3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Blue Blazer . 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 isn’t subtle and it’s 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.

Cask at The Bow Bar. Deep brown with lasting tan head. Thick texture. Velvety. Amazing malt to chilli balance. Sweet, malty. Slight spice in the throat. Very well measured.

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.

Had at Jolly Judge in Edinburgh. Great beer, similar to the Tempest Chipotle, though sadly a bit less ’’chili-y’. Nonetheless, if this was on regular cask rotation, I’d certainly drink it often.
