    Normally takes 10-14 days for hardywood's stuff to hit the shelves after their release parties just fyi, but you can always swing by their brewery if you're in search of stuff. Cheers!

    Ahh ok, I'm gonna be driving back next Sunday and I don't think they are open that day. It's all good I'll just stop and pick up some other locals. Unless someone wants to get a couple bottles for me and we can do an IP trade that day

    I enjoyed it thoroughly! Quite spicy, smoky, relatively thin for a stout, and unlike any other beer I've had. The base seems similar to Sidamo honestly, but I did speak with one of the Hardywood guys who assured me that there is lactose in the Chocolate Heat - he mentioned that it may become more evident with a bit of age; it is obviously very fresh at present. I would recommend checking it out. Good time at the release today too. Cheers!

    I have plenty of bottles of Choc Heat and Sidamo for anyone wanting to set up a trade, just BM me with offers.
