peter48er (185) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle conditioned from Inn Beer Shop Southport. Quite lively on pour with small white head which dissipated reasonable quickly but laced the glass throughout. Dark winter beer with a lovely malt, fruit and cloves taste. A really satisfying winter warmer, from a small, quality brewer. Difficult to source but worth seeking out.

Cask, gravity at Merton Winter Beer Festival, 17th & 18th February 2012 Dark brown with a few stray bubbles, smooth and with a fruitiness, there is a light tanginess and decent bitterness. I overlooked this beer a little over the weekend however it was quite decent. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
Cask conditioned at Merton Beer Fest 12. Black with cream head. Dry and bitter dark beer, heavy with dark roasted malts, biscuity and a fruity, sloe type flavour. Rich and deep and pretty enjoyable.

Roasty cakey aroma, just what I want in a winter warmer. In the mouth its a bit yeasty, even a bit marmitey, and a little muddled. Still smooth and sweetish. The yeasty hump detracted a bit, but once youre over that, its an OK beer. Shame, as the aroma sold it really well.

Bottle. Dark brown with a small head.Low carbonation with a nutty malty flavour. Warming with plenty of body for its strength. Creamy and stout like. Nice.

Cask Stillage at the Mill At The Pier, Wigan 05/03/2005 Dark coloured and strong in alcohol with a fruity bubble gum flavour. A hint of dryness and bitterness in a lasting malt finish.
