UPDATED: APR 19, 2018 Buena cerveza como todo lo de fullers. Aroma, malta, frutos secos y oscuros, algo de lupulo. Aspecto, color cobre rojizo, carbonatacion baja, espuma casi inexistente. Sabor, muy complejo. Caramelo, tostado, frutos oscuros, frutos secos, amargor moderado, retrogusto un poco especiado.

Pudding (278) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2018
500ml, bottle-conditioned from Sainsburys. Pours clear copper with thick, lasting head. Aroma is spicy, berries. Taste same with marzipan. Mouthfeel: syrupy. Overall: top class beer from Fullers. Stands head and shoulders above the pasteurised/filtered beers on supermarket shelves.

steveddy (41) - Chichester, West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2018
Bottle from Tesco. Pours dark amber with white head. Not much initial aroma. Big malty flavours, a bit fruity wirh balanced bitterness.Very full mouthfeel. Quite easy drinking for a strong ale, deceptive. A good one.

Mainly available bottled - bottle conditioned for 100 days. First brewed in 1995 for the 150th anniversary of the brewery, according to recipe inspired by the original fullers books. Officially real ale according to camra. Pale Malt (mix of Pipkin, Maris Otter and Halcyon), crystal and amber malt from Simpsons. Goldings hops. Dark amber, with a small bubbly head. Excellent bitterness lasting bitterness, but with minimal carbonation. Quite straightforward flavour - not a lot of bread, but some spice - heavy, raisin, port, sticky dark fruits and christmas cake, some caramel. Very English beer and nice, if perhaps a touch heavy handed.

malibrat (267) - Pula, CROATIA - JAN 28, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Trenutno najbolji Engleski Strong Ale na Rate Beeru. I jedino što mogu reći da je to zasada Englesko pivo sa najjačim tijelom i najpunijeg okusa. Puno se jače osjeti slad nego kod drugih Engleskih piva što me najviše iznenadilo tako da je pivo slatkastije. Vrlo dobro pivo i legnut će svima koji vole Hrvatske lagere.

Cokemonkey11 (1197) - - JAN 7, 2018
Bottle. Medium rosewood amber with no head. Scent is medium english bitter with some wood resin. Taste is soft, mature, english ale with loads of resin, and a fairly mild malt profile. Some bitterness. Some cereal properties. A bit harsh. Finish is lax. Very good. Overrated.
