johndoughty (3890) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Bottle. Black with a small head. Malty with spices in background. Quite well bottled which is more than you could say about their only other beer that I have tried. Therefore an improvement but stil not very exciting.

leaparsons (7991) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown with no foam. Aromas are cola with marzipan and festive cloves and spices. Slightly oily with cola and dark chocolate and treacle. Lightly smoked with hints of ginger. Flavours are earthy and dry with raisins and dark chocolate. Plummy with trace garlic and mixed spices. Vegetable notes with a herbal finish. OK.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2011
Reddish-brown. Rich malts, sugar sticky with cinnamon and lots of clove. Very clovey on the palate, too, with cinnamon and maybe some fruits and lots of sticky malts.

Beershine (5213) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Cask @ Royal Oak Bath. Rich dark garnet hue. Scant head. Aroma is spritzy, with mild cinnamon. Soft palate makes it drinkable. Great spice profile makes it just the way I like a winter ale. Solid sweet malts and a spicy finish. Good.

Pigs Ear. Clear brown beer, ghost of a white head. Light palate, light coca cola and milk chocolate. A little licorice. Some repressed fruit. Semi dry finish. As Leighton said - vaguely Pumpkin beer like. Not bad though.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 Cask at the Pig’s Ear BF 2010. Pours dark amber-brown with a filmy head. Rich pumpkin and spice aroma with some malts. Very sweet flavor, tons of pumpkin, nutmeg and other "winter" spices, and some bread. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Spicy finish with nutmeg and cinnamon, pumpkin, bread and ginger, and light bitterness. Pretty damn good. I liked it. (3.9)

Bottle during the High Speed Tasting Pt. II on the train back to London. I bought this one at Cotteridge Wines. It was a MASSIVE gusher. Pours cloudy brown with a light, off-white cream head. Spices in the nose, some brown bread. Medium sweet flavor with nice wintery spices, nutmeg. Light to medium bodied with fine, average carbonation. It’s a tasty, spicy winter ale. But a fuckin’ awful gusher it was too. (3.6)

A Mes rate. Gravity at the Bree Louise.
Amber brown with a thin off white head. Full on Christmas beer type stuff. Lots of spice and clove, Christmas pudding and plenty of malt. Decent stuff just not my type of thing.
