Twenty autumns have come and gone since this ravishingly strong ale was first produced in 1995 to celebrate Fuller's 150th anniversary. Inspired by the kind of rich and luscious beers brewed in the 19th century, this is a copper-chestnut beauty with hazelnuts, raisins and milky coffee notes on the nose, alongside a ringing chime of fruitiness (orange marmalade perhaps?). It's the kind of beer that deserves time to savour, with a chocolate-influenced smoothness, a juicy fruitiness and coffee grain dryness before finishing with an appetising bitterness. Because of its strength, this is a beer that will improve with age.
