UPDATED: FEB 5, 2016 Strong ale inglese della Fuller?s. Ambrata riflessi rossi, con schiuma compatta, al naso prettamente caramellata. Consistenza leggermente oleosa, pur caratterizzata dal dolce ha una certa amarezza in retrogusto. Piuttosto forte e alcolica con 8.5%. Non mi ha molto convinto nel complesso, è buona ma il voto medio è un po’ troppo alto

Golden amber in colour, with a good head. Has a rather earthy aroma with rich malt. A med-full palate with malt sweetness balanced by firm bitterness. A rich mouthfeel that lingers.

500mL bottle from Regionals. Pours a red/orange hue with a tan head which dissipates quickly.
A very sweet nose on this one. Lots of brown sugar like a barley wine but has some raisin fruitiness.
Flavour is quite complex. Initially sweet, along with some raisin. Sweetness is balanced mid way with a good bitterness. A very mouth filling beer, and there is a bit of spiciness right near the finish which is long and bitter.
This is like a very drinkable barley wine. It would be interesting to try this freshly brewed, so the hops can flourish more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a deep amber color with a mediumsized white head, minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of toffee, honey, fruit candy, dried fruits and some plums. Flavour is fruity and malty sweet with clear toffee and honey notes together with some spicy hops. Medium bitterness in the finish. Mediumbodied on the palate, slightly oily and quite smooth, the carbonation is soft. A nice sipper, maybe not that complex but overall quite tasty and definitely priceworthy.

Tasted at Den Tatoverede Enke in DK. Was paired excellently with their Sheppard’s pie. Not my favourite Fuller’s beer, but tasty. Pours an amber colour with white head. Taste is quite sweet, with caramel malty body, notes of apricot, cloves and grassy bitter finish.
