3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. High creamy long lasting off-white head. Beautiful deep dark amber body. Sweet and mild apple pear wood caramel aroma with a hint of alcohol as well. Surprisingly bitter flavor with heavy notes of armanac and alcohol combined with caramel and vanilla. Extremely high amount of carbonation and a long bitter finish. A bit too agressive on the alcohol level. Some storage would undoubtedly do this beer good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a nice copper color with a beige head. Aroma is quite vinous because of the Armagnac, with lots of red grape, oak and vanilla notes, toffee, fudge, dark fruits, caramel, sweet malt, marmalade and fruit cake notes. The flavor follows the nose with a really nice Armagnac flavor, again lots of vinous red grape notes, dry oaky noes, vanilla, sweet malt, marmalade, fruit cake, toffee and caramel, fudge, dark fruits and almost balsamic vinegar. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel, and a little too much carbonation for its own good. Overall a pretty interesting brew in the Fullers Brewers Reserve Series.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark golden with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma with some dried fruit notes, vineous alcohol, and fine malt. Sweetish malty flavour with vineous alcohol and oak notes. Feels a bit too young and raw, but with great potential.
