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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
