This sweet malty winter ale has a port-like aroma, oranges and lemons play around the edges of the tongue whilst dried fruit and cinnamon drive home the wonderful warming effect, the walnut aftertaste completes this slice of Christmas time in a glass.

Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, malt, and some nuts, leading to a dry finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

thewolf (12189) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2009
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Pours deep brown with a nice, small, creamy, yellowish head. Very sweet aroma with milky caramel, some grass, light nutty. Low carbonation, lovely oily mouthfeel. Flavour is slightly harsh actually. A little metallic. Some viniousness. Otherwise heavy on the caramel, nuttiness, lightly roasted notes and quite a heavy hoppy bitterness in the finish. A tad weird but fairly drinkable.

berkshirejohn (6172) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2009
50cl of Christmas Ale at 7.6% from Utobeer, Borough Market. A slightly hazy golden brown with a small and rapidly fading off-white head. Rich christmas cake aroma with glace fruit, brandy, port, raisins and caramel and just a hint of vanilla. Thick, oily, texture, with a luscious booze-soaked fruit cake flavour - with chunks of apricot and pineapple as well as raisins and sultanas. The finish is warming and port-like and covers the alcohol really well. Excellent, even though Christmas was five months ago.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle at the rake with mes, ian and chris. Alround rating: The cad pulls one out the bag with his super power exstreme memory that others can only marvel at. Big ruby malt character, rich fruit cake, a bit yeasty, no hops. Alround a good effort.

harrisoni (17474) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2009
500ml bottle at The Rake courtesy of MagicDave6. Ruby, thin white head. Its a bit syrupy, some red fruits. Not a great, even slightly farty aroma. Syrupy fruits in the mouth. In fact, too syrupy for me.
