Cask (handpump) at the Princess of Wales, Villiers Street on 20 January 2011. Deep red. Thinnish, but lasting, beige head. Restrained, fruity aroma. Some roast notes on the palate with some noticeable (but difficult to identify) spiced notes. Also marked vanilla elements. A little sweet. Tasty but not entirely my thing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled at the Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Strange burgundy beer, which didnít immediately reveal itself to be one thing or another. Obviously an Xmas beer of sorts, with some wintry mulled-ness and a bit of murky fruit. The Thornbridge hop signature emerges slightly along the way, but this is not simply a hop vehicle, itís more of a strong ale, with some muscle.

Cask handpull at Old Buttermarket, Nicholsons in Canterbury. Fantastic customer service. I was here with Reakt on monday after christmas and I asked about this beer and left my email address not thinking too much abour it but lo and behold and i got an email saying it was now on. Dark heer lasting beige head. Some spice and rich malt on the aroma. Full in mouth with what i call that Thornbridge drinkability. Some more spice and choc and fruit cake on thrle finish. Very decent and worth the second pint

16th December 2010. On tap in the Magpie, Liverpool St. Not sure what this is really - canít find any information on it anywhere other than a note on the Thornbridge website to say they were brewing it! Clear dark red beer, decent creamy tan head. Soft palate, semi dry. Creamy malt with a touch of spice and then some fruit - cranberry and cherry. A whisper of smoke. Finishes dry with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Canít quite make this beer out but itís alright. Couldnít drink loads though.
