The beer of the Christmas past, present and future! This spicy and festive 4.5 percenter is like Scrooge himself - strong-willed, bitter and robust. This beer is brewed with cinnamon and packs a spicy punch. And so, as Tiny Tim said, "A Merry Christmas to us all; God bless us, every one!"

BlackHaddock (6113) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD 1st Jun 15, poured at home, into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 26th Dec 14. Wisp and collar, otherwise no head, the body a slightly hazy dark amber, mahogany colour. Cinnamon lead to the spicy, malty nose and taste. The beer grew on me, a bit ’homebrew’ at first, but as it warmed a little the flavours came through more and the carbonation level began to suit the beer more than initially, as it came across slightly flat in the first two sips. All in all a good Winter/Christmas brew. I also know the new brewer has altered the recipe a little for 2014, same ingredients, but different amounts!

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Cask-conditioned, served by gravity at the Tewkesbury winter beers festival, 7/2/2014. Slightly hazy amber with next to no head. Orange peel, cinnamon, some caramel, solid malts and a decent, bitter finish. Good.
