The 2013 Fullerís Vintage has been brewed using the winter barley variety ĎPearlí. The malt, combined with the award-winning Admiral and Sovereign hops, gives the 2013 Vintage a deep rich stone fruit palate, overlaid with cinnamon, pineapple and marmalade notes.

500 ml. pours a copper-amber with a lasting film of creamy bubbles. Big nose of earthy-spiced toffee, a bit of dark fruit and a touch of sweet orange. Rich tastes of toffee, bread pudding with sugary icing, dates and orange zest. Long finish of pith and toasted wood dries the big malts well and brings a nice balance. Medium-heavy body is smooth with a low carbonation.

Fukito (891) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - SEP 10, 2014
Hazy orange/ light copper color with a small beige head. Strong nice aroma of orange mermelade and brandy. Flavor is fruit cake with some fruity esthers and a slight sourness, short bitter-sweet aftertaste. A little watery and one dimensional and slight alcoholic burnt. Not bad, but expected more out of it...

kdm1984 (783) - Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Mahogany appearance with small, yet well-retained, head and thin rings of lacing. Aroma: red fruit, brandy, toffee, vanilla, brown sugar, Christmas, oak. Worth sniffing over and over! Flavor follows suit. A little too much carb on the palate for something this exquisite. Still, this is sooo good. And itís supposed to taste best 3-4 years after? Wow.

McNeillR (1632) - SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Dark coppery golden, hazy and thin bubbly track of a head. Coppery nose, cinnamon and nutmeg again. Brassy and softly bitter. Bit soapy and flatter than the previous vintage. Finishes rusty.

Nothing to shout about on this mediocre vintage ale. Very bland and i felt really short changed for the cost. There are far better Vintage Ales in the market, you just have to source them as this is not worthy.
