I missed this one at EBFin Copenhagen, so I was glad when it turned up at a drinking session in Oslo, thanks to Knut Albert. Clear, naked surface. Deep golden brown body. Satisfying aroma of dried fruits. Sweet vinous taste, supported by an oak and whisky-like touch and ending with bitter marmalade. Robust palate and enjoying [15.12.2008]. larsniclas (7075) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2008

... as Fullers Brewer’s Reserve...
Pours clear amber with a great, small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, red berries, wood, light peity smokiness and some apple notes. Fine mouthfeel with just a tad too high carbonation. Flavour is sweet at first, then smoke and wood mix well with English toffee. Super long aftertaste with dry woody notes. The red berries still show up. Lovely - and with a year on it, the carbonation may have settled.
[500 ml bottle] Nice golden color. The flavor is mild and well balanced with malt, and a smooth and frouth sweet aftertaste, but with a hint of bitterness. BelgiskOlklub (1082) - Viby J, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2008
