larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2009
Big yellowish brown lasting head. Deep brown body. Fruity caramelly wooden aroma with spicy dusty toffee notes. Dry-sweet malty wooden papery taste with wild berry and cocos notes. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Mid-bodided. Dry fruity wooden cocos aftertaste with chocolatey notes. Clashes a bit. Still nice, though. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Orange amber pour with a decent head for a minute. The aroma is malty with hints of caramel, toffee, and fruit such as orange and apples perhaps. Sweet and malty. Caramel, toffee, ripe fruit. English hop bitterness in finish.

KimJohansen (10347) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
Clear deep amber with a large beige head. Aroma had toasted malt, caramel and floral hops. Flavour was wuite hoppy and had notes of caramel, toasted malt and ripe fruits. Finished bitter. Not bad for a bottled english beer.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - DEC 24, 2008
Pours a copper color with a nice white head which dies and leaves some lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, nuts, english hops. Flavour is lightly roasted with caramel, nuts and that typical english hop taste. I also think there is a slight milk chocolate note. Ends with a good bitterness. Pretty smooth, mediumbodied, quite low carbonation. A good winter beer from Fullers. Very drinkable!

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2008
500 ml bottle. A low big-bubbled lightly tanned head upon a shiny dark copper brown colored body. Spiced caramel aroma. A little roastiness and a nice whiff of dark fruits and dusty hops. Taste has a strong malt base, light nutty, caramellish with an appropriate bitterness. Healthy body. Light to medium body. Malty-sweet, light bitter ending. Well rounded and moreish.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2008
Dark brown, firm pale head. Simple malty nose with strong nuttiness and little herbal hops. Flavor has the same nuttiness, roasted malts and english hops. Medium bodied, average smooth palate. Not that warming strong ale, misses totally that fruitiness. A good session brew though.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2008
An amber/copper colored beer, with beautiful thick beige foamed head. The aroma of caramel spices and fruits. The taste of sweet fruits, caramel, toffee and hops. The first flavor is smooth, but is gets bitter and dry, very nice. The bitters lingers on and stays. Very nice.
