A special beer brewed for the festive season. This dark rich malty ale blended with fine port is the perfect accompaniment to Christmas Pudding and guarantees the imbiber will play no further part in the festivities other than emitting gently snoring sounds during the Queens speech.
Ingredients: Pale pearl malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, wheat malt. Goldings and Challenger hops. Port.

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2006
A dark, chocolate brown beer with a thick beige head. The nose is distinctly sweet, and malty, with caramel hints, and an aroma similar to sherry. The initial mouthfeel is dry and fizzy! The taste is of bittersweet caramel and malt, with a slight grapey dryness in the aftertaste. (Bottle - purchased from The Beers of Europe, Setchey, Norfolk).

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 26, 2004
Bottled. Dark brown with thick light brown head. Dark full roasted flavours which are subtle, yet full and complex. This was by far the best behaved and nicest of the wolf that Iíve had. Everything comes at the end. Carmel, hoppy flavour with chocolate and vanilla.

SilkTork (5667) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 Bottle Conditioned. Same as Timber Wolf but with port. Adds a richer, sweeter quality to both aroma and - to a lesser extent - the flavour. [3.4]
And again... White Cliffs Winter Ales Fest. Gravity. Excellent. Subtle and complex flavours. A winner. [3.8]

leaparsons (10304) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2003
The previous review has it spot on - black grape skins are the over riding flavour. Fruity and dry this is decent but let down by it being a little cloying.

rauchbier (3856) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2003
Bottle Conditioned. Deep ruby red, good fluffy head but slight over condition. Plastic aroma gives way to overripe grapeskins presumably from the bottle of port stuck in every firkin. The port is very obvious in the fruity body, but seems to mask other flavours. Finish is dry, fruity and short with surprisingly little alcohol apparent
