Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Clear, very dark red. Messy, sticky, lasting, thin, tan head. Dark chocolate. Dark, roast malts. Bit of a lactic sweetness. Trace of grapefruit hop. Taste is full on roast bitter. Some charred wood. Plenty of body. Not chewy, though. Long lasting, woody, full on bitter finish. Less hop punch than I might have expected, but really tasty. Smooth, and easy drinking, too.

Keg at Spit/Fire. Creamy and dark - too dark in the bar to see true colour! Spiced- up hop and malts, a wee dunt of choccy coffee which gives a nice friendly Chinese burn after it’s got your confidence. From there on we were friends, and by the end I was nestled into its velvet nether regions whispering something about love at first taste. A contender.
