0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark amber color. Sweet caramelly and resiny. Sweet soft caramel taste with some pine resin, nuts, toffee, prunes, raisins and warming alcohol. Bittersweet finish. Smooth palate. Tasty and well made beer although there is more caramel than I would like. Erasmus_ro (3133) - Alabama, USA - APR 12, 2014
UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 Bottle, 200th English rating. Pours amber with a nice, beige head that lasts a long while. Aroma is fairly light with caramel, some orange marmalade. Taste is Fuller’s orange marmalade, caramel, fairly light. The herbal hit in the finish is rather a surprise that sets this one apart from the other Fuller’s strong ales. Full with decent carbonation. Gurthnar (6171) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 11, 2014
Bottle.e Aroma is caramel, stale, very average. Slightly soapy, metallic. Clear deep amber colour. Taste is rather sweet, caramel, honeyish, with a very stale hoppiness. At least alcohol is hidden well. This failed to impress me in any way. Cuso (8933) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2014

Bottle at Behind the hills beer tasting 2014. Pours dark golden color, white foamy head. Aroma is carmel, malty, plums. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, plums, alcohol. Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 3, 2014
It says ruby on the label and that’s a good reflection of the truth. Ruby to polished mahogany in colour with a skim of head and evident sparkle. Very rich aroma of plums, figs and steamed pudding. There’s some amber resinous quality and ripe autumnal fruits as well. It really is a complex aroma. A sweet, oily body and elegant flavours. Just a suggestion of bitterness but long finishing because of the mass of malty flavours. Indeed, malt is the superstar and begs for me to have more of this.
