Bottle no 83207. Copper body with a tall head. Aroma has English hops and caramel. Taste is quite sweet with more caramel and fudge but the hop level keeps up with the sweetness. As half of the bottle is gone the sweetness starts becoming more apparent and takes control. This is obviously made for cellaring. I still prefer 1845 over the Vintages.

My wife grabbed this for me at supermarket along with a steak and asparagus as a way of saying your on your own tomorrow it all worked well together. Pours orange with one finger head and nose of malt and caramel although faint. Tastes of dried fruits and dried wood, caramel, plenty malty, resin, hop bitters, a little rock candy finish. Sweet on finish that Lingers.

500ml bottle, No. 57161, bought at The Fullers Brewery Shop last November. Served in a tulip glass after one hour in the fridge. Close to clear, amber coloured body. Cloudy last pour. Frothy, off-white head, spotty lacing. Satisfying duration. Floral, pale malts, and died fruity nose. Fine blend of resinous hops, grapes, and fresh citrus to the taste buds leading to a rather fresh bittersweet finish with noticeable alcohol. Clean and warm on the swallow. Nice sipper watching TIL and Brann on TV at home in Tromsø, 20.05.2013.

Really nice malt and caramel character. Very nice body--interested in seeing how this one will age. Excellent, smooth, and tasty beer. Well brewed.

Bottle numbered with #02587 from Vika enjoyed at home
Deep copper red, thin tanned head. Smells of fruity yeast esters, spices, malts and hints of hops. Heavy sweet, quite malty, fruity flavors, berries and some yeast. Moderate bitter finish. A quite excuisite brew. Just amazing how fruity and malty this is; all in harmony. Smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation

Pours a hazy orange/copper. Aroma is strong toffee and overripe apricot & raspberry. Taste is caramel, sticky dried fruit, spices. Mild carbonation. A pleasure <in my penile region>.
