Ingredients: Floor malted Optic malt; Fuggles and Super Styrian hops.
Edition of 100,000

Tmoney99 (13344) - 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.

imdownthepub (13084) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2012
Bottled, 500 ml (No. 92,946) from Sainsburys in Banbury. Orange amber with white head. Full, fruity maltiness, quite smooth on the palate with an easy spiciness, rounded, cake like, followed by orange juice. It is all quite subtle and tasty. The close is a touch on the sweet side with a deep sultana hint. All very pleasant.

Christian (12717) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Amber with a lasting off-white head. Rich aroma of raisins. tangerine, prunes and toffee. Flavour is sweet, rich and complex, with dried fruits, licorice, alcohol and a little hop bitterness. Smooth and full mouthfeel, and very easy to drink despite the fruity sweetness - all in all, a wonderful botteld dessert.

Ferris (12431) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle - Vertical 2005 to 2008 - Raisin, toffee on the nose. Cloudy brown with a tiny head. Brown sugar, raisin and the usual port suspects and some light alcohol to the end. More like a barley wine and no bitterness. The best example in this vertical.

bierkoning (12280) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2006
Bottle # 45284. Red amber color. Light malt and hoparoma, still in the bud. Fine hopbitter flavor, raisinny, oily, slightly earthy and alcoholic. Just a touch of salt. Malty sweetish. Long hopbitter aftertaste. Will develop further with cellaring, no doubt.

Scopey (12247) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle at Chrisoís Fullers-Gales Tasting (thanks to Chris). It pours clear deep amber, with a thin white lace. The nose is gingerbread, fig, nut, wood, orange peel and spice. The taste is wood, leather, dust, spice, fig, raisin, nut and alcohol warmth, with a dry finish. Full body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Not as sweet and syrupy as previous vintages. Has stood the test of time.
