Bottle (damaged notes from the flooding of my basement). Sweetish aroma...all I could read.

Sjohnh (1032) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Dark brown with a reddish tinge, starting with a decent off- white head but soon looking like Pepsi. Medium body. Very malty, giving burnt toffee and some bitter chocolate. Also nuts and some dried fruits. Bit too much of a tar taste for me.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle thanks to my sister for christmas. Pours a dark brown with mahogany flashes down the side of the glass. Smallish dense light tan coloured head. Fine lacing leaves as except the thinest film. Aromas of sweet light caramel, cinnamon and ginger and some light stone fruits. Very christmas like. Flavours are sweet thanks to all the malt with only feint hop bitterness to finish. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel with slightly resiny after taste.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Appearance: Clear dark brown with ruby highlights and finger thick ivory head. Aroma: Dried fruit, caramel/toffee note, bread, grassy/hay and nutty. Taste: Low sourness, low/medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average carbonation, abrupt fairly dry bitter/sweet finish of dried fruit, chocolate malt and a hint of pepper. Comments: Very good and glass lace.

PapaVillum (955) - Valby, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2015
Mahognifarvet og rolig julebryg / English Strong Ale med 3 cm stor moccafarvet skumkrone, som svinder til et par mm tykkelse. Ganske fin og anderledes aroma af soyasovs og brunkage. Senere noter af rugbrød. Dejlig smag med let indledende syrlighed og en fin balanceret bittersødme med noter af chokolade og ristet malt. Aldrig for sød, aldrig for dominerende bitterhed, selvom denne spiller den største rolle. Solid bitter, middel sødme. Blød mundfølelse med en nedjusteret karbonering. Middel fyldig krop og olieret konsistens. Afslutningen er bitter, kort og tør. Forbavsende meget smag i denne forholdsvis alkohol-milde jule-ESB. Og ganske god. 500 ml, flaske, 5,5 % ABV, BB: 24/10/15, købt i SuperBest i Rødovre Centrum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle - Vintage 2004 (Traded at the brewery late Oct 2004)
Label says: A strong dark beer, originally brewed for the festive season. Maris Otter Malting Barley, Fuggles Goldings and Challenger Hops, with a handful of Chocolate Malt, combine to give a robust, dark ale.
Dark brown in color and a rich head. Plums in aroma. Plums, raisins and nuts in taste. Fullbodied and quite sweet and nice for a cold winters day. A roasted finish with a hint of chocolate/nougat. Very good for a UK bottled beer.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2011
Bottle with Andrew and Carla. Pours a clear medium brown with long lasting frothy foam. Smellls a slightly sweet and bitter with hints of nuttiness. Tastes nutty with hints of alcohol and coffee.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2006
Beautiful chestnut brown colour. Very malty british ale with nuts and spices ending in a dry bitter finish.
