4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dutch Ratebeer Gathering. Sampled in 2007 (5 years old). Orange coloured, off-white head, chunks of yeast. Aged aroma, yeast, liquor, pretty strong. Vanilla notes with toffee and caramel, very nice malty flavour. Once and awhile some lactic notes shine through. Towards the end some sticky sweetness, liquorice and hops. Oily texture. Good, although i expected the age to shine through a bit more than it actually did. Thanks jbrus for sharing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2004 #900th rating. Bottle at the White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Sweet and buttery beer. Rich malt, tongue tingling sweetness annoyingly with goldings hops, which i am not a fan of. Bitter acidic finish. Alcohol, alcohol alcohol - itís not exactly refined but itís a very nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2006 Caramel toffee aroma with a touch of choc and yeast. Brown with small head. Sweet caramel with a yeasty mid and sweet though dry finish. Smooth. Nice. ReRate (-1 Overall): Sweet but balanced with a lovely spiced finish. Very morish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost no head at all slight spiciness with an alcohol aroma. Flavor was ok but i feel this would be a much better brew if it had some more age.I will rerate this again in 1 year after the other 3 can grow some more hair on them.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big and SUPER clear red ale with a perfect, creamy white head. The aroma is unbelievably rich with a huge similarity to a Belgian bun. That is really amazing tasty. Creamy and floury with a beautiful browned pastry flavour and an Earl Grey soaked raisin. Some cheap powdery chocolate and lovely vinilla there too. I think that is fricking tasty. This is a very special beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[550ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Hazy red pour with a fluffy white head. Fruity nose, very mellow. Sweet fruit cake and marzipan, although thereís an undercurrent of harshness throughout. Iíd heard amazing things about this Ė indeed Iíve written amazing things about the 1999 vintage. This one was nice, but a tad muted. Maybe it just hasnít aged well Ė could be one of those things

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the White Horse in London, England.
Enticing aroma. Notes of grapefruit, lemon, apricot, vanilla and caramel.
Full-bodied and flavorful but hot down the throat and the cloying syrupy sweetness was just too much. Notes of apricot, tea, tangerine, wood and orange. The hops were nice and sought to balance but failed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Straw malty nose. Much less sweetness than the í99. Very earthy taste that reminds me of the way rabbit food smells. Lots of caramel and smoke. Thanks to maelb and Kevin42 for making this tasting possible.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 10 years old. Hazy dark red amber with a average, frothy, lacy, lasting, beige head. Smells of figs, plums, raisins, cherries and sweet malt, caramel, that after years has smoothed out to leather, wood and dark bread. Full oily smooth and smooth. Sweet taste of trail mix: Nuts, dried fruit, raisins with caramel, malt, and lightly toasted malt. Some alcohol lingers but its been smoothed out over time. Wood and leather with that vintage aged dry bitter finish. Liquid figs. So smooth to sip, I enjoyed throughout the night. Biscuit goodness.

Don Bible, now thereís some memories. Weíve finished all these beers and itís 3:00 in the morning, our palates are pretty much shot and he breaks out a Fullers Vintage Ale. Well, what can you do, drink it I guess. Dark orange appearance. Nice fruity aroma. Smooth, very malty body. Finishes relatively bitter. Good beer, best before 3:00.
