This is a collaboration between Billericay Brewing Company and Dominion Brewery Company which I think is going to win the award for longest #12beersofxmas blog title.

A bit of a surge upon opening, it pours a very dark brown with a tan head, which did stop growing but remained for the rest of the drink.  Aromas of roast malts, toffee and oddly, cream.  Expiry is Jan 2015, crossed out and amended by hand to May 2015, which gave me a little chuckle as I thought of the person who was tasked with doing this correction.  The carbonation is low and it has a silky, smooth mouth feel, it drinks very much on the ground between a mild and a porter, nowhere near stout territory.

Minimum sediment, the roast, toffee and creamy smells carry over into the tasting, I’d say there is a subtle coffee hint too but there is also something else of which I’m not quite sure of.  Either way this is a very good drink, a triumph.

Happy Boxing Day…
