Bottle. Clear dark amber. Toast and cookie dough aroma, sweet maltiness with soft bitter undertones in the mouth. Medium-bodied and chocolate finish. Nice.

Maakun (557) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
Beautiful deep copper with massive off-white head. Apple, light roasted malts, herbal hops and some spices. Light bodied, full carbonation. Taste is good balance between sweet and nice bitterness in the finish. Good stuff.

Backlog. Tried a number of times on bottle. One of my favourite winter-seasonals. Fullers always delivers good beers, this isn’t an exception.

stefannilssons (1458) - SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2014
Den här ölen hade verkligen en ’julkänsla’ i sig, smaken bar toner av krydda, torkad frukt, äpple och trä. Kroppen var stabil och balansen närvarande precis så som man vill ha ’en.

VictorStr (1259) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2014
Brukar inte English Strong Ales vara från 7% och uppåt?! Men vad vet jag, så kraftigare den i alla fall inte. Visst en tydlig sötma och rostade toner i aromen. Lite lätt i

Marstonlad (408) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2014
A red coppery color with a big frothy head. Aroma features bready and light caramelly notes, definitely malts-driven. Taste is at first light sweet with caramel, nuts and ripe fruitiness featuring; later it is dry and in the finish also bitter. Overall this is very balanced, initially hoppy bite seemed sharp but maltiness increased when warmer. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated palate. Decent, well balanced light English strong ale.

PapaVillum (424) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2014
500 ml, flaske, 5,3 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Rotunden i Hellerup, 15. januar 2014. Klar lys mahogni-farvet engelsk winter ale med offwhite-farvet skumtop på 1 cm tykkelse. Sødlig duft af karamelmalt. Smagen er bittersød med overvægt på det bitre. Billedet indledes med en anelse syrlighed, går over i en "á la Bock"-smag og -balance mellem sødme og bitterhed og slutter af med en bitterhed, der går hen og slutter med en interessant bedsk smag, som sidder i mundvigen længe. Kulsyreindholdet er på middel niveau. Jeg er ikke overdreven smager af engelsk øl, men denne her er trods alt én af de bedste, jeg til dato har smagt, særligt når man tager alkoholprocenten i mente. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
