Beer Advent Calendar - Day Five

Today's festive ale is the Teignworthy Christmas Cracker, a strong (6% ABV) dark and warming malty bottle conditioned ale from deepest Devon.
Um, it's OK, certainly tastes weighty and, well, worthy, but it isn't really to my taste - it has a very strong aftertaste yet is lacking in any interesting fruity flavours.  There are plenty of other things I'd rather drink before picking this.

Jocelyn says: "Damn, I've dripped it on my top, I'll have to wash this now."
