Paras koskaan juomani olut, omasta mielestäni. Todella täyteläinen ja pehmeä, ei lainkaan kitkerä. cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2007
Moderate malty aroma. Large creamy initial apperance. Light brown head. Excellent lacing. Clear amber body. Heavy sweet initial flavor. Medium palate. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle No. 77384: Great pour, a dark amber body with a thick ’n’ creamy ecru head that laces in rings marking each swallow. It has a woody malt aroma, quietly sweet, with a touch of molasses and a small whiff of alcohol. Very smooth drinking, like a fine brandy. The malt tastes mildly fruity and has a touch of toffee to it. There’s a peppery spiciness and the soft presence of alcohol. An earthy, herbal bitterness emerges in the finish to round the drink out nicely. This should age very well. Every year presents another welcome treat from Fullers.johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2007

Sweet malty nose with some characters of root vegetables (parsnip?) and molasses. Looks perfect - deep amber, off-white firm head of perfect consistency, persistant lacing. Again, as in prior years, the flavour doesn’t disappoint - this remains quite possibly the best English offering year upon year, with each successive bottling developing on the one before. The flavour on this one starts with the characteristic apricoty malt, which then develops into a long, rich, mulled wine finish with an underpinning bitterness that balances with a biscuity dryness perfectly. A slight interlacing vinous, resiny sharpness completes the picture for this outstanding and complex vintage.

Pours a dark copper/amber color with a nice sized head that last quite a while. The smell seems a liitle week, not much presence to it. The taste is very good. Very refrshing and smooth to drink. The hop level seems perfect for a smooth but not over hoppy brew. Very drinkable as well.

Bottle #45789, courtesy of John White. Amber bronze, excellent lasting fluffy off white head and good condition. Pleasant initial low chocolate and marmalade aromas leading to a toffee sweetness. A little too sweet in the mouth and quite full bodied with toffee maltiness and a gentle peppery hop bitterness, Spicy peppery bitter sweet finish with some chocolate sweetness and a gentle hop bitterness, some orange notes lingering and a touch of nuttiness

Bottle. 83981. Rich amber beer with a beige head. Floral hop aroma with some sweet caramel. Sweet toffee/caramel flavor with floral/earthy hops and some citrus. Medium bodied. Well balanced.Nothing special at this point. BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2007
Sweet smelling, nice colour, good head. Thick and syrupy taste, sweet and fruity but also slightly bitter malty aftertaste that is absolutely amazing. shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2007
Amazing how much this changes year to year. This sample was excellent. Fruity and pungent aroma (apple, dried apricot) and followed up by exceptional dryness, slight exotic spiciness and enough toffee malts to make the alcohol actually seem like it was part of the equation, like a fine sherry. A bit toasty, but mild. Balanced, mealy, highly drinkable and complex.
