2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from the bottle, a clear brown with a good frothy off-white head. An earthy malty aroma with hints of sweet caramal and slightly smokey. The flavour has sweet caramal again with hints of stewed plums. A smooth mouth feel initially, giving way to a strong bitter and dry finish. OK, but I prefer the Youngs Winter Warmer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark brown. Full mature aroma. Small head. Had this beer with a meal of meatballs made from reindeer mince and spiced with juniper berries, and that was a perfect match. The juniper flavor is evident in the beer also, together with a marked bitterness and a littlel bit of sugar, just enough to enhance everything else. Fullerís never seem to disappoint me!
