Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
After my poor year old Fullers Vitage 2011 this was great. The initial flavour was uncooked bread, and oranges. The beer poured an amber colour with a caramel, quick clearing head. The taste was spirits, warm alcohol, oranges and was malty rich, The beer was nice and will be a re buy each year now. Fullers are costing me too much!

Skinnyviking (6976) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. High creamy long lasting off-white head. Beautiful deep dark amber body. Sweet and mild apple pear wood caramel aroma with a hint of alcohol as well. Surprisingly bitter flavor with heavy notes of armanac and alcohol combined with caramel and vanilla. Extremely high amount of carbonation and a long bitter finish. A bit too agressive on the alcohol level. Some storage would undoubtedly do this beer good.
