3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This ale poured a cloudy amber colour with a beautiful, off white coloured, creamy head. Minimal lacing. Scents include ripe fruit, caramel, toast and a light metallic odour. First sip was smooth and somewhat creamy with flavours of toast, hay, ripe fruit and a slight whiskeywood flavour at the end. Finish is very malty with light hop flavours and a mildly bitter palate.

16.9oz bottle at Fleet Street Pub - fire alarm is over. Nose is bread, caramel and some hops I recognize but canít identify (something youíd find in an oktoberfest). Easy to drink for 8.5%. Not worth the price but still tasty.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Burnished amber colour, a skim of cream coloured head and a persistent set of trails of carbonation. The aromas are of lush stonefruit, rolled sweet pastry and autumnal orchard fruit, even some pecan nuttiness. Itís a rich front and this comes through into a silky, oily, slick mouthfeel that is just so elegant, it deserves to be clad in ermine. There is a generous dollop of sweetness, but it isnít cloying at all. Each sip brings a sigh of happiness, but I might just be a sucker for this style.

Ganske lækker kvalitets specialudgave øl fra Fullers. Lidt sød nok pga den høje alkoholprocent. Men en rigtig dejlig oplevelse - dog alt alt for dyr...

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 Bottiglia 25968 aperta il 29 Marzo 2015.
Color ambrato con discreta persistenza della schiuma.
Corpo medio-pieno, poco carbonata.
Al naso e al palato sentori di caramello e vino liquoroso, uva passa e ciliegia, rabarbaro, sul finale si percepisce il luppolo e l'alcol che scalda la bevuta.
Decisamente buona, da provare.

Bottle number 127978. Pours a hazy caramel color. Thick almond colored head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts, and dark fruits. Burnt sugars, caramel, and dark fruits hit the palate. Very sweet yet still balanced with a light bitter backbone. Very enjoyable.

I think Tommy sent this to me in 2012. Clear amber beer, with a fruity and yeasty aroma. Caramel and a very light coffee flavour, vanilla marshmallow, really nice

Quite sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a calm carbonation.
