Cask conditioned at Egham Beer Fest #13. Very dark brown with slight head. Sharp, almost tart and fruity beer, this was sold as Camp & Spicy but we were informed that this was certainly Devil’s Dyke. However; I did get a Chilli note from it. Later there is a roasty bitterness. A really challenging beer.

Cask conditioned at The Victory, Brighton. Dark chestnut with slight cream head. In a way quite a thinnish, bitter Porter, quite different to many, but there is a decent hoppy note mixed with a dery caramel, certainly drinkable in its own right.
