light hazy ruby colour with a nice creamy head, beautiful lacing, strong hoppy aroma showing red fruits, honey, flowers and cream, full-bodied and oily, very malty and smooth, robust bitterness before a long, dry and warming hoppy finish - a wonderful brew with lot of character - big thank you to fiulijn for this one

A clear red/amber with small head. Aroma is a lovely mix of bread and a floral tang - a great sniff! With the taste, the bitterness comes through more than the sweet malt, but work together well and are both present in the finish. The body is quite light, but not watery and carbonation is present. Overall I would say this is a well balanced and wonderfully tasty brew.

Bottle at the Dickens. Massive beer. Aromas of dough, caramel, hints of alcohol and flowers. Taste is sweet, with light sour and bitter notes, and very long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Yum! Fruity raisin aroma, liquid gold a triumph from Fullers, tastes of steeped fruits, prunes, hoppy and rich , full bodied, great for an autumn day or by a roaring log fire at Christmas time, not easy to find so if you see it buy it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 18 Dec 09, drank on a cold semi-sunny Sunday afternoon in Nov 09. Poured into a bateman’s branded UK pint sleeve.
Looked good, a creamy coloured foaming head sat on top of a dark mahogany, clear body.
Toasted malts and rich molasses hit my nose, toffee and treacle but without a sweetness, more a prosperous, well-healed, confident air about it. In short, it smells like a rich persons tipple.
That richness carries on into the flavours, very oak wood rather than plywood, delicious, sumptuous and very moorish. I almost forgot it is 8.5%ABV, no wonder it tasted so full, warming and luxurious.
There are few beers in the world better than a well made English Strong Ale and this is up there with the best, I take my hat off to Fuller’s, this is one well crafted beer and well worth the extra couple of pence I paid for it.

Appearance....... amber/copper beer with head colour white of almost 2 fingers
Aroma...............malt, alcohol, caramel, hops. Fresh and strong smell with a touch of malty aroma
Taste........ fenolic with a sweet malty touch, bitterness appears soon lasting all the time, with a dry finish
Mouthfeel........... medium/full body and medium/soft carbonation
Overall............ a very nice strong ale, bitterness is present but in a perfect combination with malt and alcohol. One of my favourites, definitely a great English ale in his section (strongs ales) .
