Great head on a cloudy, oily-looking orange amber beer. Subtle, mellow nose, with orange, pepper, prune, caramel. Smooth and silky body. Nice caramel flavor, very well integrated, with orange, apple, spicy hops, and a nice, spicy, peppery hop finish. Soft carbonation, great body. Interesting, mellow, and well aged.

Bottle at home from my large stash of Fullers Vintages. Iíve drunk so much of the 1999 Vintage that this relatively recent 2007 was quite a surprise and very different indeed. Still quite young but it was an absolute delight. Orange/amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, almost like an aged Belgian Christmas beer. Definitely similar to Stille Nacht as the previous guy says. Tastes of caramel, dark fruit, port like, malty, spice, sweet. I could drink this every day. BEAUTIFUL!
