3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Very deep red-brown. Thin, persisting, cream-brown head. Very light carbonation. Aroma is woody, nutty, whisky, some dark, vinous fruit, but mainly dry, woody, terpenoid, licorice and some choc. Taste initially tangy hops and sweet milk choc, with a bit of iron/metal, followed by dry licorice bite, good bitter balance, finishing dry. Bit too dry for me, but drinkable. Not a big aftertaste, just hints of dark malt and choc. Bit astringent, mid-light body, slight creaminess, but mostly watery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours dark, amber-brown with a frothy, off-white cap. The aroma holds toasted sugars, sweet malts and caramel. Flavor is medium sweet with a creamy, toffee and caramel character. There is some toast, grapes and other ripe fruits, dough, jam. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, slightly sticky finish with mostly toasted caramel and doughy bread. Not a great beer by any means, but there are some fun aspects to it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle Conditioned, 500ml from Notcutts Garden Centre, Oxford. Deep chestnut with a ring of head. Sweet malted biscuits came to mind, the one’s with the tractor picture on them, then a wine like fruitiness, grapes, hints of yeasty spice, some roasty notes. Maybe a little underpowered for a Christmas Ale but reasonably tasty.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A slightly sour edge is the main fault with what is otherwise a very nice beer, with a roasted malt flavour and sweet hints.
