3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Beautiful amber color; still. The aroma is simple. The mouthfeel is strong, with some good sweet malt, a bit oily, but nothing special. A bit warming. Powerful but not impressive.
A bottle is awaiting in the cellar, for better days...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle. Actually my first fullers vintage ale, though the rest of the bottles in the series is within my reach. Poured into my girlfriends "De Ranke" glass. Poured amber/copper with a creamy off white head. Wonderfull aroma of dark malts, caramel, alcohol and quite a bit of hops. Low carbonation & a medium (full bodied) filling smooth body/texture. Overall good balance, not as sweet as expected and a lot more hoppier than expected (Fresh hops). Light warmth from alcohol. Sticky palate. Perhaps a "sipper style of beer", but I could drink this all night! Dope! Cant wait to taste the rest!
