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.

Vintage 2007

Burnt golden, thin border of a head. Sweet, surprisingly cinnamon vibrant malt chuck. Suprising carbonation for the age, keeps a sticky sweetness at bay a wee bit and a brassy tinny bitterness. Warming sweetness throughout, a real good kick for the ABV and bonus points it was on a Tesco shelf too regularly. Held up purdy well. Sits nice and sweetly on the finish.

Best After 24/05/14. (2014 Vintage). Poured a murky brown colour with a few white bubbles for a head plus a few yeast particles as expected. Lacing nil. Carbonation moderate and fine. Aroma very subtle, virtually nothing. Taste slightly sweet followed by slight bitterness; alcohol well hidden. Light body. Average.

langeveld12 (225) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
Head is frothy, off-white and mostly diminishing. Body is hazy amber with sparkles. Aroma contains cookie, molasses, herbs, citrus fruits, grape, raisin, apple, licorice, cola and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light acidic, light sweet and bitter and finishing in bitter. Body is medium to full with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Enjoyable, not spectacular.

Flasa. Vintage 2012. Tmavsia jantarova farba, husta a kremova pena drzala pocas celeho pitia. Vona susenych sliviek, kandizovane ovocie, jemne pikantnost. Chut horkej cokolady, susenych sloviek, figy. V pozadi jemne bylinky, susene slivky, lieskove oriesky. Telo stredne, stredna nasytenost. Uzasny pocit v ustach, velmi pitelne pivo.
