What do you want for Christmas?
I’d like a deliciously rich dark glass of beer please that leaves me satisfied and festive.
This isn’t it.
This is simply Alice Porter with some added spice, and it’s nowhere near as good as it ought to be.
Alice is a great beer.
Adding cocoa, cloves and a dash of chilli doesn’t add anything whatsoever.
You can barely taste the added ingredients, but they’re there just enough to distract from all the lovely porter flavours.
Not good at all.
Leave poor Alice alone.
