A re-worked Alice Porter especially for Christmas. With orange zest, cacao and a tiny bit of chilli.

The perfect beer for Turkey, The Queen’s Speech, boring relativies and boozed up Pictionary.

Merry Christmas.

On tap at Sheffield Tap. As Winter Porter 6.2%. Black beer lasting tan head. Goid choc flavours. Touch of chilli on finish. A warming tasty porter. Built for a bright sunny winters day like today.

tombyars (1389) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2012
Tasted this at BrewDog, Glasgow in January 2012. Cask, draft flow system dispense. ruby black in colour with a thin buff head. Strong rich malty aroma with dark chocolate, coffee bean and fruit cake all present. surprisingly thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark complex malts deliver a rich christmas cake base with sultanas, raisins, sour victoria plum and bitter chocolate. Very little in the way of hops detected in the aftertaste. Finish is smooth and very malty with rich mocha coffee, roast grain and liquorice full in the mouth. An excellent porter and highly recommended.

stefannilssons (1472) - SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2011
Det här är en bra och välbalanserad porter med svårdefinierade kryddlika inslag. Smaken präglas först och främst av choklad men det finns något mer som jag inte kan precisera riktigt. Men det här är som sagt en god öl och en bra porter ich det enda negativa som jag kan komma på är att den är lite för kolsyrad.

Bottle:Red/brown colour, almost flatbrown head. Aroma is dominated of caramelly, dry fruits, chocolate and flowers , a bit brown sirup too. Flavor had a nice smokey/Chocolate mouth feeling, there was raisins, and caramelly, and fruits and citrus. Medium body, medium chocolate/coffee finish. Nice!
