I found half a dozen dusty bottles of an unknown beer at the back of a cupboard in the garage today. Checking back through my brewing records it was a Fullers 1845 attempt that I brewed in January 2013. I took a bottle out in to the back garden in case it exploded and hit the ceiling, but it decapped with a pleasant pop and poured a crystal clear ruby red. Nose is liquorice and black treacle. Flavour is initially smooth, sweet malt, with a spicey, black pepper finish and warmth of alcohol. Suprisingly, still has a firm bitterness. It has a rich vinous quality, a bit like Rodenbach. A beautiful beer.
