This was a suprising beer. Pours and smells like any decent stout, nothing off the wall but solid appearance and a hint of coffee. The taste however, is another story. Itīs a big mix of coffee bean, vanilla and a charred ash kind of flavour that is right on the line of "do i like it/hate it....but in the end love it" I didnīt notice any chilli or heat until it warmed up a little and even then itīs very mild. Great beer, happy to have ticked it but it goes straight back on my wants list again now.

Bottle at Churchkey courtesy of me! Thanks. Bottle suggested by Eric. Seemed to fit in with the Ales from the Darkside theme at one of CK’s frequent events. Poured into 8 shot glasses and shared around. Color of 10W/40. Aroma of fruity burnt espresso. Taste is big woody, tannic burnt coffee with a subtle edge of pepper. Decent. Big.
