BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2010
[500ml bottle (Titanic Christmas Ale), The Bottle, York] Where to start with this one? Great hopes reading the label tasting notes quickly vanished amidst an uncomfortably bitter beer. Almost a lambic-like sharpness, overwhelming flavours of blood orange and grapefruit, some cinnamon but really nothing good at all to recommend it. Either ours was off (although it had a two year shelf-life), or it was extremely badly balanced. Doesnt really matter, Ill not be trying another [17122010]

imdownthepub (14221) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 500ml, from York Beer & Wine. Clouded red brown with slight head. To be fair, it was a bit of a wreckage this one. Fruity, spiced, nutty with some roastiness but a bit of a miss match with flavours at angles to the body of the beer. Having said that its quite drinkable and full.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2010
BC, 7.6%, Beers of Advent day 5. Dark ruby with a slender cappuccino collar. Juicy mulled orange, berries, apple strudel aroma with a hint of Flemish sour and cinder toffee as it warms. Fine and syrupy with a suggestion of oak, lots of mulled berries and orange peel swimming about, earthy apple peel yeast, the glow of alcohol and a balanced malty aftertaste cushioning the heat and finishing bitterness. Quite acidic and yeasty; a sprinkle of cinnamon, but not overdone. Good, but had to share- a whole bottle would be a struggle.

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle. A clear, reddish brown beer with a small beige head. The aroma has some spices, with dried fruits, roasted notes, caramel and a little sourish note. Its too sourish in the mouth, with caramel, some spiced notes and a touch of bitterness. Medium to full body. Dried fruits, some roasted malts and spiced in the finish. Far from impressive, actually nothing more than half-good. 101105

oh6gdx (26414) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2010
Bottled (from Estate Wine, Holstebro). Ruby colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruits, raisins, some toffee, caramel malts and some mild fruity bitterness as well. Flavour is quite much the same. Mild spicyness as it warms up. Lovely balanced beer.

FatPhil (15563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2010
500ml bottle (Utobeer, London)
Deep red, brief head. Sweet chocolat cakey aroma, plenty of treacly sweetness. Sweet smooth palate, carbonation pleasant. Big bold sweet taste packed with roasted malts, and with a really burnt bitter bite. Definitely a spicy bent, but not in an overpowering or gimmicky way. Alcohol well covered. Finish pleasantly bitter, not just hoppy, but also burnt.
