Milk chocolate and toffee noise. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, with lots of chocolate, light roast, light dark fruit, and a touch of fruity yeast. Solid cask ale.

A Sim rate (cask at the Euston Tap): Sweet, tangy and hoppy aroma. Plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and winter berries. Great looking beer with an inviting caramel colour and a head that just doesn’t give up. Flavour is full-on malt and a bitterness that lasts with its nutmeg and cinnamon spice. Really great beer. I could drink loads of this....if only we had an open fire rather than a space heater!

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap. Dark garnet pour with a sturdy, white cream head. Malty aroma, with some cinnamon and other wintery spices, sugarplums, and hazelnut. Lovely, spicy flavor with perhaps nuitmeg and cinnamon, along with gingerbread, and faintly bitter lemon. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dries out a good bit in the finish, with lingering spices, some ginger tang, and sweet bread, along with modest bitterness. Better than decent.

Fin (9671) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2009
Cask, handpump at The Wellington, Birmingham 13-12-09 Pours chestnut with a slim white head. The aroma is malty and spicy. Taste is malty with demarara sugar, caramel and a dry bitterness which is quite subdued and comes through at the end. Fine enough but not quite up to the usual Thornbridge high standards.
