And in my case that particular minute was back in the 70s. But despite the fact I should know better by now I still forked out far too much of my hard earned dosh for Fuller's new Imperial Stout.
Having been successful in my second attempt at stocking up on sucker juice I managed to wait a whole day (well it was bottled conditioned) before drinking it.
And sure enough, I had been a sucker. The beer seemed a bit one dimensional really. It was very smooth, sweet, but really lacking a bit of bite. It could have done with some more hops, or perhaps a squirt of lactic acid. I couldn't notice any American hop flavour, and unsurprisingly the rose buds didn't register either. Turkish delight my arse the lovely Lisa said.
The beer would certainly make a great fruit cake, and probably improve with age, but I'm not going to find out as it cost so bleeding much it massively failed the Guinness FES test and I won't be buying it again.
