29th December 2012
Opaque dark brown beer with a small pale tan head. Palate is crisp but the beer has some body. Touch of dark toffee, a little licorice. Trace of orange hops. These flavours are really dominated by the strong cinnamon. It’s a smooth cooling cinnamon, but there is a lot of it! Trace of dark fruits. Minerals. Semi dry finish with some hop bitterness. Interesting beer but hamstrung by the cinnamon overdose.

Far too sweet, overpowering the beer’s basic coffee & treacle taste and aromas
