Give in to the Prince of Darkness and drown your senses with this wickedly assertive ale. Rich, strong and complex, this is a bold beer for special occasions and a devil-may-care spirit.

Big sister to our Temptress chocolate porter. Mature. Well built. An experienced mix of vanilla, dutch cocoa and locally roaster coffee beans. Not to be taken lightly.

Like a plump monk with a taste for the finer things, this not-so-traditional ale leaps from the middle ages to the 21st century with a double helping of dense, punchy flavours that will fortify your soul.

While cranking out our everyday beers, hoppy sensations or traditional styles, the Holgate brew-team dream up methods, styles and interpretation for our Special Reserve series – occasion beers, with character, depth of flavour, often designed for longevity and with alternative techniques and ingredients. These beers are brewed once per year, often in small discreet batches….. more for brewers pleasure than commercial sales.

We make it ourselves, microbrewed from authentic, natural ingredients. Uncompromising craft beer, bold and brimming with character.
