COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
50,000 bottles were brewed using a traditional recipe of Target, Challenger and Northdown hop varieties. The taste is rich with notes of marmalade, raisins and Christmas cake; the spicy hops well balanced with a pleasant bitterness.

Tasted: Jan 2005 - Bottle No. 54315. Deep mahogany hue with a decent off white head. Pronounced fruity aroma with hints of fig. Rich sweetish flavour with a sappy raisiny fruit body. A little too early to drink I feel. Need more age to get the best of those complex flavours.

rich and fruity aroma, pours with a deep bronze/copper hue and an off white head, strong fruitcake and alcohol flavour, treacle like in texture, this is similar to "1845", obviously though it has not had time to mature yet.
