500 mL bottle at the Ship in Wokingham. Chestnut brown with a prodigious head, hugely fizzy. Lovely, whisky, dates aroma. Smokey, whisky, fruity. Very nice and hides the alcohol a little. Marduk (7694) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 30, 2012

Bottle. Pours a nice hazy amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of marmalade, oak, whiskey, spice notes, dark fruits, toffee and caramel. The flavor follows the nose with lots of marmalade and forest fruits, some dark fruit, toffee, caramel, oak, spice and whiskey. The body is medium with a almost creamy mouth feel. Overall probably my favorite so far in the Fullers Brewers Reserve range.

Pours hazy deep golden/orange with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits and wood. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Bottle at Chriso’s Fullers-Gales Tasting. It pours hazy amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is sulphur, syrupy sweetness, gingerbread, touch of fruit and some alcohol. The taste is over-baked cake, spice, wood, caramel, tangy citrus, some whisky and metal. Full body and moderate carbonation. Balance seems off to me. Not great.
