Leighton (21879) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell during the Peter’s leaving do. Picked up at CPK about four years ago. Pours clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Despite the beer’s age, the aroma is outrageously pungent, with lots of Christmas fruitcake, candied fruits, cinnamon, stewed apples. Medium sweet flavor with some rich fruitcake, bread, toasted grains, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, some booze. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming finish, a little sticky sweet, with buckets of wintery spices, fruitcake, ripe berries, some toffee. Rich. Very tasty for a spiced winter beer.

Scopey (15290) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours clear deep red-brown with a small white head. The nose is earthy, rather spicy, earth, root vegetables, some acidity, light vinegar and tang. The taste is bitter-sweet, earthy, caramel, spicy, brown bread, festive action, fruit cake, carrot cake, toffee, toasty brown sugar, light booze and umami with a dry, spiced finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A bit chewy. Not bad at all.

Inkább hasonlít egy forralt borra,amibe beleáztattak egy pár darab házi mézeskalácsot és karamellizált mogyorót. Édes, fűszeres, malátás, valóban van karácsonyi hangulata. Talán ebből lehetne valami érdekesebb forralt sört pancsolni. Nem kéne mindennap, az biztos.

Doftar mjuk pepparkaka och smakar detsamma. Söt och kryddig. Än annorlunda lite rolig julöl.

TheCaptMatey (214) - Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Poured a amber to brown colour with a thin off white head. Aroma is of ginger, nutmeg and molasses. Taste is of nutmeg with accompanying hints of cinnamon, ginger with dark fruits and brown sugar. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation and a sweet finish. Very similar to a pumpkin beer. Enjoyable, but not an everyday brew.
