Pours a dark copper brown. Aromas of dark malt and some hops. More interesting in the mouth with some bitter chocolate, nuts, rye bread, and more dark malt. Good balancing hops, and very dry and crisp. Good English style Christmas beer.

Bottle. BB Mar 2013. Pours opaque, amber brown with average off white creamy head and decent lace. Aromas of nuts, pitted fruits, currants, toffee and toast. Sickly sweet almost with a light floral hop character. Medium body, medium carbonation. Chewy toffee complex body - nutty malt, a touch chalky with a sweetness balanced with certain bitterness lingering right through the semi sweet satisfying finish. Mineral like yeast character lingering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
murky brownish black color, thin off white head. Mostly a solid collar.
Almond, malt, caramel, chocolate, pear and dark fruits. Nice bold nose for such an ABV that it is.
Taste pretty much the same as the nose.
Thin but coats well and a good long lasting flavor.
