500ml bottle served in a tulip glass.
A: Pours a dark amber color. Beautiful and clear. Forms a small creamy and thin bubbled light beige head. Good retention and many small spotty lacings left in the glass
S: Sweet caramel grains and flowery hopys, basically. Notes of dark fruits and alcohol
T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet caramel malts upfront. Toffee, roasted malts, dark fruits and bready yeasts. Nice dry hoppy bitter end
M: Medium body and medium to low carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste. Caramel malts and English hops
O: Good drinkability. Not the best from Fullerís but still a enjoyable Ale

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Hazy, dark amber colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Dark malty, moderately toasted malty taste with nutty notes, caramel, dried fruits (raisins) and a tinge of alcohol. Mildly sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark malt character with notes of dried fruits, caramel and hoppy spice in the background; sweet-bitter, toasty and mildly fruity finish with a touch of warming alcohol. Likeable and rounded brew but not as exciting as expected. 04.VII.14

Excellent big ABV with a nice head. Resins and some sweetness with astringent alcohol burn in the back ground. Overall nice for a wintery evening.
