There's a series of TV ads in the UK that's been running for decades with the tagline: "It does exactly what it says on the tin." It could equally apply to Bright's winter warmer, which comes complete with a seriously thick mouthfeel and a fiercely dark brown head. They serve as an omen of what's to come: big mocha aromas with a touch of dark fruit and alcohol, which make way for a palate-smothering wave of rich chocolate, a roast coffee hit and a bitter finish. Get it before it's gone.
