3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark clear mahogany body, small offwhite head. Aroma has some nutty malt, raisins and chilli tickle. Flavour has sharp chilli burn in back of the throat. Some dark maltiness and bit veggies. Chilli burns quite a long time. Strange feeling for beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. 060513. BBE May/2014. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Dark copper colour with a small greyish white head.
Sweet malt, milk chocolate, dried fruits and mild vegetables in the aroma.
Tickles in the nose a bit. The flavour is dry malt, wood, chocolate sweetness and some bitterness. Warms a lot. Thereís no chili flavour but itís warming... so itís definitely there. Quite peculiar chili beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Wonderful, totally clear, ruby red colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, sulphur-yellowish head. Caramel malty aroma has notes of red berries, dried red fruit, adumbrated chilli notes. Taste is initially minimally sweet fruity, hints of red berries, dry hoppy overtones, in the finish appear slightly hot, peppery chilli notes; extremely smooth, soft palate. The addition of chillis is neither advantage nor damage.

500ml Bottle - Hazy copper. Drie fruit, malt and chilli in the aroma. Malty and very spicy taste with notes of leather, dried fruit and a warming finish. The chilli taste lingers for a long time.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ Fenwick, Newcastle.
Appearance - Massive large head that quickly dissipate to nothing. Apperance of flat chestnut brown tea. Poor.
Aroma - Caramel malts....chilli heat...some fruity esters...no hops.
Taste - Caramel malt....fruity malt...hint of earthy hops...chilli...bit of smoke.
Palate - Sweet malts then big chilli burn finish. Simple. Almost no carbonation. Thin mouthfeel.
Overall - Just a novelty beer and not a good one. A substandard thin malty beer with lots of chilli. Thatís it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice tasting unique beer. As with other comments the main taste of the beer comes across as watery but has a nice taste to it. The chilli hits the back of the throat which is rather pleasant.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ 3 Judges. Dark copper colour, off-white head. Aroma is bread. Flavour is bready, mild chili, malty, luckily soft on palate. Still quite unpleasant. Dry and bready finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Hotel du Vin, Birmingham. Red to amber with no head. Quite thin on the palate, but the spicy heat definitely comes through which is a bit weird for beer. Once that is in the mouth nothing else comes through.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, Rehills, Newcastle. Little in the way of aroma, but a pleasant enough spicy tingle, that lingers gently on the throat. Not much else to the beer, unfortunately, I found it a bit thin and watery. I go along with the earthy description, but would almost veer into musty. Russett brown appearance, thin, off-white head. A bit disappointing.
