Pours copper colored with about a inch of head. Aroma has a malty caramel character. Flavor is medium sweet with still medium hop bitterness to the finish. Caramel malts, alcahol bite. Fizzy carbonation, full bodied and oily texture. Overall a really enjoyable beer in the end of long day, it has as strong yet balanced character.

Hazy orange, complex fruity and malty flavor and aroma, very smooth. Can taste target, fuggles and Golding hops. Great beer, more like a cognac than Golden Pride. Will try it again, definitively.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper in colour with a moderate off-white head, good lacing. The aroma is of alcohol, some vanilla, caramel malts and even a bit of liquorice. The flavour is of light alcohol, some chocolate, caramel malt sweetness, moderate bitterness. Lightly sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long and sweet with some alcohol warmth. Its good but like all the Vintage Ales the do get better after a few years.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle no. 106077. Pours a clear ruby color with a small white head. A Fullers nose of yeast, toffee and fruit. The flavor is medium toffee, more yeast, marmalade, some really nice port elements, fruity hops, a very sweet version pushing toward a BW, a bit of hops all through. Very solid beer as always with this series.

Bottle at home, from the brewery, #89145 16/03/14.
Slow gusher warning - first time Iíve had that with a Fullers Vintage !
Very lightly hazed rich amber with a good sized beige head that soon collapses to a thin covering mid glass.
Nose is rich caramel, light booze, dark fruit, woody, prunes, dates, pinch of spice, nutmeg.
Taste comprises mellow dark fruits, fruit cake mix, dates, prunes, candied dry fruit peel.
Medium + bodiment, fine carbonation, sweetish licks in the close.
Ok stuff, left this one going for a good 80/90 minutes and the taste never really developed. Decent enough but far from the best in this range maybe try another one in a few years?
