3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,5l bottle number: 053576. Hardly any difference to 2008 version of Vintage ale. Golden brown with thick head, little carbonation. Smooth and very nice palate. Aroma is combination of raisins, caramel and syrup. Alcohol surprisingly well hidden.

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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Hazy, amber colour with a short and tanned foamy head. Vinous fruity aroma with notes of walnuts, shades of alcohol. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, full bodied with a pleasant carbonation. Dried fruit character with caramel, nuts, slightly vinous mouthfeel; lasting sweet and delicately bitter finish with notes of dried figs, but also an obvious touch of alcohol. 25.IX.13

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fullers Vintage Ale 2010 has an extremely thick, soapy, cream-colored head, an opaque, orange or bright amber appearance, lots of bubbles clinging to the side of the glass, and large lacing splotches left behind. The aroma is of rich, sharp, bread crust, caramel, metal, cellar mold, and slightly turned fruits, like dates or figs. Taste is of all those elements, with sweetness and a fairly noticeable bitterness to balance it out. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous to an extent, and Fullers Vintage Ale 2010 finishes mostly dry, a bit alcohilic, rich, and sip-able. Overall, I am really glad I tried it. RJT
