This sweet malty winter ale has a port-like aroma, oranges and lemons play around the edges of the tongue whilst dried fruit and cinnamon drive home the wonderful warming effect, the walnut aftertaste completes this slice of Christmas time in a glass.

mcberko (10562) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2011
On tap at The Wellington in Birmingham, pours dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma of light brown sugar and toffee. Flavour is much more full-bodied than the nose suggests, with toffee, burnt caramel and earthy hops. Full-bodied palate - malt heavy initially, with a hop finish. Very nice.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2010
[500ml bottle (Titanic Christmas Ale), The Bottle, York] Where to start with this one? Great hopes reading the label tasting notes quickly vanished amidst an uncomfortably bitter beer. Almost a lambic-like sharpness, overwhelming flavours of blood orange and grapefruit, some cinnamon but really nothing good at all to recommend it. Either ours was off (although it had a two year shelf-life), or it was extremely badly balanced. Doesn’t really matter, I’ll not be trying another [17122010]
