Bottle # 01980:
Pours clear dark amber with a fluffy head. Sweet and malty aroma with some notes of cherries and Canadian whisky. Not much whisky when it come to flavour, instead there’s cherries, wood and alcohol. I’m disappointed.

Botella. Courtesy of Plovmand. Clear dark amber colour. Aroma of dark fruits and malt bit sweet. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a pleasant toasted maltiness with dark fruits, caramel and some bitterness.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s pre NYE tasting. Amber with a thin off white head. Looks like most Fullers Vintage ales. Cheap single malt aroma with a little soap. Really not working for me. Mellow whisky flavour that seems in no way integrated with what seems like a fairly standard variant of the vintage ale underneath. Boring finish with some wooden accents. Feels like a poor attempt to me.

Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2009
From Voldby, DK. Bottled, 230109. Amber with small head. Aroma of wood, vanilla and malt. Flavor is caramel with balanced whisky tone.

omhper (23728) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2009
Bottled. Clear amber, rich head. Oaky vanilla aroma. Sweet with strong whisky flavour. Solid caramelly body with that does not marry well with th whisky, making the beer somewhat one-dimensional.
