IanAcceptable15 Jan 2010 Great condition, really well served, but too much dry mixed spice for me.

BrianNot Tried19 Dec 2009 As I'd had this the night before I decided on a bottle of the Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA which was too gorgeous....
BrianExcellent18 Dec 2009 Turns out the sweet taste that I couldn't identify is coriander. Really nice this, lightish body with a strong bitter finish.
BrianExcellent12 Dec 2009 I expected a really dark winter ale, but this is mid brown in colour and quite light really. A really strange sweet taste that I couldn't place, something like sherbert or cherry drops maybe. Still excellent whatever it was.
