Theydon_Bois (14337) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2012
Bottle at home, from the brewery shop, during the Fullers Vintage mass online tasting - 11/12/12. Bottle #14779. Pours a slightly hazed orange brown with an off white head that quickly dissipates leaving a few small bubbles atop the glass. Nose comprises sweet sugars, toffee apple, rhubarb, prunes, orange, fruit cake and a hint of booze. Tastes of sweet toffee, sugars, bread pudding with syrup, dried fruits, caramel, touch of booze but very well integrated. Full bodied, fine carbonation, smooth on the palate. Overall a very good vintage, sweet complex and well balanced.

Oakes (13966) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2006
Light amber-brown colour. Bright. Thin, caramel-tinged head. The aroma might be the best ever for this beer - an outstanding and extremely appetizing blend of spice (mace, cumin), malts (earth, caramel), yeast (shiitake, light sweat) and firm alcohol (white pepper, proper Russian vodka). Full body. Rich caramel and earthy malts highlight a brilliantly-balanced character, alongside a surprisingly complex and enjoyable alcohol blast. This is tempered by a depth of toffee. The finish is again just amazingly balanced between peppery alcohol and toffeeish sweetness. By far and away the best Fullerís Vintage Iíve had. Magnificent, well worth the seven bones. I donít know what the rest of you guys have been drinking, but bottle no. 58573 was pure genius. (Purchased at Brewery Creek).

bhensonb (12971) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle No. 70846. Rich roasted malt aroma with fruit/berry overtones. Dark amber color with a voluminous beige/tan head. Medium to full in body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is roasted malt, a fair amount of heat, darkish fruit with wood notes. Vinous. Suggestive of oak aged sherry - well aged. The finish is fairly dry, balanced with bitter. The whole thing runs a gamut from fruit to malt and back. Just outstanding.

Tmoney99 (12420) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Bottle #83433. Poured clear deep amber with a huge frothy light brown head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Good well balanced hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Good well balanced flavor with a heavy balanced and small alcohol tone finish of moderate duration. Very good brew that should age well.
