Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2009
Bottled. An amber beer with a light tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, metal, alcohol, and hints of oxidation. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal from the alcohol, and a slight oxidation combined with some over ripe fruits, leading to a bitter finish. The alcohol tickles the tongue.

(Bottle 50 cl) Bottle #52466. Clear, warm amber golden with an off-white head. Aroma of wood and overripe fruit. Very full-bodied with a solid caramel and malt base with woody notes. Thereís a distinct and almost burning alcohol in the finish that also contains a slightly brutal bitterness. 071007

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2006
Bottled (44659). Dark amber colour, huge beige creamy longlasting head, lacing. Aroma is nuts, alcohol and huge hoppyness. Quite sweetish fruity hops. Flavour is nuts, alcohol and hops. A bit weak wineish hints, but it feels like it will be better after a few years in the cellar. Needs to settle a bit flavourwise.

omhper (19192) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2007
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Cloudy dark ruby. Fruity salty nose with some glue. Sweet, yeasty and fruity. Woody and syrupy with near full body and sticky mouthfeel. A bit raw an immature with green apples in syrup. Still feels young, but with no potential of going anywhere - sort of like a 29 year old athlete still without any success.

Fullerís Vintage Ales are a good excuse to use my beautiful original glass from Cuvťe de líErmitage Grand Cru. It pours a wonderful dark amber color, with a huge creamy head. In the beginning I get a quick impression of rum; the aroma is not particularly strong, malty. Full bodied, quite silky texture; a well balanced caramel takes the great share in the taste, and it becomes stronger drier and darker to the end. Warming. Well made, flawless, very solid, but not exciting. Is it my flavor? I canít find anymore the spell of the first Vintage Ales I tasted a few years agoÖ

Cloudy amber - brown beer. Creamy head. Sweet milky malt nose, a tad oxidised. Slightly soft palate, a little dry. Milky sweet malt, a little orange, toffee caramel. Spicy finish with a carbonated bite. Decent but nowhere near the best of the vinatges.
