Newcastle Scotch Ale back label, "The beauty of this style is its fulsome malt character..." Come on now fellas, our dictionary defines "fulsome" as "Offensive, disgusting."

@Ragman,
I think these guys were using the word in its earlier English meaning, which was "ABUNDANT"
I recall that in Penthouse Magazine, there were many girls with nice fulsomes
