Bottle from Blue Glass, Bedford. Pours dark maroon brown with minimal head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, dark fruits, light roasting, black treacle and a touch of spice. Medium plus sweetness, light to moderate bitterness. Medium body, slight oily and watery texture, soft to flat carbonation. Has a Christmas ale feel to it.

Cask conditioned at Birmingham Beer Fest ’13. Chestnut with ruby hue and off white head. A rich, smooth beer, quite like a ruby mild in character, silky chocolate malt notes nicely amalgamated with the other flavours. There is a late fruity, fructose sweetness. A very pleasant beer. leaparsons (10866) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
