3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, pours a clear caramel color with a thin off white head, sweet caramel malt taste and little bit of fruit with a very light bitter finish, not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bubbly clear bronze with nice lingering head buildup. Aromas of caramel, candied fruits (especially orange). Taste is big, fruity, and spicy. Balanced between hefty bitterness and sweetness throughout. Real peppery character comes through in the finish. Alcohol is hidden in the background turning up the volume. Lovely.

Another great beer from Fullers. Rich and full bodied with a balanced finish. Only problem is the strength - makes it hard to partake as one would like.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Pours clear deep amber colour, with small light brown head. Rich and intensive sweety aroma of orange, peach, ananas, caramel. Full bodied ale, lightly sweet at the start, but then turns into a bitter aftertaste. You can feel the taste of smoke and cask wood in the mouth. There is also a sign of alcohol in the background. Very nice balanced beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark amber/copper with a dense yellowed head that doesnít lace that much.
Big sweet aroma with syrupy bready and marmalade fruity apricot and orange notes. Some salty peppery leather and pointy hops.
Taste is also quite sweet, but just enough to stay elegant. Decently complex with lots of marmalade fruit, bread, caramel, spice, some leather and hops. Big body with soft low carbonation, but still very drinkable.
A very nice beer!

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown with a small head when poured. Sugary, toffee with a slightly hoppy scent. Quite dry and only lightly carbonated. Tastes very strong with overpowering sugars and syrup, almost like a barley wine.

Odd. Canít get my head round it. Smells like a no (Yep) tastes like a no (Yep again) too much alcohol, too sweet (too malty as well, like a malt beer), but then kinda works (not unpleasant but something not quite right). But a low score cause none of the parts are very good and the sum total isnít very good (Thatís what I was thinking, some people are more eloquent though). But then there is something that works (not me, I have done bugger all today) How does that work? (Hid in my office, but it was too cold so I sat in the staff room and pretended to be busy) Definitely in the barley wine realm of beer. Joke time.... when is a wine actually a beer? When itís a barley wine. (He is actually pretty funny but this is scraping the bottom) Youíre right, iíll ignore stand-up. (Call yourself a teacher? Capital I please. ) Definitely for the best. Though I am funny, honest. (I would agree) Only problem is that in my old job I was pretty sure I was the funniest person that worked there (what about the Lox?) no longer true.... though Iím not sure all staff would agree. Theyíd be wrong if they didnít. (Correct)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.33l bottle. Deep orange body, nice beige head. Caramelly aroma with lots of fruityness and a minimal roastyness. Lots of caramel, some chocolate, reisin and bread with lots of fruity hoppyness in the flavor. Big body. Itís like a double IPA. Awesome beer!
