3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Pours deep brown with a nice, small, creamy, yellowish head. Very sweet aroma with milky caramel, some grass, light nutty. Low carbonation, lovely oily mouthfeel. Flavour is slightly harsh actually. A little metallic. Some viniousness. Otherwise heavy on the caramel, nuttiness, lightly roasted notes and quite a heavy hoppy bitterness in the finish. A tad weird but fairly drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the rake with mes, ian and chris. Alround rating: The cad pulls one out the bag with his super power exstreme memory that others can only marvel at. Big ruby malt character, rich fruit cake, a bit yeasty, no hops. Alround a good effort.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate. Bottle from the Rake. An amazing bright ruby colour but no head at all. Nice creamy alcohol and cakey malt. Chunky dark fruit and a pleasing liquidice note. Straight forward but very enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle at The Rake courtesy of MagicDave6. Ruby, thin white head. It’s a bit syrupy, some red fruits. Not a great, even slightly farty aroma. Syrupy fruits in the mouth. In fact, too syrupy for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl of Christmas Ale at 7.6% from Utobeer, Borough Market. A slightly hazy golden brown with a small and rapidly fading off-white head. Rich christmas cake aroma with glace fruit, brandy, port, raisins and caramel and just a hint of vanilla. Thick, oily, texture, with a luscious booze-soaked fruit cake flavour - with chunks of apricot and pineapple as well as raisins and sultanas. The finish is warming and port-like and covers the alcohol really well. Excellent, even though Christmas was five months ago.
