Reddish brown and wonderfully complex with a stunning structure, this beer is pure magic and a perfect example of what Fuller’s can produce as a leading brewery. Fruit, plum bitter with strong robust delicious elegance and depth. Fantastic.

Bottle #40415. Deep copper-amber in colour, long lasting beige head, great lace. The aroma still has lots of caramel, some ginger, wood, earth and chocolate. The flavour was peaking, caramel malt sweetness, christmas cake, dark fruits, brown sugar abd raisins. Think mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation, Finishes with a lingering bitterness, creamy.
