downender (6696) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2014 Deep gold with a slight white head and little carbonation. This was tried alongside the 2007 and 2008 versions and came out on top. A touch of caramel, some pleasant fresh hops and a moderately bitter finish. Avoided the heavy, yeasty barley sugar notes of the other two. Enjoyable.

Dedollewaitor (14336) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours ruby amber with a small creamy head. Fresh hops, biscuit, toffee, caramel. A bit vinous and quite complex. Tasty and well composed. Much better than last year.

Klar djup orange med ett orange skum. Doft: Honung, frukt godis, pšron cider, yellow label te, alkohol. Smak: Malt, pšron, humle, trš, alkohol, tysk honungs likŲr, lite pigelin. Tror den blir kanon om den bara blir lite sŲtare med tiden.

bhensonb (11997) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle No. 105177. From The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark copper with a foamy yellow/beige head. Aromas of malt, darkish fruit and leather. Med + body. Flavor is roasty malt, a little brown sugar, something suggesting dates, notes of peppery spice. Very smooth. Brown sugar tries to come out, but thereís something hoppy that makes it less than sweet. Certainly not dry, but nicely hopped. Very, very good drink.

robinvboyer (3367) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a gorgeous mahogany redish brown with a big, frothy beige head. Lovely spicy, golding aroma, with solid caramel, cereal malts. The mouthfeel is thick and luscious, the alcohol is present, but not over bearing, just a tad warming and spicy. The finish is grassy with mote subtle spicing from the hops. One of the best fresh fullers vintage ales ive had.

Fin (8092) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle from Waitrose Headington, Oxford, consumed at home Sunday 22nd December 2013 This is absolutely superb, top draw stuff from Fullers. We had this alongside a Rochefort 10 and clearly whilst they are not the same beer there were many similarities, its got a nice spicy peppery warmth, its got some lovely dark, dark sticky sugars. Despite its age its smoother at this stage than many of the previous vintages. Serving this in a Belgian chalice certainly didnít didnít any harm either, Loz (a big Rochefort 10 fan) was struck by the similarities as well. A little barley sugar, there is also a little curly bitterness, its damn good vintage, loved it! A8 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.2

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Clean amber color, medium white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, ripe fruits, nuts, hints of honey, bread and alcohol. Taste has similar notes, bitter sweet and lightly dry with medium bitter hoppy finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Tasty and enjoyable.
