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.

Bottled (from Estate Wine, Holstebro). Ruby colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruits, raisins, some toffee, caramel malts and some mild fruity bitterness as well. Flavour is quite much the same. Mild spicyness as it warms up. Lovely balanced beer.

harrisoni (13883) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2009
500ml bottle at The Rake courtesy of MagicDave6. Ruby, thin white head. Itís a bit syrupy, some red fruits. Not a great, even slightly farty aroma. Syrupy fruits in the mouth. In fact, too syrupy for me.

yngwie (13780) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle. A clear, reddish brown beer with a small beige head. The aroma has some spices, with dried fruits, roasted notes, caramel and a little sourish note. Itís too sourish in the mouth, with caramel, some spiced notes and a touch of bitterness. Medium to full body. Dried fruits, some roasted malts and spiced in the finish. Far from impressive, actually nothing more than half-good. 101105

Leighton (11348) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle shared at the Craft Beer Co. - Clerkenwell, London Holiday Tasting - thanks to me, lover of ESA. Pours clear copper with a tight, tan cream head. Dry brown bread nose, some toasted brown sugars, dried fruits. Medium sweet flavor with dry brown bread, bitter leaves, light cocoa, some dirt. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish, lightly sticky, some earthy and leafy bitterness, rich and well toasted whole grain bread. Not bad, actually.
