3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark amber color in the glass with small amount of head. Smells of caramel malt and toffee and minimal hop aroma. Taste is of toffee/caramel with herbal hop flavor that is more prominent in the mouth than on the nose. Medium bodied with a surprising amount of carbonation. Very good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper. A little bit of white head. Malt, alcohol, sugar nose. Caramel, malt, sugar, some alcohol, some herbal (bitter herbs) flavour. Bitter, some sweetness. Medium body, a bit below medium carbonation. Balanced, but not very interesting in my opinion.

A very cloudy ale, with a medium head, this medium-to-full bodied ale has a very complex malt taste, deep and rich, and it is fully hopped. Overall, this is an excellent ale.

Pours dark copper--nearly brown and somewhat cloudy from bottle conditioning. Thick, sweet malty body with strong, fruity English yeast character. Alcohol bite is present, but expected. A wonderful ale for a cold night.

Bottle, 50cl. Pours hazy, copper, red brown color with a fine, creamy beige head that leaves good lacing. Fruity, sweet malty aroma with notes of caramel, bread, butter, spices and liquice. Flavor starts out sweet and malty, with present of caramel, burnt sugar, toffee and dark fruits. Hobs, and light bitterness towards the end. Decent long finish with spices. Medium to full bodied, average carbonation, creamy, almost oily texture. Absolutely well worth its price tag.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy, deep copper colour, with a nice frothy cardboard colored head, that lasts long. On the nose there are fruity aromas, as well as nice caramel malt among other things. On the palate you can detect, the complex fruitiness, malts, caramel, toasted bread, and a nice slight sweetness. Another fullers masterpiece.

MÝrk gylden med medium skum. Aroma av malt, mild karamell og muligens noe som minner om tÝrket frukt. Anonym, men god. Smaken er malt, noe karamell og faktisk litt bitterhet i avslutningen. Medium konsistens. Kvalitetsbrygg som jeg gjerne kjÝper igjen!

A very fine Strong English Ale indeed, it smells of and tastes of a rich and intense fruit cake, yet with an earthiness that makes it a bit savoury and is absolutely delicious! Certainly one of the finer strong ales! I wish I had another!
