Bottle. Copper color, off-white head. Slightly oaky aroma. Smooth, full flavor with juicy malts and pretty good balance for the ABV. Full body, medium carbonation. This is reminiscent of Fuller’s Vintage Ales. Nice! fletchfighters (1590) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2013
clear chestnut color, off whit half finger of head. Good strips of lacing. Borup (15556) - Albertslund, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2013
nose is caramel, nuts, and malt. very rich nose.
taste is pretty much in line with the nose. exception being some good balance with citrus from the hops. Adds a bit of a wooded character to the beer. Nice.
Medium feel and carbonation. Just a slight bit heavy. Nice beer though

Bottle. Pours a dark coppery brown with a decent, yellowish-brown head. Aroma is quite a bit of caramel, some house flavor of orange marmalade/pen sharpener shavings. Taste is quite dry with a lot of caramel, light house flavor, stiffly flowery, even a bit lemony bitterness. Fairly full, well carbonated.
