Naylor’s Brewery Santa’s Dark Side [Advent Booze Calendar: 20 Days Till Xmas]   2 comments

naylor's brewery santa's dark side at fork handles

After a late day at work and in need of shelter for the wait for the bus, I popped into the Fork Handles for a Christmas brew.  There were two but I thought the Santa’s Dark Side fit my mood, best.

Overall:  No more believable as an ale than Santa’s good side is as an explanation for the horrors of Christmas Past.

Colour:  Coal-infused ruby.

Aroma: Burnt cigarette filter tip. Viceroy’s, specifically.

Mouth: Thin-to-medium body but with a frothy collar that promised more than it delivered.

Flavour: Berries and quinine with a burnt oak maltiness and no chocolate, at all.

Yesterday’s entry here.
