Dark amber color with a off white lasting head with moderate lacing. Nice balance of malt and hopps. Complex. A good example of an english strong ale. This exceeded my expectations and will be on my repurchase list.

This beer is good all around. It has a really long lasting aftertaste that is enjoyable to the end.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 A delightful brew. Nearly perfect bitter hop/roasted malt balance. Head is initially frothy. Color is a deep amber hue. Finish is fruity. Definitely the best English Strong that I have ever had out of a bottle.

Caton (160) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2002
Wonderfully balanced with sweet maltiness and fruitcake aromas. It has a rich and full palate with a almost bitter sweet finish. This is not the type of beer that you can have anytime but it goes well at the end of a meal with dried fruits and cheese.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 10, 2002
A very fine ale indeed. Rich and roasty with the sweetness and malty texture of a wee heavy without the inherent burnt flavor. Very smooth and one of the most well balanced beers I have tried.

Great pour, with decent head atop a lovely amber liquid. Delicious malty aroma. The caramel malts delight the taste buds, and hints of coffee and mild alcohol undertones complete the beer. Very rich, stays comfortably on the tongue.

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2002
Fantastic aroma, reminiscent of pound cake, sweet potatoes, brown sugar, and cranberry sauce. Creamy texture, complex, bittersweet malts, and oh so smooth. A bit cloying when chilled, but at cellar temperature, the drying hop finish comes through nicely. A stellar brew, just like London Porter (and I have a Vintage Ale 1999 stashed away!)

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2002
Pours a very dark amber color, with a slight malt flavor with elements of coffee. Definate alcohol and coffee in the taste as well as malt and hops. Slightly bitter, but that is good for this style. I found this to be a very drinkable beer. I hope to find other of Fullerís products that hold up as well or better.

Amazingly good ale, with very strong woodsy malt flavor. Nice coffee and carmel flavors and an excellent dark amber color
