COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Seasonal;
Brewed for Nicholsonís Chain
Otherwise known as Santaís gift to himself! A unique and luxurious brew displays an alluring red hue when held up to the light. Lingering hints of orange and cherry sweetness are balanced nicely by the punchy Admiral and Stirling hops, providing a sharp, fresh and fruity seasonal choice.

Bottle; as St Nickís Tipple, and at 5.3% (but I assume itís the beer listed here!); very dark, just a hint of amber glow around the edges; no head; aroma of dark chocolate; taste is smooth bitter dark chocolate and coffee, dark fruits; mouthfeel is quite light for a stout but this makes it easy to drink; I liked it.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Crown, Oxford. Amber with slight head. Rough, tart, over fruity, sour cherries but in a bad way. Nicholsonís are now charging £3:55 a pint in here and serve beer this bad, sorry but not good enough.
