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.

I must have got a real bad bottle. Murky muddy brown zero head metallic and cardboard taste. A real bad one. Will have to give it another try. Was really looking forward to this.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 500ml bottle from Brewery this time last year (seems my original rating disappeared) - Hazy russett pour, lots of head, little bit of floating sediment which settles. Very grapey boozy nose, similar to a cognac without the harshness. Rich ripe body, long warm aftertaste. Great.
