95,000 bottles were produced for 2004ís Vintage, which once again employed a traditional approach, this time brewed with Goldings hops and Maris Otter malt. Distinctive cherry notes are evident, before a warming finish that mellows with age. Also limited availability in the Cask, mainly in the London area.

Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2007
Bottled - sampled December 2007. A deep red beer with a medium tan head. The aroma is sweet and vinous with notes of plums, alcohol, raisins, berries, caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet malty with vinous notes of prunes, alcohol, rhum, caramel, and spices. Nice one.

Bottled. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is raisins, caramel and toffee. Flavour is caramel malts, some alcohol, raisins and some spicyness. Not much vintage notes in this one yet, but will probably become such within a few years.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Bottle #34629. Pours a hazy, nutty brown with a small, off-white head leaving some lacework. Aroma of prunes and overripe fruit. Quite full-bodied with lots of dried fruit accents - prunes in particular. The alcohol is extremely prominent in the finish also suffering from a somewhat brutal bitterness making this version less round and subtle than previous vintages. 020707

omhper (23716) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2015
Bottled, thanks Boudicca! Vertical with 2014. Darker amber than 2014, small head. Dusted ripe fruit and caramel dominate the nose. Caramel and slight cardboard, mature ripe fruits. Some brown sugar and raisins, notes of hay. Low-medium bitterness. The hop character is all gone. Over the edge, Iím afraid.

madmitch76 (22385) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
4th August 2008. Bottle 94057. Very complex aged ale. Caramel dominates the start but there is also a nice sherry flavour. A little milk chocolate in the mid plus red fruit you would find in a decent vintage port. Sumptuous and tasty.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2006
Aged 2 years
Dark amber color, with a spectacular, generous, creamy head. The aroma is malty, not too strong, with caramel, light spices, hazelnuts, showing some complexity. Malty taste, with loads of caramel; the mouthfeel is drier than usual, but becoming rounder when the beer is really warmer. The final is long, bitter with a lot of caramel. Less impressive than other vintages.
