Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 08-21-2004

First released in 1997, Fuller's Vintage Ale is brewed in limited batches with each bottle being numbered. It can be enjoyed immediately, or Fuller's recommends laying the beer down to enjoy when it peaks in 3 to 4 years and consume at cellar temperature. And though it's released each year as a separate vintage, BA has been informed that the recipe is only slightly tweaked from year to year, while the ABV remains at 8.5%.

2014 edition.

Dark ruby red appearance. Vigorous carbonation reminiscent of a Belgian strong ale is visible.

Aroma is of toffee, sweet malt and brandy like booze.

Taste is complex and well balanced. Sweet malts, toffee, tartness, syrup, raisins and mild earthy hops with a slight bitterness in the finish followed by a sweet mouth coating booziness.

Overall, a very tasty, complex English ale. Similar to Fullers Golden Pride but perhaps just a notch more complex and better.

Very nice indeed
