A delicious winter warmer. A not too thick dark ale with a nice hoppy center with an xtra alcohol kick to warm you up when it is snowing in late March. And in the burgh...it is snowing in late March.
With it's lighter viscosity than a Guinness or other heavy porters and stouts,it can be an enjoyable brew for even those that steer away from the standard dark ale.

On cask at the Piper pub the other day.
The beer pours fairly dark, reddish brown color with surprisingly good head retention and lacing. The nose is attraactive as well, as I pick up considerable sweet malt, toffee, tea, light smoke and hint of ginger. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this easy drinking, moderately sweet beer. Mouthfeel if medium bodied, with a soft, slightly creamy finish. I really think the cask conditioning works well with this beer. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and so drinkability is pretty high.
Really enjoyed this well made beer from East End.

A-dark brown with a thin cream colored head
S-faint scent of smoky malts and peppercorn. Really faint.
T-comes in with a flavor of hops, black peppercorn, dark malts, and some cocoa? It's an odd mix. After-taste is heavier on a chalky cocoa taste with some peppercorn. It's pretty good.
M-heavy chalky mouthfeel. I like it.
O-really unique winter warmer. I like it. I can always expect something good from East End. I really wish I had more access to their beers. This has a great mouthfeel to it, and the flavor profile seems to shift with every sip I take.
Serving type: on-tap
