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

thellgren (712) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 3, 2016
Small tasting glass @ brewery tasting room. Vineous character, tastes like sherry. Very smooth. Spices and hops are gone after 9 years. Left are fruit like aromas. Great stuff.

Bottle #26488. Muddy burnt orange, light skiff cap. Aroma of caramel, plum, raisin, brown sugar. Taste is sweet, and bitter. Palate is medium-low carbonation and a bit tingly on the tongue. A mixture of sticky and thin finish.

Scouser (332) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Pours a cloudy amber colour with no lacing or head. Aroma raisin, butterscotch. Tastes just like it smells l, raisins, butterscotch, alcohol(sherry), and a bit of sweet orange. I donít normally comment on palate....but this one leaves a "buttery" film in the mouth; nice. A very good beer!

500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Hazy amber color. Tiny to almost no head. Sweet, raisins, plums and prunes in aroma. Nice sparky aroma. Caramel, raisins, plums, sweet in taste. Raisins and caramel in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Faint hops. Feels just a tiny bit old. Nice brew.

suurjuust (2736) - ESTONIA - DEC 12, 2015
Hazy orange beer, almost no head. Nose is vanilla, plummy notes, caramel, soft malt notes, lots of sweetness. Flavor is pretty sugary, fruity, plummy. Finish is oxidized, but smooth, pretty caramelly, malt, a memory of hop bitterness. Nice.

TorbenJensen (1439) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2015
All bottles are numbered, and my bottle is no. 18069. The foam is fairly stable and the smell is full of fruit and malt. The fruit is heavy and most reminiscent of plum and berries. It tastes sweet of the fruit, and it has a richness that is bold and only slightly affected by alcohol. The sweet taste is kept nice in place of the slightly fruity aftertaste which together with a little alcohol provides a warm and slightly vinous character.

Dacrza (800) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2015
DATE TASTED: January 11, 2015... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... OCCASION: Golden Globes and an ice delay--good combo... APPEARANCE: dark brown opaque body that holds a decent off-white head; lacing dissipates quickly; heads ends in a swirl... AROMA: musty, winy, grapelike funk that yawn with cinnamon, currants, malts and some vodka fumes (?!)... PALATE: impressively mellow, unsurprisingly warming and full-bodied; promises to be a night in a bottle ...TASTE: dry with raisins and grapes, currants and some subtle flowery hops; malts push an equally persuasive base--formidable... OVERALL: a complex, thick, demanding beer that cellared well--eight years in the maintaining!--that is perfect for a night of awards and bad weather...

gramity (1600) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Sweet dark fruity good cellar like hoppy aroma. Very good filling mouthfeel. Sweet bit yeasty very nice dark fruity flavour with bitter hops, alcohol and well toasted caramel. Port wine like beer. Good well balanced strong ale.
