GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Amber in color with a modest head. Smells of sweet brown fruitcake. Medium nectar with creamy carbonation. A touch of sweetness with roasted nuts, fruitcake, spices, coffee and plum. Nice bittering on the finish. A bit like sarsaparilla with a kick.

Beer4000 (4703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2013
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Clear amber body with a small beige head. Aroma is more than less caramel malt alone. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel and bitterness with a hint of fruit. Medium body and short aftertaste. A one-dimensional beer.

wlajwl (4127) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Aroma is heavy malts and medium sweetness. The flavor is sweetish malts, mild nuttiness and a mix of tart fruit and slight sourness in the finish.

marcus (6860) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours reddish brown with a modest beige head and a toasted malt aroma. There is a strange smoked malt and red fruit flavor with some spices and a slightly bitter finish.

mighty_meadow (273) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Dark brown with small white head. Reminds me of under-ripe fruit, plums? Hints of burnt toast. Very faint spice, aniseed. Bitter aftertaste. Nothing Christmassy about this although maybe the fact I am drinking this in February is part of the reason. Got it for £1 in Morrisons today. I’m glad I didn’t pay more for it. Poor!!!

jabersquawk (10) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Yeasty, with light fruit. Very thin in mouthfeel, but that's what would be expected of this style of English ale. Altogether, a tasty ale for the holiday season - no bells & whistles, just a good, round ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ron (2726) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle. Pour is a dark tan with no head. Aroma is some earthy malts and dark fruit. Flavor is some sweet malt and again a dark fruit is there. This seemed really flat and lifeless. Thank you dear wife for the Christmas present. It’s a nice bottle.

Pretty well hopped to be a Christmas beer, but it works. Creamy malty with a nice balance.

I am drinking this as I am playing trivial pursuit on Christmas Day. Perfect for this situation. Dark brown. Tastes ok. You don't have to think about it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
