Very nice brew.
Pours a thick dark amber colour, dense head wich doesnt faint very quickly.
This Ale is one of a kind, there is alot going on there that reminds me of a strong belgian ale style, this is a cleaner and more refined brew, wich leaves it more predictable and the consistancy is there aswell, I have bought about 12-14 bottles a years time and its always the same.
Do not hesitate to invest in this brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich and chewy, this has the rich consistency I would expect from a beer of this strength. The aroma is fruity and the flavour predominantly malty at first. It is very sweet fruity, with dried fruit, rind, and perhaps a hint of apple. The finish ushers in warmth and bitterness with a suggestion of citrus.

Very clear red amber with little bubbles. A nice foamy yellowish head. Hoppy aroma with a little caramel. Very full mouthfeel. A little vinious. A burnt feeling with some toffee. A little plums as well. Warming and pleasant.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep amber/red color, with a nice medium head.
Smell is caramel malts, liquor, ripe fruits. Taste shows even better the caramel malts, maybe nuts, sweet but well balanced. Oily texture, low carbonation.
Some alcohol warmth in the end, but very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2015 Copper colour with a whitish head. Good aromas of malt and dried fruit. The taste is very rich and complex - toasted malts, dried fruit, figs and marmalade all combine to give a really satisfying flavour. Very good mouth feel. This is a really lovely, subtle well-made beer. Another good one from Fullerís, and great for Christmas drinking.
Just re-read my old review, and I donít want to change a word. This beer is still a classic. As Michael Jackson said íThe cognac of beersí.
