COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Vintage Ale with an aroma which incorporates spicy hop notes with rich fruit character and leads on to a very full malty, fruity, sweet palate which has a surprisingly clean finish coupled with a matching bitterness.
I have handcrafted this beer from the finest Fuggles, Target and Super Styrian hops, Maris Otter malted barley and of course, our unique yeast to create a truly extraordinary unique brew. - John Keeling, Brewmaster

Its time, the label says best by end of 2010 bottle #129078. 2007 vintage. Pours a off-white one finger head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Hazy amber color, with some yeast left in bottle. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light caramel nose. Flavor is some caramel, toffee, higher ABV is hidden. Very light bitter finish. $6.99 for a 500ml bottle from Capitol Convenience Concord, NH (now closed). Hereís what I wrote in May 2002 for a 2000 Vintage: Strong carbonation and head, malty, good after taste, smells like a triple. Too bad it is limited to 85,000 bottles but maybe it is a good idea - at $9.95 for 500ml one could go broke.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle No. 110817. Poured a honey brown color with a thick beige head. Full rich yeasty, malty, brown sugar, bread aroma. Flaor is perfectly melded with dark fruit and yeast. Not as hot as the earlier versions it seems. Alcohol is quite subdued perhaps due to the young age of this one. Really a nice beer and the best of the 4 year vertical I had.

SaintMatty (5518) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2010
500ml Bottle - Amber with lively carbonation and a foamy head. Rich and enticing vinous aroma with notes of dried fruit, hops, whisky and fruit cake. Nicely balanced taste with notes of spicy malt, hops and notes of raisins, caramel and citrus.

ContemplateBeer (1580) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Aroma of raisin, almonds, toffee, resiny hops and a tough of curacao. Appearance is ruddy brown\red with tan head. Flavor matches the nose; the hops round out the finish. Palate is creamy and lively. Very nice, and my favorite of the series so far.

PaulHegedus (85) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle, three years in the cellar. Snifter. Copper colour, no head. Wonderful aroma: fresh fig, raisin, candy sugar, very sweet and fruity. Full bodied and thick. Malt forward flavour of dark fruit. More fig, toasted malt, caramel, raisin, date. Booze has mellowed. Maybe a slight hint of tobacco in there. Finish is very long with dark fruity malt. Superb.

Brown, amber colored brew. Aroma of dried fruits, some hops. Flavor has a good amount of maltyness, dried fruits, caramel, spices and a slighty burned, roasted finish. Boozy, portlike character in the end.

Bottle, #137951. A few of these just showed up on the shelf at Specs recently, and I happened to spot it. Hazy caramel colored ale, nice and thick. Smells of caramel and fruity maltiness. Tastes like caramel and some fruit and alcohol with significant hops up front and more malt coming through in the aftertaste. Nice overall, not my favorite, but Iím glad I got to try it.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2012 Bottle, 50cl. Bottle # 18172. A dark golden beer topped by a small, beige head. Alcohol, dried fruits, dark sugar and some honey hints on the nose. The flavor is lightly alcoholic and sugary, with a pleasant bitterness. Warming, full-bodied and nicely carbonated. A bit rough and sugary this one, but quite nice anyway. Rating: 6-3-7-4-13-3.3. 120106

Bottle. A slightly hazy, golden beer topped by a small off-white head. The aroma is a pleasant mix of fruity, peachy hops, port like alcohol notes and maltyness. Thereís some caramel in the flavor, and a nice bitterness, else itís much like the aroma. Full-bodied and warming, with a dry, bitter finish where thereís some roasted like notes. A lovely one. 100115
