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.

Pours a cloudy copper with a soft white head. Aromas of fruit cake: bready, sweet, fruity, spices. Flavours are of sweetened dried fruits, honey, orange, and herbal (spearmint). Very high carbonation makes for a short, dry finish.

ANZUShophunter (314) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2015
Bottle from 2015 (cellaring another for comparison). Pours cloudy amber with ale yeast and sweet malt on the nose. Rich malt profile for the tastebuds that help hide the ethanol. This is the best beer in the Coopers range in my opinion.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Malty aroma with a light head. Body seemed a bit thin and the malt flavor seemed to weaken. Touch of oxidation detected.

Bottle. Dark cooper colour, malty, chocolaty. Good carbonation. Thin head. A bit bitter at the end and short finish

georgekappus (296) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy murky brown with very little head. Aroma was very sweet like flavored sugar. Taste was both sweet and sour. It was too thin for the appearance.

AmazonMatt (285) - PANAMA - DEC 27, 2007
Pretty darn good. Aroma is complex and inviting. The esters are a welcome addition. Not too alchoholic but with good mouthfeel. A copper color, with a decent head that disappears quite quickly. There isnt a date of the batch on the bottle. No hops and carmel, alcohol and esters dominate the flavor profile. Another winner from the beers of the world pack.

tcruicks (282) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Smells like apples, raspberries, caramel and corn. Tastes similar, but sweeter, maybe less apples and more of other fruits and caramel. Brownish orange color, small white head.

holdan (260) - USA - SEP 8, 2010
Amber with small head. fruity, plum jam aroma, malt. First comes a taste of sweet fruit and malt. Secondly comes the bitterness of hops and strength of alcohol. Body medium, text slight oily, carb average, finish lasting bitter.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - JUN 23, 2005
2004 bottle. Poured a brownish copper colour. Sweetish caramel nose and flavour of toffee mixed with some dark fruitiness. Could have used some bitterness in the finish but still good warming sensation. This tended to get excessively alcoholic as it warmed.
