500ml bottle from Morrisons. Thin off white head disappears quickly, no lacing. Body is dark ruby amber. Nose is caramel, berries. Flavour of Christmas cake and marzipan, berries and apple. Mouthfeel is quite thin, low carbonation. Decent enough job of getting the festive flavours across.

Patrickctenchi (3588) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pours deep, dark copper with a rough-bubbled, beige head. Berry, caramel aroma. Taste is bready malt, nut bitter, berry.... A little flat, overall not too bad....just unremarkable.

Bottle morrisons. No head. A v dark amber colour. Aroma is red berrie and malts. Taste is red berries fruity with a good balance of hop and malt. It has a strong carbonation. Nice enough not particularly festive.

Better than their ’Christmas Eve’ offering but nothing special. Sweet, fruity and lightly hopped.

EithCubes (4842) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle. Nose of nice dark toffee/caramel malts with sly edges of sweetness and mild fruitiness that’s been put down. Very slight English hops but some pleasant and distinct Old Ale streaks underneath. Beautifully tawny out of the neck but deepens as it collects in the glass to a dull blood red, supports a lacing beige head much the strange consistency of its root beer float counterpart. Light body with little malt tumble and even less carbonation, firm butter/butterscotch character along with the toffee, not all that sweet and drying toward the middle, with soft light bitterness and hints of dark chocolate. I like the subtle Goldings here even if they’re mixed with sulfurous cousins and there’s something of a scrawny rattiness to their bittering quality. On the whole, one to pass the time, and nothing more.

574deadzone (1027) - North Central, Indiana, USA - DEC 10, 2013
A great gift this holiday season...Pours a clear, deep copper with a buoyant rocky beige head. Nose involves sweet candy, orange peel, bubblegum, light tin, light vinegary British yeast, soft dough, suggestions of cinnamon, light blood, raisin bread. Fairly sweet with some bitterness. Medium bodied, oily, low carb, tacky, with kind of a blah finish. An ok brew. Surprised to see it categorized as an old ale as it’s listed at 4.7% ABV, but what else is it? Mostly, boring.

brnandersen (1872) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2013
500 ml. bottle poured in to a snifter, label says 4,7 % alc. Lovely, dark copper colour with a small, bubbly light tan head. Sweet aroma with dark, ripe fruits, nuts, caramel malts, light toasted. An oxidized-vinous note . Taste is sweet. Medium body with a slick feel, soft carbonation. Finishes spicy and bitter with ripe fruits and nuts. Given the complexity in aroma, the finish is a bit of a let down.
