A little too heavy for my tastes. Malt drowns out all other tastes. Not a subtle beer.

DanielBrown (4408) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Cask at the Briar Rose, Birmingham. Sweet booming Bitter. Seems appropriate for the Christmas season and is intended to be so. Some nice allspice notes and gliding smoothness.

jamestulloch (3705) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle from Royal Mile Whiskies. Clear amber body with a thin white head. No visible carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of Christmas pudding, fig and a faint hint of rum. Flavour of ginger, lightly roasted malt and honey. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Subtle and tasty - I dont think I couldnt drink more than one in a sitting though. Maybe better suited to cask.

harrisoni (17594) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Cask handpull at County Hotel jdw Ashford. Clear dark amber colour lasting thin white head. Some spice on aroma. Spice and malt in the flavour. Finish has little hop presence. Condition is ok. Too much spice for me even though its not overly spiced.

Slight spicy aroma. Looks well with nice head. Amber colour. Ginger caramel taste. Definitely clootie dumpling as my mother made it. Wee bit of a kick on palate. Nice one. Will drink again

mighty_meadow (308) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2014
500ml bottle from Tesco. Flavour is a bit thin but all the spices are there plus some orange zest. Definitely tastes like clootie but would benefit from having a bit more depth in flavour.

Holmen1 (5245) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Flaske delt med importr Ovesen: kobberfarget med gardinskum. Smak og aroma har et visst appelsinpreg med litt krydder forsiktig i bakgrunnen, alt ganske kledelg og bidrar til at den er lettdrikkelig. Heller lavt karbonert men fin munnflelse. Den forsiktige bitterheten og behagelige ettersmaken gjr ogs sitt til at den er lett helle innp - en god session bitter med lav voltstyrke.
