Furseth (1928) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2006
Bottle: Deep red amber colour, with a nice creamy white head. Aroma of TOFFEE, lots of toffee, citrus and lots of maltyness and flowers. Flavor is Toffee, and a little bit of coffee and dry hopyness. Flowers and a dry bitter finish. Medium body, medium finish. It was a ok, but not more than that.....

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2006
From a 500ml bottle. Pours light brown with solid tan head. Extremely buttery, making the mouthfeel quite fatty. Thick medium roasted malt toffee taste and a bitter finish. Have I mentioned the butter? You could almost spread this beer on your toast. Not my favourite Fullers, but an interesting ale!

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2006
Amber, firm head. Aroma a bit buttery, quite sweet. Flavor goes with aroma, just adds a touch of bitterness. Nice full-bodied ale, not very wintery, though. As usual, Fuller’s doesn’t disappoint.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - NOV 30, 2006
Very very buttery, this is like drinking butter. Also high bitterness which isn’t too crisp. This is kinda altbier like and has some tones from czech and russian lagers. I’m not quite sure what this has to do with winter, but I gladly drink it. Lacks the flowery and fruity tones I often find in english ales.

Marsiblursi (2983) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2008 Pours brown/red. Butter fudge, toffee aroma. Round and silky notes. Apricots. English fruitcake. A bit peppery flavour with some hoppy notes. Round toffee taste. Grape, citrus peel afterbitterness. Burned crispbread. Medium body. Second try: (Old bottle, best before 02/11/07) Pours reddish brown. The aroma is malty with tones of caramel, toffee and bread. Some grassy and orangey hops are also present. Sweet fruity and subtle spicy. The flavour is malty and light hoppy with tones of caramel, grass and oranges. Light sweet and light to medium bitter. Hints of fruits in the flavour as well. Bit oxidised. The mouthfeel is soft and almost velvety but a bit syrupy. Light medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied. This beer is a bit “overripe” but still with a sting of that good old Fullers quality.

Bottle. Fantastic butterscotch, caramel aroma. Nuts, cream, butter. Great. Almost hazy red-brown colour, head disappearing. Nutty, walnut, butter, saltyness in the taste. Great bitter but not sharp finish.
