500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD 22 Aug 14. Poured into a UK pint sleeve on 13 Dec 13 at home.

Clear mahogany body, thinning head of off-white/white head.

Malty nose with some pepper and wintery spice type notes.

The taste tags along with the aromas, malts firstly giving a semi-sweet flavour followed by that peppery, spicy feel from the smell: traces of caramel within the malty taste, but not overly sweet or spiced.

The body was equal to the alcohol and flavour depths: a well made and easy to drink Winter Ale.
