a very strong beer that you wouldnít be able to drink to many of in a night loads of flavours going on in the beer lots of sweetness but with a good bitter finish Moebbels (792) - FINLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Clear dark amber body with a quickly disappearing head. Nose has some raisin, floral malt and caramel notes. Taste is bittesweet with a raisiny and fruity flavor and a softly bitter finish. Carbonation is soft but rich with lots of bubbles. Palate is rich and creamy. The alcohol is extremely well hidden, this does not even warm you up like other BW:s. Well made but a little one-dimensional. SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle 50 CL. Pours copper with white small lacing head, berries. Notes of caramel, herbs, alcohol warmth. Sweet rounded caramel taste. Interesting ale. Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2011
Bottle from Csak a jů sŲr. Poured ruby-red, with a tan, creamy lacing foam. Honey, caramel, plum, raisins, yeast, and perhaps some herbs in the nose. There is a slight citrusy hint lurking somewhere in there, but the (delicious) hops kind of overpower it. Medium dense, oily, medium carbonated. Alcohol well hidden, with a sweet, roasty aftertaste that lasts. Pretty good! wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
Love this stuff. Pours a clear orange with a fizzy head. The aroma is sweet, toffee, candied orange, booze, biscuit. The flavour is also sweet, with toffee and candied orange flavours up front, booze, pepper and a light touch of hops in the finish. Syrupy mouth feel. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Golden clear with big head. Caramel, muscy aroma. Malt, alcohol, candy. Malty hoppines in the aftertaste. Ok beer SkillsFactory (739) - ITALY - MAY 24, 2015
Rossa con riflessi arancioni, limpida, schiuma ocra chiara non molto persistente.
Aroma di uva passa e banana matura, quasi medicinale, qualche nota liquorosa, leggero caramello.
Al palato stesse note, con una coda amara sempre sovrastata dal maltato.
Corpo pieno, non molto carbonata. ERB92 (734) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2014
Caramel, bread, dried fruits, brown sugar, grains and grass in the aroma. Amber with a white head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full body with a soft carbonation. Overall a rich flavoured and well balanced brew with some warming alcohol in the finish. sound67 (731) - Offenbach, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2009
50cl bottle, as shown.
Pours a beautiful mahogany with a medium-sized, creamy off-white head with decent retention and plenty of lacing.
Aroma is of dried fruit: raisins, some orange peel, plus caramel.
Medium carbonation and a thick, creamy and oily mouth feel that, at 8.5 % abv, should surprise no one. A full-bodied strong ale, as Iíve come to expect from Fullerís.
Taste is of sweet roasted malt, toffee, stewed dark berries, with a lot of herbal spices adding to the complexity of this brew - again with a freshening note of orange peel. Malty, full, medium dry finish and gripping, slightly boozy after taste. Very similar to the much more expensive "Vintage Ale", which seems logical if that beer is indeed based on Golden Pride (same abv, to begin with). Unlike the "Vintage" variety, itís pasteurized.
As with all the strong ales and premium esbs from Fullerís, this one is beautifully balanced, with the strong alcohol well integrated into the intricate fabric of aromas. Sweetness and malty bitterness complement each other brilliantly, If youíre searching for the perfect "fireside brew", look no further. agent_persik (731) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 14, 2015
Clean dark amber color, small beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, dried fruits, nuts, honey, spicy hops. Sweet and mildly bitter taste with hoppy finish and sweet malty aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation. Quite good English strong ale.
