Panther Brewery Festive Panther
From Norfolk-based, 2010 upstarts, Panther Brewery comes this 4.5% dark ale with mulled spice. It's bottled conditioned also, giving you a yeasty woody tang that's almost Belgian dark strong ale but without the alcohol. Prickly mulled spice, liquorice and dark chocolate are the highlights here and there seems to be a lot of bitter, yeast and spice going on over the darker grains. Overall a full flavoured beer with a bit of a bite to it.
