Bottle at a Tasting. A hazy amber beer with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramelish malt, red fruits, mild oxidized fruits. Taste of strong dark red fruits, caramel, red malt, dry bitter finish. Zlotta (4380) - Hagen, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2017
Sampled from 0.5 l bottle. Slightly hazy, dark amber with an off-white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity and a bit oxidized aroma of caramel, honey, sultanas and some nuts. Quite sweet, malty, a bit fruity and minimally oxidized taste of caramel, honey and some nuts, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly boozy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice! Erzengel (10010) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2017
Bottle from my cellar, No. 028566. Smooth mild beginning. Fruity, round and smooth. Caramel, soft, round and smooth. Hints of alcohol only in the back, round and even refreshing, mild caramelly, soft malty in the aftertaste. Mortlach (2537) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 10, 2017
500ml bottle. Ambrata spenta, leggermente torbida, schiuma abbondante. Al naso sentori di mela matura, datteri, caramello, erba tagliata. In bocca è dolce con finale amaro abbastanza lungo. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Buona, ma mi aspettavo qualcosa di più.

Aus der Flasche (bbe 2014) im 2016-11 getrunken. Die frischen Vintages von Fuller haben für mich oft eine ordenliche aber immer noch gut dosierten Hopfenbitterkeit. Doch dieses hat dies nicht mehr. Wenn es die Überlagerung um 2 Jahre war - toll. BeerBaboon (2167) - FINLAND - FEB 25, 2017
This one has aged quite a while. Flavour is fruits, cake, caramel and just a little bit boozy. Flavour is fruity, light to medium bitter and medium sweet. Smooth palate. Nuffield (4254) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Part of a vertical tasting of vintage years 2008 through 2015, drank in January 2017. 2008 (bottle #127432) was rounded out to a solid caramel, with that lovely oxidation that makes vintage beers what they are. 2009 (#105287) suggested some tobacco and a luscious nose. 2010 (#094046) help up better than the 2011 (#108000), with better caramel flavors and some fizz; the later year was just flat and old tasting. 2012 (#125741) was clearly brighter in the nose, though losing some of its body, while the 2013 (#109909) was showing some signs of oxidation. 2014 (#141264) was equally bright with 2015 (#134049), and both were worthy bottles that I could have enjoyed had I just been sitting with the whole bottles. Thanks for my friends for joining me as I shared these bottles. AirForceHops (8274) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Yep, bottle. Smells fine; toasted caramel malt, dark fruit, raisins, prunes, yeast. Chalumeaux (1945) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2017
The flavor didn’t hold up as well as I thought. Dark fruit still a parent, with some light trace of cardboard and wet paper. Softer carbonation, medium-fuller body. Considering the age of this brew. it’s not awful.
Poured from bottle thanks Airforcehops caramel color with an off white head. Aromas of toffee caramel orange and oxidation. Shame dark fruit yeast.
