Good example for the style. This had some age on it that probably caused the flavors to blend. Sweet malty aroma. Caramel brown color with little sustainable head. Flavor profile was of a standard English ale, just amped up a bit. I had this a year ago and it had more character. Malts are heavy followed by a candy-like mild sweetness. Also kind of bready. Alcohol was also very present in the finish. A year ago this was probably one of the best Fullerís Iíd tasted.

Bottle purchased from the brewery website & consumed at Merton Beer Festival Meeting next door at Nick & Annaís (next door) Tuesday 3rd December 2005 Pours amber its a little hazy with an off- white head. Fruity and nutty on the nose, little bit of tea, sweetness clings, some sweet overipe tangerine, thick in the mouth, slight late fruity twang. I like this, touch chewy, good. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9

From my cellar, autumn 2013.
Glowing ruby. Malty sweet. Soft, no edges. Nuts, malt, the well known Fullerís charater. Over the top.

Feb 2012 Chris Oís Fullers/Gales Tasting. Sweet. Toffee. Too sweet. A bit dull, but still drinkable. Iím starting to struggle here as we get to the end of these fairly strong beers.

Bottle - Vertical 2005 to 2008 - Raisin, toffee and biscuit on the nose. Cloudy brown with a tiny head. Brown sugar, raisin and the usual port suspects and some light alcohol to the end. A really nice example in this vertical.

Pours hazy mahogany into an English pint. Off-white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Bread, roasted nuts and pit fruit aromas. Slick, thick and sweet with hot toffee, caramel and bananas flambe front to back and through the lasting mildly bitter earth finish. Yummy.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle, No. 55112, beer gift from Leif, thanks. Frothy, off-white head reduced to a patchy surface. First pour is near-clear, apricot coloured, the last pour is cloudy. Dotted spots to the glass. Herbal and leafy hops to the nose mingled with mid-sweet malts. Fine taste of ripe fruits alongside citrus freshness added by honey sweetness leading to a long-lived dry, bittersweet ending. Sherry notes to the aroma and taste profile, as well. Soft and fresh on the swallow. Another well balanced Fullerís brew (at home, TromsÝ 18.05.2013).
