3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Dark copper coloured mediumsized brown thick creamy head. Strong malty nose with hints of caramel and cookies as well as a bit of roast. Strong roasted malt in flavour along with some hops in finish. Caramellish hints also there as well as weak plummyness. Quite pleasant, but the roastflavour is a bit too aggressive.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty almost fruit cake aroma. Someone said rustic and I agree. Initially toffee, almost butterscotch, that developes into chocolate, burned sugar, malts, nuts and then the hops kick in. Surprisingly bitter, this one. Taste lingers long in your mouth and some residual sweetness can be licked from ones lips.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: malt (roasted), yeastm sourish and tasty, burnt sugar, chocolate toffee, mineral and fruity.
Warm, roasted brown and clear w/ a white-beige head.
Sweet bitter, appearant hops, metallic.
Mouthfeel: thin and still rich, pretty low co2, good, but not fantastic. Much malt, bitter aftertaste. Nutty (not because they say hehe).

Bottled. Dirty brown colour with rustic malt aroma. Drinks its strength. Moderate complexity but very well balanced for the style. Must be drunk on a dead cold day to derive maximum value.

50cl bottle from Pitfield Beer shop. gorgeous russet colour. Lasting tight beige head. Lovely aroma of rich malts with berry fruit, toffee adn some choc and also vigorous hop. Full in mouth and then sensuous warming malt, more choc and toffee and then assertive hops to balance. Another wonderful strong Fullers beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bown, small head, good lacing. Not much aroma, the flavour is a bit too bitter for me and the aftertaste is not too fresh. Disappointing.
