4.25/5 rDev +9.3%
Appearance: Clear amber, good head (especially for such a high ABV).
Smell: Super sweet, maraschino cherries, extremely "bright" smelling, maybe from the ABV? Some caramel shows up as it warms. Very interesting smell.
Taste: Sweet. The cherry note from the smell shows up as red/cherry popsicle sweetness. Caramel sweetness comes along also. Enough bitterness in the finish to keep it from being too sweet.
Overall: I forget about Fulton sometimes because their flagship beers are so mediocre, but their big bottles are impressive. Worthy Adversary is very good, Libertine is good, and I really like this one, Patience. I like the cherry notes in the smell and taste, too bad it was so limited (and expensive!).

Well, a very bad man offered me a taste of this in his store this week (while I was, uh, working) & I went directly back & picked up a bottle. Jerk. 750ML minimialist Fulton bottle split with my wife.
Said bottle seems...heavy. Really heavy. Like, the heaviest bottle I've ever had in hand. I feel the urge to curl it. I resist, & open it instead. Out flows a golden, amber brew that delivers carbonation only after a pour of about two feet above the glass - but it's persistent. Nose is very, very, thick. Fruity. But thick. Like there's a lack of oxygen in the beer smell. Caramel apples. That's it.
Patience is so gooey it practically oozes out of the glass. Massively rich, this is one of few beers that probably took so many ingredients it justifies the premium price. Big malts, huge sweetness, & a continuation of the nose of caramel apple. Alcohol lashes out about 1/3 of the way through my pour; biting, warming. There's a deep, syrupy taste that I can't quite identify, but it's luscious. Mild bitterness cuts in at the end. At 13.2% this is a dangerous beer that should come with bright red warning labels.
The mouthfeel of this beer is a riotous triumph. Fulton continues to impress, & this is their finest beer to date. Excellent, & not far off of the elite for the category.
