Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2003
[Sampled December 6, 2003] The aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of berries especially cowberries. The color is orange/red and it has a beutiful beige head. The flavor is lovely sweet malty with notes of fruit and cowberries. The alcohol runs prickling over the tongue. A very nice beer. After having tried 5 different vintages over the course of 2 months, I'll conclude, that this beer has to age for atleast 2 years and will keep the high quality up to atleast 6 years of age.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark amber with a thick, creamy, off-white head leaving a pretty lacework. Vinous nose with lots of alcohol. Full-bodied, sherry notes and a touch of overripe fruit. Underneath everything is a pleasant, warming alcohol. Dry, lightly bitter finish. Another grand vintage ale from Fullers. 231005

omhper (19953) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2002
Red-brown. Very malty, full bodied, bitter and complex. When tasted side by side with the 1999 vintage this is less vinuous, and still tasted a tad sugary. Neverthe less a great strong ale.

madmitch76 (16111) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
31st July 2008. Very sweet beer. Pronounced red fruity start, raspberries plus subtler strawberry and cherry. This is followed by a sweet creamy malt with a whisper of milk chocolate. The abv is well disguised in this easy drinking complex beer.

Bottle No. 04843
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Beautiful malt aroma, fruity; Porto wine; sweet, fresh wood. I may feel more if all those bastards around me would stop smoking!
Powerful mouthfeel, malty, liquorice, caramel, light wallnuts.
Long finish, bearing both hop bitterness and bitter maltiness (and liquorice, and light litchie fruitness).
Wonderful. Would like to taste it in another couple of years.
