Fin (7351) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, - JAN 7, 2013
Stopped regular rating 22nd Oct 2012 so this is one of one of my occasional ratings, had this for the Online Mass Rating for Fullers Vintage on 11th December 2012 This beer was better than the 2004 but maybe not quite as good as the 2011. Plenty of orange and whilst quite sweet, it is a sweetness that works rather well. Fruity with a hefty maltiness, some toffee and quite warming but not to heavy on the alcohol front, it has definitely mellowed with age. Reasonable carbonation, looks good and drinking very well.

- 500ml bottle - Colour: brown with a creamy head - Head: thick creamy when poured which reduces as drank - Aroma: sweet, mantle and strong alcohol scent - Taste & Texture: smooth, bitter, caramelly with a strong alcohol aftertaste - Verdict: very enjoyable, would drink a few, but dangerously high in alcohol content!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sizzler80 (447) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 29, 2014
Courtesy of Garthicus. Reddish brown pour with a thin off-white head. Very Trappiste Ale like. Vinous, strong malty caramel backbone, redcurrants, booze, earthy, woodchip, slight clove and nutmeg, hints of tangerine peel. Smooth on the palate and full bodied. This is the only Fullerís Vintage Ale I have tried and itís extremely good.

berkshirejohn (4443) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle number 18123 opened in March 2014. Copper coloured with a ring of cream head; rich, raisiny aroma with a touch of spice; thick and oily texture, with caramel and mellow, vinous fruits, but also with a surprisingly sharp bitterness giving some dry spice; the finish has more raisins and sultanas. This seems to have aged better than other years.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2014
Bottled. Amazing aroma with fermented fruits, a bit like port wine. The taste is not the best, but still awesome. Fruit, licorice, coffee. The finish is one of the longest Iíve had. Just great.
