COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - October to January. Available Bottle Conditioned as Christmas Ale.
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.

Cask - Fat Cat, Norwich. A reddy brown colour with a slight beige head. Full fruity and tobacco aromas disperse towards the nose along with its noticeable alcohol content. The flavours are warming, a decidedly berry-like fruitiness. Quite a syrupy mouthfeel that saturates the whole palate. This was too sweet in pint form for me but it was a pleasant drink.

Bottled as Christmas ale 2005.A perfect example of what can go wrong with a bottle conditioned ale. Brown appearance with a sour aroma.Initial impressions were not good but got worse.Vinegary is the only way to describe this beer that was just about drinkable. Drinking this was not a very pleasant experience.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 As Titanic Christmas Ale. Bottle conditioned. Brewed in 2004, bottled in 2005 (according to the label). Deep mahogony in colour, no head. Aromas are winter fruit with tobacco and a fair amount of smokiness. Also, mollasses and mellow berries. Flavours are soft berries with medicinal, herbal notes. Has a sweet, dark syrup base, mollasses with some earthy woodiness. Sweet, spicy and herbal on the finish. It certainly tastes Xmassy. Quite mouth numbing in its alcohol - or warming. Pretty good.

Swirly looking red beer with a strawberry like aroma and a strong and fruity flavour. Overall a good fruity strong ale.
