3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rich amber. Malty aroma of caramel, cinnamon and clove. Hints of hop grassyness. Light mouthfeel. Nutty flavour, little caramel sweetness followed by a lingering and very bitter metallic finish. Wasnít quite what I was expecting. Doesnít finish well with me at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best Before: October 10, 2012
I tried this beer on November 18, 2011 after purchasing from the Queenís Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent golden red colour with a generous off-white head that stuck around. The aroma was wet grains, floral hops, toffee, and spice. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was slightly sweet malt, hints of spice, and a citrusy hop finish. Very good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear dark amber with average-sized light tan head. Aroma is a somewhat mild toasty nuttiness. Flavour is decidedly more pronounced with toasty caramel malt, nuttiness and a little fruit. Average body; relatively gentle carbonation. Solid but Fullers has lots of better beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber, small off-white head (might have been a bit too cold). When it finally starts to warm up thereís a pleasant malty aroma of molasses and a little fruit. Very sweet up front but it gradually gives way to a mild bitterness. Charming.

500ml bottle, 5.3% a/v
Pours mahogony brown with tan head. Aroma is slightly spicy and hoppy. The taste is dark and chocoltey almost, with some dark fruit flavours and the obvious christmas spices. The aftertaste is nice as well, spicy and clean!
