Anyone for Caribbean Chocolate Cake?

CCCPNGIt's been a long time coming! After a couple of month's worth of teasing (sorry about that), we're ready to get Caribbean Chocolate Cake into Keg, Cask and Bottle for the end of the month. For those that didn't get to try it the first time around, Caribbean Chocolate Cake is an indulgent collaboration with Cigar City Brewing - a dense, rich and luxurious stout. Hand-roasted cacao nibs from the USA give hints of tamarind and soft lemon. The malt provides coffee and chocolate notes in abundance, while the hop profile offers orange, chocolate and coconut flavours. Ageing on Cypress Wood is the icing on the cake. Pure bottled indulgence. We've also made some investment this year in new equipment that allows us to get even more impact and flavour from the Cypress Wood spirals, so we think it's an even better beer this time out. We're delighted to announce a series of launch events to celebrate the return of one of our favourite beers:
Saturday 31st October - Our Tap Room, Berkshire The first place you'll be able to enjoy Caribbean Chocolate Cake this year is our Tap Room in Finchampstead. From 10am on Saturday 31st October we'll have CCC on keg along with bottles to take away. If you're planning on visiting in a large group please contact us in advance so we can help you out with food and space on the day. We hope to see you there! Alternatively you can also buy online from Saturday 31st October.
