X21 - Fuller´s Old Winter Ale

A nice, dark nose with some christmas spices, smoky notes and notes of cocoa, orange peel, cream and resin. Nice but it doesn´t stand out in a the crowd of winter warmers.
The taste is medium bodied and fine with notes of smoke, red dried fruits and some cream. A cool, nice, soft finish. The bitterness in the finish is very good though. Good but nothing more.

84p   (tasted from bottle - 2010/12)
