Lonick (790) - Edinburgh, - JAN 26, 2012
All things sugar and spice also nice. A sweetish porter with a mixed all-spice kick. A drink for all seasons and nights but made for a snowy evening with an open fire.

Cask at the CP&K, Pimliwhere, 29/12/14. Light black with a moderate tan covering. Nose is rostedmalt, toffee, light charr, faint germaline. Taste comprises molasses, green pepper, very subtle chilli, dark toffee, light charr, pinch of spice. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. Ok, very little chilli kick, probably a good thing!

ladnewton (1597) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden on 20th December 2014. Sepia black with thin pale tan laceless ring of foam. Richly roasty aroma with spices. Roasty in-mouth with citric touch and evident chilli which then dominates the finish albeit roundedly. Roasty mallts continue. Medium body, and an engaging texture.

Scopey (8820) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2014
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Holborn. it pours deep red-brown with a decent light tan head. The nose is malt-driven, earth, toast, wood, cocoa and light peppery chilli. The taste is bitter upfront, then wood, pine, varnish, resin, cocoa, toast, chilli pepper kick, caramel and leather with a dry, light chilli linger. Medium body and fine carbonation. Really great balance here. The chilli adds something to the party without overtaking the base beer. Tasty.

allmyvinyl (6051) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Cask at The Haymarket. Dark brown pour, thin tan head. Aromas are vegetal and chocolate malt. Taste has a good heat which builds as you drink, but never too much. Liquorice and more chocolate stay in the background. Very nice.

stravale (2478) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 25, 2013
Cask at Blue Blazer [230113]. Dark brown, bubbly tan head, not much lacing. Nose of roasted malt, quite earthy dark malts, slight vegatal, some chilli heat. Taste of dark roasted malts with quite a lot of chocolate, some fruitiness in there, plenty of chiili - it isnít subtle and itís fairly hot, gets better the more you drink. Has a medium body, smooth and the finish has dark roast, chocolate with a chilli burn linger - hot but not too much. Seemed disjointed at first until I got used to the heat - liked the smooth dark chocolate underneath the chiili.

AshtonMcCobb (3764) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2013
On tap @ the Stockbridge Tap. Pours opaque black with a decent head. The nose has burnt chocolate and just a hint of the capsicum. The taste has more of the chilli coming through and it builds as you go down the glass. The background taste is charcoal and liquorice which is expected since thatís the dry stout style of the Cauld Reekie on which this is based. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy texture and itís fairly refreshing despite the chilli. Overall, yes a good ale!

Cask at HW. Blackish with tan head. Aroma has toffee, caramel, hint of vanilla, wood, earthiness. Taste has light licorice, molasses, toffee, hint of chili. Quite flat and oily with a lingering spice.
