4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma is lots of deep rich hops and lots of malt make this a very well balanced beer. Very fruity, especially orange. Heavenly. Pours a rich clear deep amber with a thick off-white head that dissipates. Medium bitterness, a full bodied brew. Undertones of sweetness balance this out. Rather glorious on the palate. Sweet and rich! Fuller’s, you’ve done it again!

500ml bottle. Dark copper colour with an even layer of dense tan foam. Strong port like aromas burst from the bottle as it is poured. Currants, spiced fruit and plum pudding come to mind. Strong warming flavours that hit all parts of the mouth. Rich and full bodied. Perfect for sipping by an open fire.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Heavy brown 500ml bottle into pint glass. Pour is clear copper coloured with a thick collar of cream/yellow-tinged foam that laces nicely. Strong enticing richly treacly and roasted malt aromas with a hint of alcohol. Flavour is rich medium sweet malts with a bittersweet hop finish. Lovely velvety smooth mouthfeel with a medium to full body and low carbonation. ABV very well hidden (danger!). Another winner from this excellent brewery.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper amber. Off white head that fades to fine lace fast. Fruity hop caramel aroma. Taste is bit sweet caramel brown sugar. Medium carbonation and body. Smooth, pretty well rounded. Finish is clean and sweet, earthy grainy. Lacks bitterness. Okay brew. Nothing special. I doubt if I would drink it again.
