy, some hints of earthy hops, and a dash of caramel underneath. Lots of CO2 wafting up as well. Medium-bodied beer, with a fair amount of carbonation, leaving the odd feeling of creaminess and prickliness at the same time. Main flavors are a maltiness accented by caramel and chocolate hints, along with some earthy hops in the mix. Finishes very, very balanced, with a firm bitterness taking over at the end. Alcohol is reasonably well-hidden. A pretty good beer, if a bit unexciting.

Nothing, I mean Nada special about this. At three dollars a bottle I would expect more. Nice rocky head with a very light amber hue. The texture is light as well. Lightly malted and very little hop prescence as in none at all. 7.1% is well hidden but doesn’t need to be. All in all very dissapointing.

Flat tea brown with large soapy head and a good dose of chunky crap floating around in it. Smell is very esterrific, with tea leaves and a hint of shortbread, and a dash of worchester sauce for good measure. The flavor is very sweet with only minimal hopping, but a luxurious, sappy maltiness. Overall it's a bit doughy for my tastes, and this stuff reeks of alcohol.

RB 2003. Aroma was malty, alcoholic and vanilla. Slightly cloudy, some rye bread, malt. Dry finish. Not impressed with this one.

2000 Vintage from Whaleman 2004: Poured with a big fluffy white head. Amber colored. Caramel apple aroma. Malty flavor with more apple. Big carbonation. Okay.

Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. 2004 vintage. Languid reddish-amber with no head. Nose is sweet and yeasty, with some faint staleness. Body is soft and lightly carbonated. Flavour is OK, but there’s not a lot going on, it’s just a pleasant sweetish ale. Hides the booze well, though.

The only time I’ve been disappointed in the Cooper family.
