COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

madsberg (11798) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Bottled. Amber coloured. Clear. Dense light brown head. Sweet and fruity aroma with notes of berries and spice. Flavour of berries, spice, sweetness and herbs. Medium bodied. Herbal and sweet bitterness in the end. Quite nice.

ManVsBeer (11079) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Brownish-red in colour with a creamy head. Always with a strength, there’s some robust malts in its nose, with hints of fruit in its nose. It’s mildly tropical fruit is more evident in its taste.

leaparsons (10859) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 As Titanic Christmas Ale. Bottle conditioned. Brewed in 2004, bottled in 2005 (according to the label). Deep mahogony in colour, no head. Aromas are winter fruit with tobacco and a fair amount of smokiness. Also, mollasses and mellow berries. Flavours are soft berries with medicinal, herbal notes. Has a sweet, dark syrup base, mollasses with some earthy woodiness. Sweet, spicy and herbal on the finish. It certainly tastes Xmassy. Quite mouth numbing in its alcohol - or warming. Pretty good.

jmgreenuk (10322) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 18, 2015
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is sweet malt and alcohol. The flavour is strong bitter with a rich sweet treacle toffee pudding, over ripe fruit, light spice, resin hop bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. The hoppy bitterness combined with the alcohol really doesn’t work for me. Not the best beer I’ve had from Titanic.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2010
It’s hazy, beautiful red mahogany with a creamy head and the aroma has notes of malt, caramel and tart berries. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of malt, citrus, slightly tart berries, caramel and the finish is rather dry, probably because of the cinnamon, that I do not find as a note. The aftertaste is long.

downender (9003) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
On gravity at the Tewkesbury winter beer festival, 7/2/2014. Deep, reddish-amber with a slight, off-white head. Citrus hops, tangerines, mincemeat, cinnamon and a warming finish. Excellent.

Svesse (8921) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2013
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 22 Nov 2013) Dark reddish amber colour with brief, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit, orange peel and a touch of cinnamon. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, dried fruit, orange peel, citrus, hints of cinnamon and a sweet, vinous finish with a generous spicy bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Complex, tasty and quite strong, but still in excellent balance. Lovely beer!

2.9
RichTheVillan (8443) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Cask at the Wellington; clear chestnut pour with a creamy magnolia head, dark fruit and acidic aroma, taste has light winter spices along with dark fruits, very mince pie, doesn’t work in a warm September.
