Taste is similar of toffee, fruitcake, treacle, raisin, some brown sugar, subtle prune, a little vanilla and some oak. Medium bodied and a slightly oily texture. A sweetish, warming, oaky, vanilla finish. Feels like a Christmas beer this, full of spices, fruitcake flavours and some alcohol warmth. Tasty.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Live rating of a 500ml bottle from Glug Newcastle, bottle states 8% ABV. Served cellar cool in a Hoegaarden Grand Cru snifter. Cough linctus and treacle toffee aroma rising from bottle and glass Beautiful russet brown body with a proud creamy off white head. Powerfully flavoursome. Christmas cake, treacle toffee, oakiness, and an astringent hint of balsamic vinegar. Full-bodied, slightly oily, long chewy finish. I’m absolutely loving this.
