The Champion theme was used once again for this classic Vintage Ale with Champion Fuggles and Champion Optic malt. Slightly redder in appearance, this ale is full of body with a sherry-like flavour.

Dedollewaitor (13925) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2009
55cl bottle. Bottle nr. 14775. Pours dark amber/brown with a small creamy white head and lacings. Nose is deep malty and complex. Lots of dark fruits, caramel, bread, toffee and vanilla. Oily, smooth and full bodied. A lot like a vintage Port Wine. Vinous, well aged. Vague notes of cellar and dust. A true sipper. Warming, smooth and just delicious.

harrisoni (13799) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle at Kookfest 06. Hazy chestnut, lasting beige. I do like the hop on this. Quite soft in mouth. Creamy and then harsh hop on end.

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle, 55cl. Bottle # 02056. A light copper to amber colored beer, pouring clear, and topped by a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma has some oxidation and alcohol, as well as caramel, dried fruits and a little camphor touch. Nice bitterness in the flavor, along with caramel, oxidation, some camphor and a faint mint touch. Full-bodied, smooth and lightly warming on the palate, and with a lasting finish. Certainly in good condition even though itís more than 12 years since its release. 120106

Oakes (12639) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2000
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2003 Sampled 2003: Hazy orange amber; chewy, old-tasting, woody and sweet. Decent, but a little long in the tooth.

Travlr (11983) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks. Murky brown color, scant white edge head. Aroma of butterscotch and light spice. Taste is rich, fruity, caramel and scotch. Very nice.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 (Bottle No: 67684) Pours a beautiful deep mahogany color with a medium-sized white head. Very smooth, almost like a fine barley wine, with cream, carmel and malt flavors. Very good!

Rich, malty, & liqueur-ish. The fuggles lend good balance. Some fruitiness, caramel sweetness, and some vanilla(?). Iíve gotta get me another bottle and stash it away for aging.
