3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500). Poured hazy burnt ruby with a huge lightly tanned, creamy head which lasted superbly. Aroma was of earthy hops with orange peel, toffee malts, red berries, 5 spice, caramel and hints of fennel. Flavor was a good rustic/earthy hop bitterness with toffee malts, juicy gooseberries, figs, black pepper and a very dry woody finish. Noticeable alcohol content. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a superb length finish. Very well crafted English Strong Ale from Fullers – perfect full-bodied winter warmer.

Erittäin runsaasti vaahtoava, tummanruskean/kuparisen värinen olut. Hajussa siirappia. Jälkimaussa hieman kitkeryyttä/kuivan katkeraa. Karamellimainen ja kohtalaisen kevyt. Verrattavissa saman panimon ESB:hen.

500ml bottle. Pours a dark chestnut colour with a persistent creamy head. Aroma is very powerful, with lots of spice, dried fruit and an alcoholic kick. Flavour is more subdued, with a smooth fruity body with a little spice drying out the finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A bottle from Jason’s near NCCU in Muzha, drunk at home. Aroma: delicious, caramel. Appearance: beautiful dark mahogany, minimal head. Palate: full-bodied and thick, soft carbonation with a long finish. Taste: heavy, quite sweet, this is Christmas cake territory, very complex. As the Beer Hunter himself said ’perilously easy to drink’.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very full beer and extremely drinkable given the alcohol content. There is certainly a sense of drinking a christmas pudding here but it is all beautifully balanced. Fuller’s make some great beers!

Excellent English beer. Puts other "real ales" to shame. Big chunky caramel and toffee malts, sweet and subtlety bitter. Some spice, dried fruit, banana. Superb. Best traditional brewery in the UK.
