The reassuring clippity-clop of your horse’s footsteps suddenly fades with the falling of night, and apprehension is the emotion you feel creeping up your spine like the solitary trumpet vine crawling along the vaulted arches and broken outline of the lost abbey.  But do not fear the darkness that falls with the dusk upon this secluded, wooded glen, for the benevolent spirits of a past age still linger in this place like the haunting presence of this dark ale in the chalice before you, which effervesces through this silken beauty to release a melange of flavors, like caramel and plums, raisins and spice, and a benevolent kiss of chocolate.  So take another sip of this heavenly brew and feel its grace fill your soul, for your spirit takes flight as this celestial brew carries you away on your dark horse….
