500ml bottle best before 1 Jan 2013: poured into a UK pint sleeve on Christmas Eve 2012.

Front label claims it 'Warms yer Cockles': well it didn't do that but I did enjoy the beer.

Dark mahogany body with deep red highlights: on top a thin off-white covering of foam.

Malty molasses with an almost musty yeast presence in the nose: not unpleasant, but not right either.

The taste was malts first and foremost: semi-sweet and fruity feel to the flavours. The hops were just below the surface throughout the tasting and added a little bitterness to the overall taste. Well balanced if a little un-bold in the blending/brewing. Could have been so much better.
