COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Floor malted Optic malt; Fuggles and Super Styrian hops.
Edition of 100,000
This full-bodied vintage is brewed with Fuggles and Super Styrian hops that create a tapestry of rich, spicy flavours. Orange, citrus and fruitcake notes are all present, and are balanced well with the biscuity, creamy malt flavours leaving a soft and warming finish.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2006
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours a deep copper colour with a thin white head. Aroma is alcoholic, malty and slightly spicy. Noticeable alcohol and hoppy bitterness to taste with some caramel and peppery notes. I have tried the last few vintages when they are very fresh like this and of all of them this is probably the least impressive Ė itís brash and lacking that rounded sweetness from previous vintages.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2006
Bottled at Horsens Beerfestival. Clear golden with a nice off-white head. Malty aroma with alcohol and some hops. Malty flavor as well, with beef-stock and some hops. Full body and a finish with alcohol and sweetness. Not mature enough yet, but a promising beer. (061028)

DuffMan (6153) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2006
Orange-red copper, slightly hazy with an initial large head that collapses to a thin pad. Nutty caramel aroma, sweet toffee palate, faintly fruity, and moderately bitter with some warming alcohol. Nice, but Iím glad I bought a second bottle to lay aside, as I think this will get even better in years to come.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2006
Something about a limited selection, vintages and numbered bottles. I picked up 12. This rating is from the 1st bottle #61490. Full head sinks down to a thin lasting layer. Golden copper. Very light toffee aroma. Nice thick body. Almost tastes like a malty IIPA. Different from past years. Big alcohol and candy notes.

mabjork (664) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2006
Bottled. (forgot to write down the damn batch number). Clear red/brown in colour. It has a fluffy and foamy white head. The aroma is toffee like and there are malty and sour scents as well. The flavour is filling, malty and a bit bitter.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - OCT 13, 2006
(Bottle No. 48877; BBE 2009) Toffee, alcohol and slightly roasted malty aroma. Amber colour, slightly hazy and average size, light brown, very slightly lasting head with fair lacing. Toffee, slightly fruity and very bitter flavour. Medium to full-bodied, softly carbonated, sticky and slightly alcohol (warming) palate. Very good strong ale! 08/10/06

beermouth (435) - Langeskov, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2006
Bottle # 24635. Clear deep amber with fine tan head. Wood, hops, spice and caramel. Lackís a bit balance, but it will come with age! Still young!

TBone (11888) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2006
Bottle #46017, BBE 2009. Clear dark copper brown, good tan head. Woody, ashy and nutty hoppy aroma with light notes of caramel and licorice. Liquerish mouthfeel. Licorice and alcohol dominates the flavors. Salty and hoppy finish. Needs cellaring to get more rounded, but nice as such already. Typical high-ABV Fullers it is.
