500ml bottle. Pours deep copper. Heavy malt aroma with not much else. Similarly heavy and toasty malt to taste with a good amount of smoke and coffee notes leading to a surprisingly sharp bitter finish. Better balanced with the bitterness than many dark malty ales.

berkshirejohn (5033) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
50cl bottle from B&M, Reading. Unlike most recent ratings, this bottle actually had some live in it and produced a reddish chestnut pour with a reasonable cream head, and some signs of carbonation. Apart from that itís a rather basic boring bitter, with a biscuity aroma; sweet caramel malt taste; the faintest hint of hops; and a biscuity finish. Drinkable, but not a beer to relish.

daviv (1) - WELLINGBOROUGH, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015 does not count
This was bought from b & m store for just over 1£ per bottle.Bought only 2 luckily as both smelt and tasted terrible,stale and vinegary with no head.According to the label best before is Feb 2016 so must be a problem with something getting in during the brewing process rather than age.

imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2015
Bottled, 500ml from Home Bargains in Banbury. Reddish amber with no head, flat. This proved to be a real stinker of a beer, acidic, off. Drain pour.

Shocking beer on discount at b and m says it all really shouldnít have expected much but this is rank looks smells and tastes like pond water went down the sink after a mouth full notes of viniger and cat piss. L

Hanoi (577) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Bottle. Bought for a £1 at Home Bargins to break a twenty for parking. Nose is stale, berry, slight floral notes. Apperance, is murky and flat. Taste is almost nonexistent, itís predominantly water, slight berry, a little bitterness, no finish at all. Mouthfeel is like your uncles first attempt at home brew, thin and watery. I was not expecting a lot given itís providence, but this is genuinely one of the worst beers I have had in years. I assume itís a bad batch which has been dumped in HB to serve the undiscriminating alcoholics of the north and the desperate. Terrible.

SarkyNorthener (2819) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle from B&M, walsall. Dark brown beer, flat. Aroma is fruit malts and a hint of vinegar. Taste is stale fruity malts, lifeless. Bad snowman. Drain pour.

planky84 (2338) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle from the Beers of Europe Christmas Crate. Burnt orange pour, no head. Lots of sweet citrus fruit in the aroma. Not too troubling flavours of malt and sweet citrus. Exceedingly flat. It irks me that so many of these Crimbo beers have very little carbonation and are as dull as fuck. The labelís nice though.

Mr_Pink_152 (1690) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2014
500ml bottle from B&M. Very disappointing beer. I guess you just chuck a Christmas label on a bad beer and people will buy it, I did. Deep gold. Little is any head. Some malts and caramel in aroma and taste.

500ml bottle from B&M Bargains. Pours chestnut with little white head. Dry and bitter. Bit smoky. Itís alright.
