On tap at the Rake. Cloudy brown beer, small pale tan head. Smooth palate, low carbonation. Fair bit of malt with subtle chocolate. Nice fruits on the back end but they clash a little with the bitter orange hop at the end. Very mild chilli. Mild bitter aftertaste. Interesting beer but could be a lot clearer and fresher.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Cask at the Rake - Borough Market, London. Decent offering. Pours clear, black-brown with a bubbly, off-white head. There’s some dark fruit sugars up front then a bit of chili burn in the follow-through. At times you also get some roasted malts and dry cocoa. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Chili spice in the finish with lightly offsetting chocolate tones. Fine for what it is.
