From Wytchwood Brewery Co. - Witney, Oxfordshire England

So let us delve into the Mystery of this most tempting creature!

This one opens with a soft hiss of black cat that is followed by a wisp of escaping mysterious vapours that waft up and then about the container's curved neck.

A tentative whiff of the open vessel produces teasing hints of dark things!

But now to release the potion to it's new home in the one pint glass tumbler.
Pouring out with a deep chocolate colour she produces a swelling head of deep creamy froth that stays for only a minute or two and vanishes into the trace of something which was once corporeal and now become a phantom.
To the nose ..... taking hearty draughts of the growing vapours that emerge, the heady perfumes are complex and require some sampling and thought to divine.

There are flowers from a night garden, something deeply roasted and coated with burnt sugars and exotic oils. A heady and intoxicating miasma that holds some primal memory of things of the warm and loving earth, from the gardens, forests and perhaps a peat hearth in a woodland cottage built on a forest floor of millenia old oak and moss, a tantalizing musk. A temptress!

To the lips now we bring our enchanting essence and there is only more wonder to experience.
Dark promises of bitter yet tantalizing pleasures are delivered on. A burst of wonder like coffee and herbs with sweetness only implied by some undefined and unknowable thing that lurks in the background. Smothered in rich cream this potion passes over the tongue and enchants the palate.

Yes there's definitely magic in this brew!
Not for those who fear the dark or tremble in the face of the unknown but a reward for the bold adventurer. Those who dare to risk being bound in the spell of the earth.
