4.14/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark copper, nice large-bubbled foam, clear.

Aroma is very grainy and appetizing, you can really smell the malt, a bit like a well made lager of the traditional kind. Some dried fruit and yeast esters. Caramel is paramount but not cloying.

Taste complements the aroma with a moderate smooth bitterness, some yeast notes at the end of the aftertaste. Pleasant mouthfeel with just the right amount of body and carbonation.

Overall a very nice ale that tastes more bready and therefore fresher than anything I have had from Fuller's. Otherwise not very unique, follows their regular palette. A bit mysterious as their website does not list this. Strength is a bit higher but alcohol is well hidden, easy to drink.

3.71/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a deep, dark reddish brown with thick, soft head.

Smell is malty with notes of rye bread and dried fruit, along with a hint of spice.

Taste is fruity and rich, with a nice, solid malt base and a slight hint of yeast. Notes of dried fruit, chocolate and a hint of leather. Moderate bitterness, well balanced.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a fine winter ale, balanced and tasty.
