UPDATED: AUG 10, 2013 500 ml bottle poured into a Pint glass
Appearance....... amber/copper beer with head colour white of almost 2 fingers
Aroma...............malt, alcohol, caramel, hops. Fresh and strong smell with a touch of malty aroma
Taste........ fenolic with a sweet malty touch, bitterness appears soon lasting all the time, with a dry finish
Mouthfeel........... medium/full body and medium/soft carbonation
Overall............ a very nice strong ale, bitterness is present but in a perfect combination with malt and alcohol. One of my favourites, definitely a great English ale in his section (strongs ales) .

This is basically a beefed-up 1845 ale leaparsons (10504) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2002
Golden, like it says on the label. This has a vinuous and spicy aroma. Flavours are of brown sugar, burnt toffee and a surpising hops bites. Powerful and delicous. Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2009 Tonnes of aroma. A dark redish brown nectar of pure gold and flavors in a next to perfect mix. It has strength, roundness, maltyness, freshness and just about everything one could wish of a really great beer. BigBilly (127) - London W3 6PF, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2004
500ml brown bottle. Poured a clear ruby amber with gold frothy head. Rich spice roast raisins aroma.Spicy fruit flavour, lovely malt hop alcohol balance. Full bodied oily mouthfeel. Long finish.
Tastes like a de-tuned Vintage Ale.

Rich, toasty, nutty nose. Deep amber colour with a creamy head. Stunning flavour with - as the description says - oranges, and sweet malt. Finish initially smooth and gradually sharpens into a pleasing, slightly tangy lingering, bitter finish. A winner, and my new favourite from fullers. dynamiteninja (1853) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle. Aroma is lots of deep rich hops and lots of malt make this a very well balanced beer. Very fruity, especially orange. Heavenly. Pours a rich clear deep amber with a thick off-white head that dissipates. Medium bitterness, a full bodied brew. Undertones of sweetness balance this out. Rather glorious on the palate. Sweet and rich! Fullerís, youíve done it again! Brodies_Best (269) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 28, 2011
500ml bottle. Served at room temperature. Pours clear red gold and looks great. Head doesnít last long but thatís ok. Smells awesome. Aroma is of something similar to sherry. Sweet and warm (spices), alcoholic, fruity and malty. Initial taste is smooth, well balanced, alcoholic, warming spices, sweet, fruity. Malty taste comes through with butterscotch or some kind of creamy caramel desert. I would pick this as a desert beer or it could easily compliment a dish which required a bit of smooth fruity sweetness. Good work. Drank this on a cold summerís windy evening in Wellington. Almost 9pm and the sun is still out. marcosmlima (18) - S„o Paulo, BRAZIL - JUL 3, 2012

Oh Bugger. I just realised the alcohol content and I have jobs to do this afternoon. Ah well, they can wait.
Lustrous amber in colour with a skim of white head. I would proceed with a description, but I bow to the higher power of the brewer and accept unequivocally their description. I also endorse the finidings of the late Michael Jackson, as Iím remarkably fond of cognac. Thereís many similarities of flavour evident and almost demands a slice of Roquefort. If this beer was served at my wake, I would do my best to try and join in. Until then, a beer I shall make a bee-line for more often.
