3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Bottle - Copper/dark amber in colour. Dried fruit, leather, caramel, whisky and some musty notes in the aroma. Fruity, rich, malty and warming taste with notes of whisky, vinous fruits, oak and caramel. Rich and one to sip. I have to say that I preferred the first two editions of this series, but this one isn’t bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle [#04610]. Clear copper colour with average to huge, foamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral and herbal aroma, cautious hints of fruit, a soapy touch. Taste is minimally sweet malty, floral notes, hints of toffee and mint, in the finish hints of the whisky, a dry woody touch; effervescent carbonation. Too strong carbonation prevents a better degustation of probably present flavours.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle #08373. Deep copper color, off-white head. Raisins and floral notes in the aroma. Cognac-like finish (whisky barrels, I know!) that lingers with an oily mouthfeel. Strange "Fisherman's Friend" vibe throughout. Full body, medium-high carbonation. Not as good as the previous iterations.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A gusher, producing a clear, dark golden to amber body and a big, collapsing, off-white head. Some brett on the nose, with hints of fruit-caramel. Quite sourish flavor with fruit caramel and a brett touch. Full-bodied, dry and effervescent, finishing with some bitterness. A disappointing one, at least compared to what I expect from Fuller’s, but it seems there’s a little infection going on, would be interesting to taste a good bottle. 121116

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from a fellow Siebel student, thanks Tim! Bottle #2977. Pours a cloudy amber colored body with an inch thick, fizzy and frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has a lot of whiskey and wood up front with a nice caramel and toffee malt sweetness, a good amount of sharp fruits, light notes of vanilla, and a light spicing. Flavor is similar. Lots of wood with a bunch of whiskey, but sweet enough from the caramel and toffee to balance. A good amount of sharper fruits with a light vanilla, touches of spice, and a light funk note coming on. Finishes dry and woody with a good amount of fruits and a light sweetness. Lots of lively bubbles with an effervescent carbonation and a lengthy aftertaste following a medium body. Overall, a pretty solid beer. A bit too highly carbonated and not quite up to the other two I’ve tried in this series, but enjoyable nonetheless. Good one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
.5l bottle @ Alko arkadia
Pours hazy orange with medium head. Aroma is peat, alcohol, plums, vinegar and some dark fruits. Flavor is peat, some caramel, malts, bread and alcohol. A bit too much whisky like beer and alcohol bites too much.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle #03365: Hazy, amber coloured, some floaties visible, off-white foamy layer, extremely gushing; sweetish fruity-vinous and tart-woody nose with a tinge of vanilla; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied, not soft; dryish fruity-woody finish with some hoppy bitterness and a whisky-like (?) alcohol-burn. Unharmonic and disappointing…
