By the time it was released in 2008, this Brewer’s Reserve had spent 500 days in 30-year-old single malt casks. Brewed to 7.7% ABV, it is a strong ale with hop bitterness and tangy marmalade notes.

500 mL bottle at the Ship in Wokingham. Chestnut brown with a prodigious head, hugely fizzy. Lovely, whisky, dates aroma. Smokey, whisky, fruity. Very nice and hides the alcohol a little.

Marduk (4239) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 30, 2012
0,5l bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). 2012-07, BB2011. Bit hazy dark mahogany color. Huge beige head. Lots of raisins and some sweetness in aroma. Very little whiskey too at the end in aroma. Cognac, raisins, some fruity sourness in flavor. Well aged.

Bottle. Pours a nice hazy amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of marmalade, oak, whiskey, spice notes, dark fruits, toffee and caramel. The flavor follows the nose with lots of marmalade and forest fruits, some dark fruit, toffee, caramel, oak, spice and whiskey. The body is medium with a almost creamy mouth feel. Overall probably my favorite so far in the Fullers Brewers Reserve range.

Lilja (2249) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2012
Gyllenbrun med lagom skum. Tydlig doft av humle, sötma av karamell och farinsocker, en del alkohol slår igenom. Rund, balanserad och fyllig eftersmak med smak av cognac, ekfat. Ingen beska.

Scopey (9796) - 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 (2204) - 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 (1781) - 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.
