Bottled. Rich raisiny aroma with hints of Wychwood artificialness. Deep copper hue with a off white head. Fruity (cherry/plum) flavour and very sweet. Syrupy texture and bitter finish. OK but not the best christmas ale.

Really liked this Christmas beer, pity the review and the second one I did both got erased from the BA site somehow. I know it had a plum rich flavour and aroma, it was a dark ruby colour, which looked great. The spice ímaceí is used in the brew, I knew there was something in the flavour, but I didnít pick up just one spice, mixed spices hit me in the nose and in the mouth. Pity I canít remember the whole review, it was a good read!

Bottled. Reddish amber colour with a small beige head. Aroma is plum, raisins, some mild sweet maltyness as well as mild herbal notes. Flavour is raisins, sweet malts, fruits and some floral notes. Old bottle, but nice to see some hops have survived as well.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Brown beer with a crisp palate. Good carbonation. Strong sourish fruit, the spice is subtle. Refreshing.

Cask, forget where. Red/purple tinted brown with an off white head. Not a great deal in the nose but Iíve got a cold and next to no sense of smell anyway. Quite reasonable flavour without the usual metallic thing you get with a lot of Wychwood beers. Jammy fruityness. Quite drinkable, shame about the metal presence.

DruncanVeasey (7144) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2009
Piperís End, New Yearís Eve. Clear chesnut with a pinkish beige collar collapsing to a halo. Nose natural jammy fruit, hint of cask. That sourish yeasty Wychwood thing. Mouth unsickly fruit sweetness, slightly balanced with oily English hop traces, apple and berry fruit, oak, malt nuttiness. Was expecting much worse.

joe19612 (1840) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown colour with a thin white head. Plenty of malt in the aroma. The taste is a bit sugary at first, then comes the winter fruit. The taste is a bit sour in the finish. Not sure if i like it or not.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2009
Dark brown with an off white head. Sweet, slightly leathery malt aroma. Taste is sweet malt with some plummy sourness. No bitterness. The overall effect is of a proprietory cough remedy: not unattractive, quite interesting, but not something youíd want to sample twice in the same lifetime.

Bottle, Morrisons, West Kirby. Something a bit nasty and ill conceived about this....Definite artificial tang, aroma was a mixture of car tyres and gummy plums. Sickly flavour, couldnít finish. Booo
