I was in Rome recently, visiting from Edinburgh, Scotland and was able
to drink a beer called "Devil's Kiss Strong Ale". It is sold in
draught form in bars and in bottles. Both the bar font badge and
bottle label are red bearing a picture of a castle flanked by two
tridents bearing the name of the beer as described above and following
information "ALC. 7.0% VOL John Calder & Sons Alloa Scotland" and
"Imported from Scotland". The label on back of bottle bears the
information that this beer is produced in Scotland by John Calder &
Sons, Alloa, FK10 2AL.

Question - Where can I buy this beer either in a shop or mail order. I
live in Edniburgh.
There is no answer at this time.

Dear jazzpuppy-ga 
I have had no luck with finding this particular beer. This is what I
have found so far. A search on the beer?s name found references to The
Rose Street Brewery, Edinburgh.
I telephoned them and the person I spoke to had no knowledge of the
beer. Perhaps a personal visit may illicit some further information.
The Rose Street Brewery, Edinburgh
Address: 55-57 Rose Street, Edinburgh, Midlothian, EH2 2NH
Tel: 0131 220 1227

He referred me onto The Bow Bar (you may know it as a real ale pub).
The guy there was helpful but had never heard of the beer. He looked
the name up in a real ale directory but the name did not appear there.

The Bow Bar, 80 West Bow (halfway down Victoria St), Tel: 2267667. 

No BT telephone listing for John Calder & Sons, Alloa. 

A search on the post code revealed that at the post code is a
distribution deport for Tetley/Carlsberg. I called the number which
transferred me to their customer help line 08457 820820. The customer
enquiry agent asked at the depot and was informed it was a
discontinued product code (quite old) but he was unable to give any
information on whether it is brewed elsewhere.

Perhaps another researcher may be more successful.

Dear jazzpuppy,

I have checked the British patent office`s database for the owner of
the trademark "Devil`s Kiss". It is a bit surprising that the Danish
Carlsberg brewery is the company behind this beer:


List of goods and/or services: Beers (...)

Proprietor: Carlsberg International AS
            Vesterfaelledvej 100,DK 1799,Copenhagen,Denmark

However, it seems to be made for export only: Most references I found
came from Italian websites. Neither the Danish Carlsberg website nor
the site of Carlsberg-Tetley mention this particular beer.
