33cl bottle thanks to BenH. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn crema head. Nose - roast malt and burnt raisins. Dark chocolate edge. Taste - chocolate and sultanas with a spicy note lurking in the background. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a nice balanced finish. Overall - expected to get a bit more fruit but itís still tasty.

allmyvinyl (9562) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle at Craigís. Pours deep dark brown, thin tan head. Aromas of raisins and mixed fruit, not surprisingly. Taste is more of the same, with a strong orange note, toffee sweetness. Rich and full-bodied. Good.

McNeillR (2233) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Opaque dark brown, big pillow of wet sand bubbly head. Fresh baked christmas pudding, Sweet thrash of plum and raisins with a cascade of plucked berries later on pushing the bitterness. This has held up very nicely, although a pulsing gush throughout the pour. Iím sure I have a decent rate of this from a bomber in the backlog archives, but nice to pitch this in anyway.

This beer courtesy of Craig, thanks very much my friend! Consumed at home in the garden Sunday 11th August 2013 Black with large beige gead, very lively but thankfully poured in the garden, christ this is lively. Just a hint of a sour edge, its fruity and yes there is a little Christmas cake edge. There is no heat but I feel that I can taste a bit of chilli, little sticky. Itís fine, thanks again Craig.

TheCametron (2369) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle courtesy of BenH. Cheers pal. Drunk on the meadows in the blazing sunshine. A really fruity little number this. Does conjure up the christmas mincemeat making process. Dark plummy fruits and irregular sweetness. Itís another peach from Elixir who use a lot of wacky addititives but not just for the sake of it. Drank half the bottle then added the second half to me and Benís Vanilla milkshakes. That was textbook. Maybe a sideline?

Bottle 330ml.

[ Trade by cgarvieuk ]. Clear dark brown colour with a large to huge, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, beige to light brown head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, fruity - berry, smoke. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, roasted, smoked, fruity, zest, citrus peel. IMO unbalanced but fun. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130127]
