4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle No. 118663. Pours a clear, brilliant copper with a good foamy light beige head. Aromas of nicely roasted caramel and floral hop. Near full bodied with really foamy carbonation. Flavor is spicey, floral hoppy over a nice roast malt. Suggests a tobacco note in a way. Also quite fruity. The spicey hot bits hit the tongue. This is a smooth and drinkable ale. Love it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2011 Cask at GBBF 2009. Amber with a small white head. Malty aroma with fruit and a hint of orange peel and marmalade. Sweet toffee flavour with a roasted note, and hot alcohol. Here is why they are labeled vintage: They should NOT be drunk fresh! I definitely need a few for the cellar.
July 2010 at home: Bready malt and fresh grain in the nose, with orange and other citrus, and peppery spice. Malty flavour with lots of fruit and some spice and cherry. Nice and dry with a fruity sweetness, but still rather hot alcohol.
May 2011: Adds a honey note to the aroma, and a bit more malt richness in flavour. But still unsophisticated raw alcohol after nearly two years. Doesnít seem like the best vintage

Bottle. Poured copper color with medium white frothy head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Medium toasted malt and dough aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to moderate duration. Good interesting brew.

Bottle, thanks SÝren.
Finished off with this after 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008.
Pours completely clear amber with a nice, small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, malts, light biscuity and with some herbal, spicy hops. Highish carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, malty, light citric and vinious. Quite delicious but still rather young.
