worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
Dark brownish red with a thin fizzy most dissapearing tan head. Smells of caramel light roasted malt, nut, wood and spice. Medium oily body. Sweet taste of caramel malt, nut and light sour fruit with citrus with a dry bittersweet finish. Some nice Christmas spice. Clean smooth body and keeps me coming back.

Bottle. Bronze with a small head.Slightly malty and not really what it pretends to be-a winter beer. Pretty boring and nondescript.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle from B&M drank at home, 24/12/12. Chestnut with a dissipating cream collar. Aniseed, sprouts, nutty malt aroma. Pleasant if unexciting with bitter walnut, digestive biscuit and aniseed-spicy English hop. Coffee-dunked butter biscuit hints. OK.

AshtonMcCobb (2939) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2013
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - opaque black with just a chink of red around the edges. The head dissipates a bit too quickly. Nose - dark chocolate and liquorice Taste - more of the same, with malt bitterness in the finish. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a finish which is dominated by malt astringency. Overall - this seems to have a lot of poor marks. I think itís quite decent, of course these days this style of beer is not in vogue.

Aroma and flavour of toasty malts. Itís quite bitter and dry. A bit too light and thin though.

500ml bottle - no idea how or why the snowman was wronged to want to seek revenge on a bunch of beer drinkers, but it seems heís had a go anyway. Deep reddy brown in colour, the tan head is sticking around like the aforementioned snowman in a thaw. The nose is dark fruits, a bit of spice, and a mild hit of hops. The first hit is a bit thin, fizzy, some citrus, bitter herbs, afterwards the finish is a bit on the dry side. Not bad, but I think the heavier 5+% one would give more kick.

Leighton (11890) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO tasting - London. Pours clear, orange-gold with a foamy white head. Light toasty malts on the nose, faint leaves. Mild sweetness in the flavor, toasty dough. Kind of bland. Faint wood and leaves. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Boring finish, some leafy bitterness and toast. Drinkable just very pedestrian.

tommann (2861) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours chestnut brown with a medium head. Aroma is spicy carrot cake and bread. Taste is gassy and bready malt to start. More co2 and a little spice on the finish.
