Extra Strong Vintage Ale 2009 by Coopers Brewery Limited

Posted by BeerMaven | Beer Reviews | Posted on May 31st

What a treat this was in this month’s beer shipment! Coopers Vintage Ale is unlike any beer I’ve ever tried. It’s been aged for 3 years and is unfiltered. As you pour it you’ll notice the cloudy deep caramel color and a thick head. Sweet flavors dominate the aroma and initial taste of the beer. As the tastes settle in your mouth spicy flavors such as gingerbread and licorice appear. Earthy hops balance out the sweetness just enough. This beer is fun to drink because of its complexity.
