Like a more grimey version of a Fullers Vintage ale.Or a Vintage bottle that’s way raw. I read some of the negative press about this, that its beer for juice heads.Granted ,it aint slick but its flavoursome and thats why I pay my entereance money $.Big and malty .Sweet and thick.Apple ester and dusty hop spices.Caramel and I got cherry in the finish.

500ml Bottle - Copper/red in colour. Hoppy and slightly dusty aroma, with dried fruits, sweet malt and grapefruit noticeable. Hoppy and malty taste, with a rich fruity element featuring raisins, grapefruit, spicy malt and caramel. Warming and nicely balanced. The strength is noticeable, but this is still very easy to drink. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2009
50 cl bottle at Skallerup Klit. Clear reddish brown color, fine off-white head. Aroma is hops, sweet malt and dried fruit. Flavor is sweet with fine bitterness, alcohol is in front, but it is not very disturbing. aphalo (94) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2009
Aroma gives a rich promise of hops, colour is clear (brown-reddish). Flavor is tight/narrow, with lots of hops, some nuts and citrus. Aftertaste is bitter and has a bit too much alcohol in it.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Bottle. Golden red colour with an off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of nuts, sour cherries, alcohol, and dried fruits. The taste is also very malty with notes of marzipan, nuts, caramel, spices, light grape, and dried fruit. Balanced by a bit of hoppiness. Warming and quite complex. bermod (119) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2009
Very malty, fruity, slightly nutty and citrusy aroma with hint of strawberries. Sweet fruity flavor is slightly nutty and it finishes citrusy-dry and moderately bitter. Medium body and warming palate. Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2009
0.5 l bottle. Amber color with small head. The aroma and flavor is sweet, very fruity, slightly vinous and slightly nutty with orange marmelade, apricot and warming alcohol. Soft oily palate. I like most of the Fullers beers but this one lacks in character and is fairly bland for a barley wine. JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2009
A 0.5L bottle from Alko shop. Pale head. Reddish coppery colour. Mild malty nose. Strong malty and roasty slightly sour taste. At the end hoppy bitterness.
