We believe we are the first British brewery to import a Belgian Trappiste yeast strain to make a Winter Warmer ale.
The Rochefort Abbey strain used to make their world famous dubbels and trippels has added another dimension of spice and fruit to the complex malt bill of our Dorset Cross beer. No expense was spared in this brew as we didn’t want to upset the Big Cheese.
It’s a very easy drinking and moreish ale despite the complex malt tones of toffee and hazelnuts. Aromatic malts are lifted by a spicy fruitiness. Almost like a drinkable Christmas pudding or mince pie.

On tap. Copper with small off white head. Aroma of raisins, plum, ripe fruit and dark malt. Taste is medium sweet,, a bit vinous, raisins and alcohol. Kind of heavy in the finish, not too pleasant.

Nov 2012 - draught. Not very nice. Sour milk start with a mild finish. Certainly wouldn’t have again.

Cask @ The Sheffield Tap (I think). The pour’s deep copper red with a tiny white head. The aroma’s of bruised red berry. General fruity esters. Some candi sugar and hints of mashed banana. The taste also ticks the boxes with Belgian buzzwords. A bit of christmas spice, yeast, sweet fruits. The finish has a surprisingly rough shaggy tobacco hop finish. Caramel and brown bread body. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Overall, a bit all over the place.

Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2013
(Draught at MacKinlay’s Inn, Stockholm) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of caramel, dark bread and raisins. Malty taste with dark bread, caramel, dried fruit and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and balanced Belgian style ale. Quite nice.

joergen (28164) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2013
Draught at Bishops Arms Gustav. Clear orange-red coloured with a small off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of hay, caramel and hops. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel and bread with notes of hops. Hoppy finish.

Grumbo (2950) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Cask gravity at CAMRA Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. A most enjoyable beer. Ruby brown, malty and a lovely balanced fruity/spicey aroma, with a hint of toffee. Approaching full bodied. Stand out beer of the festival for me, of the one’s I tried.
