3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours a handsome clear amber color with a small creamy white head and lacings. A fresh bottle for sure. Very hoppy nose and though ive had the earlier vintages young as well, this is quite different. Nose is hops, fruit and buiscuit. Smooth and full palate. Alcohol well hidden. Taste is buiscuit, grain, caramel, toffee and grassy and perfumy hops. A very fine, though still young , Fullers Vintage!

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 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
On pouring, a lovely raisiny aroma, but in the glass itís less sweet and less raisiny. Still pleasantly so, but thereís a wateriness to it, a touch of minerals even. Thinnish when cold, but on a little warming fills out nicely. Sweetish malts, woody, a little nutty. Lacking the bitterness of hops that other vintages have had. Definitely much better as it warms. Probably not worth cracking opening the next bottle for 3-5 years, this feels like it needs to autolyse and age abit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
