talk about full bodied! the richness of the malts just fill the mouth and coat the tongue. most of fullers' beers smell the same to me, they just have accents in different places, it is like that whole tomato tomaato thing. ok so i dont know how to type that but whatever. malty with some diacetyl and a hint of earthiness in the nose. lots of malt in the flavor with other flavors jumping in to keep it exciting. they include alcohol, plums, slight hint of earthy hops, and lots of foffe flavors in the finish. for such a full bodied beer this one clears out of the mouth quite well, it is a very clean beer.

great full body aroma, red/coper color. the taste seems dry and fruity, and the finish is with a strong hoppy contrast.

BOTTLE 33353: The appearence is dark amber and murky. The head is thin and off white with slight lacing. The smell is of hops, fermenting apples, and a strong odor of english malts. Surprisingly the beer is not an overpoweringly sickly-sweet terror, but rather a mellow slightly bitter, full flavor, with hints of fruit.

Bottle Number 37145. What a fucking good bottle of beer! A quite serious (and serious-looking) ale! Bottle conditioned and made from Champion Optic malted barley this mellow-tasting and deliciously complex vintage Ale cheered me up and gave me the warm fuzzies all insider. After carefully pouring it into a Trappist glass- to avoid the sediment- it revealed a lacy, lingering head with a strong, sweet, caramel aroma. And such a unique taste to the tongue. I was reminded, perhaps, of a well-aged brie covered in exquisite truffles. Also hints of raisins. No matter how you slice it, a terrific beer!

FlemishChar (224) - Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2002
Bottle no. 38234. Beautiful sweet malt aroma. Huge, cream colored, dense head. Deep copper cast. Wonderfully complex, with spicy, biting, whiskeyish malt sweetness, peppery alcohol bite, and finish like that of brandy. Beautiful.

ztrvz (218) - st paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2003 smelled very oaky. this stuff EXPLODES with flavor. carmely, nutty. pretty thick in the mouth due to the carbonation, but not heavy. each sip made me want to smile. bubbly. i drank this a while ago, but it's left a lasting impression.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2003
#41892. Not my cup of ale really. Too hoppy and burnt rather than toasted. Very expensive. I like the 1845 much, much better.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - OCT 6, 2002
No. 41723. Clear amber color. Head was pretty impressive even with a total "soft" pour. Nose is very yeasty and malty with a hint of whisky. Taste is sweet up front and ends with just a little bitter kick. This beer can be described as thick, kind of like a barleywine on the palate. Iím impressed with this ale overall.

very sweet malt aromas, clear garnett color with a nice sized initial head, sweet but full of alcohol and unbalanced bitterness, heavy english palate
