Cheddar Ales and Best of British Beer have collaborated on this very special Winter Ale. We’ve created a wonderful rich, dark beer that will warm your cockles on the coldest of winter nights. Think cinnamon, nutmeg and lovely rich fruit flavours, think liquid fruitcake.

Another collaboration ale based on the very popular totty pot with a slight twist, an injection of mulled wine. You can do a lot with darker ales and this was an inspired choice the spices and fruit compliment and enhance the porters initial flavour. On pouring the spices waft up from the glass and hit you full in the face the mulled wine clearly present, cinnamon and cloves reminiscent of the christmas market. there is ample head with this beer and barely any sediment. The flavour is rich, clementines and lemons add a bitterness to the smooth base and leave the refreshing zing at the back of the throat, with the wine blending with the nutty and chocolate flavours. A smooth full bodied ale.

Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Dark brown with a slight, off-white head. Cinnamon, clove and nutmeg aroma with a touch of roasted malts. Flavour was quite heavy on the cinnamon, with the cloves and nutmeg in the background, a touch of fruit cake sweetness and spicy finish. An enjoyable Christmas beer.

Beautiful slightly sweet cinnamon and spice aroma. Pours thick oily near-black with a little velvety tan head. One of the flavours is a little off, an odd bittnerness from a spice or possibly a fruit but then cinnamon and cloves come through and make this an overall interesting tasting beer, if ever so slightly sour.
