COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Vintage Ale with an aroma which incorporates spicy hop notes with rich fruit character and leads on to a very full malty, fruity, sweet palate which has a surprisingly clean finish coupled with a matching bitterness.
I have handcrafted this beer from the finest Fuggles, Target and Super Styrian hops, Maris Otter malted barley and of course, our unique yeast to create a truly extraordinary unique brew. - John Keeling, Brewmaster

fiulijn (19614) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2007
Cask at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Beautiful amber color; still. The aroma is simple. The mouthfeel is strong, with some good sweet malt, a bit oily, but nothing special. A bit warming. Powerful but not impressive.
A bottle is awaiting in the cellar, for better days...

Bottle at Caspar’s Running Toilet Tasting. Pours amber-red with w foamy, white head. Rich, dark and ripe fruits on the nose, some subtle caramel. Medium sweet flavor, light alcohol notes, cake, fruits, toffee. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warm finish, lightly dulled alcohol edge, modest toffee. Very nice.

(Stockholm Beer Festival 2007) Cask. Golden/amber color, small head. Yeasty, malty fruity aroma with raisins and some figs. Vinous malty flavor, raisins, sweet fruitsd and some bitter notes. Good beer and this will of course improve with time.

Koelschtrinker (17999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 12, 2013
Würziger Beginn, leicht honigartig. Würzig, rund, geringe Süße. Schmeckbarer aber eher unwichtiger Hopfen. Rundes, zum Ende etwas trockenes Bier. 11/12/12/12/12/12

Bottle split with JF at a Sue’s away mini tasting in the ’Sham, 11/03/14, massive thanks to Fin for digging this one out for me #85518. Lightly hazed amber with a good sized off white covering that eventually thins to a swirl. Nose is figgy jam, dark fruit mash up, demerera sugars, tobacco, light sherry notes. Taste comprises prunes, dates, fruit cake, leather armchair, candied sugars, caramel fudge, hint sherrification. Medium + bodiment, fine carbonation, sweetish closure. Solid stuff and still holding up well at 7 years although not the best vintage I’ve sampled.

harrisoni (17474) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2007
Cask gravity at Bowl Inn, Charing. Cask had BBE 12/03/2008. Strong alcohol and a bit syrupy. Decent hop on finish but more muted than other vintages I’ve had. Good raisin fruit. Malty/raisin up front, then dry hop on finish. More earthy and less grapefruity than I expected. Still got plenty of hop though. Needs time to mature.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2012 Bottle, 50cl. Bottle # 18172. A dark golden beer topped by a small, beige head. Alcohol, dried fruits, dark sugar and some honey hints on the nose. The flavor is lightly alcoholic and sugary, with a pleasant bitterness. Warming, full-bodied and nicely carbonated. A bit rough and sugary this one, but quite nice anyway. Rating: 6-3-7-4-13-3.3. 120106

Bottle. A slightly hazy, golden beer topped by a small off-white head. The aroma is a pleasant mix of fruity, peachy hops, port like alcohol notes and maltyness. There’s some caramel in the flavor, and a nice bitterness, else it’s much like the aroma. Full-bodied and warming, with a dry, bitter finish where there’s some roasted like notes. A lovely one. 100115

Dark copper brown color, no head. Cellary oaky aroma - not very strong. Alcoholic, fruity, bitterish. Raw, earthy brew, not as sweet as 2006 edition.
