I’m afraid to say that this is a bit of a mess.
You can see what Backyard are trying to do, but what you get is a big blob of almost indistinguishable beer flab.
What I think Bad Santa is trying to be is a strong dark, liquorice and rum fuelled winter warmer to make your cheeks glow.
But what you actually get is an unpleasantly gloopy toffee and cabbage, sprouts and dishwater monster with a tongue stinging alcohol burn and a lack of depth that makes Bad Santa a beer that went down the sink.
