berkshirejohn (6611) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle number 18123 opened in March 2014. Copper coloured with a ring of cream head; rich, raisiny aroma with a touch of spice; thick and oily texture, with caramel and mellow, vinous fruits, but also with a surprisingly sharp bitterness giving some dry spice; the finish has more raisins and sultanas. This seems to have aged better than other years.

Tranquillity (2480) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottled. Amazing aroma with fermented fruits, a bit like port wine. The taste is not the best, but still awesome. Fruit, licorice, coffee. The finish is one of the longest I’ve had. Just great.

Bottle from John’s Marketplace via Phil. Pours a medium brown, very little head. Aroma dried fruit, caramel, toffee. Body medium but with a lingering sweetness. Not my thing, but superb.

Bozo_skeleton (1164) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 5, 2014
Noël ça a du bon, surtout lorsque l’on découvre une Fullers Vintage Ale 2006 au pied du sapin !!! C’est parti...je me retrouve avec la bouteille 298 (sachant qu’il y’en a eu 10000 de produite). Robe ambrée sombre et voilée, carbo très faibl, petit collet de bulle très fine qui laisse une belle dentelle sur le verre. Arômes très fruité sur les fruits noirs (prune, figue) et la liqueur typé cherry. Un palais extraordinaire, belle rondeur, très bon équilibre. Des flaveurs de cake aux fruits et des notes de caramel en final, petite amertume. Une merveille !

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Appearance: Hazy ruby with cm thick ivory head which was quick to disappear. Aroma: Liquorice, mint, dried fig, golden syrup. Taste: Medium sweetness, low/medium bitter and sourness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, medium body, low/average carbonation, dry lingering minty, liquorice, mead like, dried fig, fairly sweet finish. A bit spiritous and liqueur like. Comments: Delicious. No. 11525.

evergreen0199 (3460) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle from my extensive Fullers Vintage stash. A hazy orange/brown coloured pour with a thin white head on top that doesn’t hang around for long. Sweet, boozy, caramel, dark fruit aroma. Taste is similar, slightly boozy, dark fruit, caramel, quite sweet. Actually not too boozy and quite easy to drink. This has aged very well, bloody tasty stuff.
