Fantastic. A great depth of flavour, with an aroma to match. One to savour and drink slowly.

Not bad. I was hoping for a little better based on the buzz about the 1999 vintage. It's a tad strong, and feels more like whiskey when you drink it, but all in all, a good pint.

Excellent brew! Aroma reminds me of whiskey or brandy, with a touch of fruitiness added. The color is perfect, crystal clear amber, with a whitish, not-too-thick head. The taste is like whiskey as well, or more like Southern Comfort with a little carbonated water and malt added. That's a compliment, too. The alcohol is intense, though, and I feel it all the way down. Sometimes it, along with the slightly bitter finish is a little TOO intense (take a sip then open your mouth and inhale...you will see), and and that is the only reason this one doesn't get an even higher rating. It's a little off-balance IMHO but otherwise a very good year!

Wonderful fruity pear and apricot aroma. Bought 1 drank it then went back to the store and bought the rest of them. Drink your Bud and leave me the rest of the good stuff. Fullers can do nothing wrong. #22501

I didn't even know Roger Maris had an otter. Despite that, this is an excellent beer, with plenty of malt and hops. It would taste better with a little aging, but who's complaining.

An amazing tasting brew. I don't know if I have ever tasted, smelled or looked at a finer brew.

Sweet, malty, full-bodied, smooth, wonderful... This is an awesome brew. The head is great, as is the amber color in my glass. The aroma was sweet and inviting. Excellent beer...one of only 30,000 made this year (I guess they cut production). Gotta get some more before its all gone. I even turned the bottle upside down and shook it to make sure I got the last drop!
