Lovely rich colour, spongy head. Subtle, but interesting fruity and
sweet aroma. Lovely smooth palate. Full taste - dark and roasty, but not
going all the way to burntness. Like a winter warmer but without the
alcohol - good winter quaffer.

Strictly speaking a Winter Warmer. Winter Warmers can sometimes be a Barley Wine or a Strong Bitter, but can also be an Old Ale. This had a soft (oh so soft!) malty base. This was all about the deep, deep, deeply delicious malt. There was a slight wine edge, and a restrained alcohol warmth that kept urging to burst through, but was held back by the smooth (oh so smooth) malt. Gone too soon!
