BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
24th Oct 2010: My first Christmas beer this season (the bottle is best before the end of Oct, so it’s last years brew). Poured into an ’Abbot Ale’ tankard. Dark ruby red in body colour a good foaming head of a light tan hue sat on top. The smell is of toasted/roasted barley, they also dominate the taste. This is a true, sit by an open fire sort of winter warmer and evokes all the traditional thoughts of a Victorian Christmas. Fuggles hops ensure the malts don’t have it their own way and the beer has a nice balanced feel to it, dark and malty throughout, but with a hoppy bitterness under the surface with comes out as the mouth dries. A difficult to find beer; but well obtaining and trying.

Cask@Nottingham Beer Festival 2010. Blackish brown beer with a light head. The aroma is mildly roasted, and the flavour is bitter and gently roasted and malty. Overall a good roasted, mildly malty and bitter beer.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2007
Bottled, Bakewell Farmers Market, Xmas 2006. Deep (red), (not) crisp and even so it’s still a solid kind of ESB. Nothing remarkable but with a thick, rich malt that has the right level of clinginess at that time of year.
