Tried the bottled version tonight. It comes in a pack of four, Fuller's "Autumn Beer Festival" selection, along with three other beers: Organic Honey Dew, Red Fox, and London Porter. BB 21/10/2007, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: deep dark amber in colour, topped with a creamy off-white froth that lasts well; gentle but constant flows of tiny bubbles in action.
S: notes of sweet caramel, toffee, raisins, dried blackcurrents, young ruby port, sweet black tea leaves all come in one sniff~~ very well-mixed and featuring crystal malts and sour-sweet dried fruits, but slightly one dimensional in terms of complexity.
T: just like the smell, but better in structure and more subtle in composition--dried stone-fruitiness leads the way, slightly sour but also sticky-sweet; then the caramely malt flavour reveals in a most subtle manner, ensued by a quietly expanding woody/tea-leafy bitterness as of Fuggles that lends some more length as well as spiciness to the malty theme. Soothing aftertaste of walnutty and hop bitterness along with a little burnt, dryish palate and a lingering, sour-sweet echo of raisins.
M&D: compared with the cask version that I tried before, the texture is certainly more fizzy and slightly drags down the performance, but never to the point of offsetting the flavour. Medium-bodied, Winter Warmer-type bitter this is, with a more subtle and balanced flavour profile to offer than the sweet nose suggests. Worth a try!

500ml bottle

Pours with a rich copper body with some nice varied hints of amber. Thick patchy foamy white head with good retention and plenty of lacing down the glass

Smell, sweet casky malt, some fragrant english aroma hops off in the distance. Sweet toffee and caramel aromas, along with a whiff of bready alcohol

Taste, thick rich malty body with a very crisp mouthfeel. Syrupy sticky sugar and caramel, crisp biscuity finish. Some slight hop bitterness left on the palette

Very cask like and very drinkable. Another solid beer from Fullers

Enjoyed on-tap at Beerbistro. Pours a medium yellow, with lasting moderate white head. Lines of lace. The odour is slightly odd. Above avrage mouthfeel. Taste is malty, a significant spiceyness and bitteress. No exceptional taste, more or less an average beer.
