COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bottle conditioned version of Firebox with the addition of spice oils.
Pale malt, chocolate malt; Progress and Target hops; ginger, cloves, cinnamon, corriander, nutmeg, pimento. A dark, rich spicy bottle-conditioned ale, resonant with Christmas seasonal flavours and designed to take the chill off the coolest winter night. Ale Mary has a warm and sweet aroma of cloves, coriander and ginger. The palate provides touches of rum, raisins and sultanas, with a dry fruity finish. This ale has been exclusively brewed for us by Paul Davey of RCH Brewery.

MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2007
Bottle, 6.0% at KØ07. Spicy aroma with a little ginger. Hazy golden colour, very small head. Quite nice spicy flavour, again reminding me of ginger.

Benzai (15608) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2011
Decent taste, standard color, but I really don’t like the herbs or spices I smell. Also low body, low carbo. Not very good.

3.9
bhensonb (15194) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Spicy aroma. Definitely ginger. Medium amber color with shards of lacing from a minimal head. Starts spicy. Ginger and coriander. Some malt, followed by dark fruit -raisin? Hard to define the finish. I suppose the spice complements the hop. Ginger all the way. Quite a complex thing.

3.6
imdownthepub (14554) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2006
Bottle Conditioned, 500ml. Blood orange colou with lasting and heavy head. Substantial spicy aroma right from the off and initially a very spicy brew, cloves and ginger to the fore. But it does settle downto a pleasant sipping beer, Christmas Ale in character. Fortunately I had plenty of time to drink this because is not one for rushing through. Decent alcohol on the finish. Enjoyable.

3.5
Tmoney99 (14486) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle at 48 F. Poured clear brown with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet spicy hoppy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium sweet spicy flavor with a medium smooth bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

HenrikSoegaard (14176) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
Sample at CBF12. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Moderate malty and light hopy aroma. Spicey cinnamon notes. Moderate bitter flaor. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate.

2.6
argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Huge beige head atop a hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, ginger, nutmeg, tea. Taste is just what the aroma suggests, some tartness. Light-medium body. It is what it is, it’s just that it isn’t anything that I particularly enjoy.

3.5
Stuu666 (13399) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours copper amber, nose is fruity, ginger, taste is spiced, sweet, little thin.

2.7
bierkoning (13352) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2007
Bottle conditioned. Orange brown color. Vinous aroma with apple and ginger. Bitter flavor with coreander and ginger. Raisin. Long nutty bitter aftertaste. Not exactly my taste, but well made.

3.2
bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a copper body with a large beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, toffee, sour citrus, and berries. Flavor of raisins, fruit, toffee, breadiness, and spices.
