Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
First developed for Bonfire Night 2011, this stout has a warming chilli afterglow. It aims to have just enough chilli to produce a pleasant aftertaste, without having so much that it will have you dashing for some water to put the fire out on your tongue!

BeerViking (2498) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Cask at the Magpie, choc nose with a spicy hint, notable choc flavours segue into a winey note and then as it becomes just a tad watery, a tingly chilli burn.

The taste is mellow roast, earth, light spice, treacle, meat, light bitterness with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Not as bad as you might think. Fine.

On cask at the Old Silk Mill
If Short’s were to get into the English cask ale business this is the sort of thing I imagine they would put out there. Smelling and tasting exactly like a pot of chilli with Oscar Meyer hot dogs thrown in this more of an experiment than a proper beer.

Aroma / Appearance - The fluid black base is safe to look at but the strangeness begins with the aroma. Hot dogs cooking in a crock pot mix with coffee and molasses in a combination that is hard to describe without experiencing.

Flavor / Palate - Spicy hot dogs with a generous spread of mustard aggressively hit the palate mere seconds after the first sip. The oddness does not change over time - this has no depth beyond being a basic novelty. On the plus side I did at least get a new county tick out of the deal.
