4.5/5 rDev +9.5%
Ruby red colour. Great head and excellent lacing sticking to the inside of the glass. Varied bubble sizes.
Smell is of nougat, malt, herbal spiciness. A bit of booze.
Taste is similar to aroma. Fruitcake, nougat, raisins. Malty sweetness well balanced with not inconsiderable bitterness..
Mouthfeel is perfect. Some carbonation..Bottle conditioning has helped the texture of this beer.
Overall a fantastic English strong ale. Some will say it would be better on cask but I have not yet tasted a better beer than this on cask in any English pub. Complex, deeply flavoured but well balanced and ultimately satisfying. A great advert for the refined craftsmanship of the Fuller's brewery.
My mark out of one hundred would be 92.

3.88/5 rDev -5.6%
500 mL bottle poured into a straight-sided glass.
Appearance - Deep brown with some reddish flecks. Nice off-white head. Settles to a medium collar.
Smell - Kinda generically malty. Lightly fruity. Very light hop aroma.
Taste - Toasty and caramel malt. Bitterness comes and goes. Finishes with a dry woody bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium low carbonation.
Overall - As with many of these beers, it's greater than the sum of its parts. A very pleasant beer.

Mahogany color with a thick beige head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Nice malty aroma with notes of English hops, cinnamon, dry fruits and caramels.
Bold flavor with notes of charred oak, caramel, raisins, multiple spices, lots of earthy hops, light tangy citrus, molasses, cocoa, tea leaves, their trademark yeast and crust bread. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with weak carbonation.
This is a very fine Ale, very well crafted and bold on flavors with good complexity. Above my initial expectations. A must for malt lovers.
