Bottle. From the brewery. Tasting at Ekstedt´s place. Amber/brown colour with a beige head. Aroma of wet wood, dust, earth, old potatoes, caramel, menthol. Malty and old flavor, earth/dust, cellar, caramel, wood, a bit vinous. Medium bitter. Low, but still existing carbonation. Still nice, but past it´s best before date. A bit too much dusty/earthy notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bbb63... Pours much similar to 1999 but overall with a much nod to caramely malt and not as complex as the 1999... Flavorwise are much of the same without as much of layers in the malt profile. Again a little thin but to be expected.

500ml shared by Fred. Thanks, Fred! Been a while since I’ve had a Fullers Vintage, and one whiff of the nose - a bit of sweet sherry, some toffee, and a lingering fruitiness - reminds of how well they pull off these complex, warming brews. Lovely amber color, deep fireplace vibe. Mouthfeel still has a bit of carbonation, surprising given its decade of existence. Slight oxidation in the taste, but overall very complex with a mellowed depth that is easy to admire and enjoy.

Thanks Bob’s friend Fred for sharing. Pours a copper amber with a one finger tan head. Nose is earthy and papery, oxidation/age, sweet with some caramel, mild alcohol. Flavor is oxidized and papery, sweet, some sherry, caramel malt, English feel with some leafy hop character. Palate lacked carbonation.
