chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Cask (handpump) at Brodies festival, King William IV, Leyton on 8 April 2012. Very dark tawny. Thin beige head. Slightly smoky aroma. Dark bitter chocolate. Not at all sweet. Slightly stewed "groundy" coffee really comes through - sort of Greek/Turkish coffee feel. Chilli is pleasantly subtle - didn’t really pick it out too clearly until it was revealed as the secret ingredient.

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Cask at King William IV, London. Pours clear brown with a faint, foamy head. Some potent roasty malts in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with loads of chocolate, roasty malts, dry and earthy coffee. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish with a light booze note, true coffee character, cocoa, and some dirt. Lasting bittersweet mocha. Quite a robust beer.

8th April 2012
At the Brewpub. Opaque brown - black beer, little pale tan head. Softish palate. Rich dark malts but not roasty or bitter but there is a spiceyness to it. Sublte coffee and dark chocolate - cream. Not sure is there is secret ingredient here - this comes across like a particularly spicy rye porter. Dry finish with more spice. (After this rating James Brodie revealed that this beer had been brewed with a few chilli peppers).
