COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
This strong full-bodied malty ale has been aged in 30-year-old Single Malt casks for a period of 500 days, infusing the ale with flavours and characteristics of the whisky that has absorbed into the wood. Flavours include a balance of hoppy bitterness and tangy marmalade, rounded off with subtle smoky vanilla notes and a hint of whisky.

Scopey (5557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Fullers-Gales Tasting. It pours hazy amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is sulphur, syrupy sweetness, gingerbread, touch of fruit and some alcohol. The taste is over-baked cake, spice, wood, caramel, tangy citrus, some whisky and metal. Full body and moderate carbonation. Balance seems off to me. Not great.

EdKing (1760) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Touch hazy brown tawny colour. Nose is marmalade, sherry, citrous notes, sweet malty sugary. Taste is marmalade, touch of treacle, tangy fruit, but there’s a dry woodiness in this that isn’t all that great. Also dry on the finish. Not sure this is ageing very well.

TEJA (1215) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2012
I love smoke beers. This one has a thick beige head and a red-orange color. Not so much smoke aroma as the german smoke beers but sweet citrus aroma. The taste also has some caramell and some fruit that is balanced by a litle tart bríttish hop bitterness. Much sweetness and big body.
