Bottled, 500ml from The Co-Op in Alcomb, Somerset. Hazy amber with slight head. This is a heavily sweetened beer, honeyed, toffee flavours on a fruity malt. Plummy alcohol notes. Itís ok, but expected a little more.

Hazy amber beer, small cream coloured head. Crispy and dry palate. A little brandyish alcohol. Mild dried fruits. Trace of caramel. Dry alcohol finish but no real alcohol heat. Not terrible but lacks finesse.

High alcohol content, but neither too sweet nor too heavy. had this with Christmas dinner, so went well with rich meat and heavy fruit pudding! Echoed the raisins, slight hints of treacle, but also a nice bitter edge and clean bitter finish.
