COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our black ale has a bit of a kick. We add dried red chillies to the fermenter for a hint of fruit, and to create a dry, spicy finish.

TheJestersBeer (1930) - SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2013
Draught @ BrewDog Stockholm. Pours almost totally black, with a brown head. Spicy, hoppy aroma, roasted malt, chili peppers, licorice, coffee, smoke. Dry, medium to full bodied, mid to high bitterness, balanced CO2. Spicy, hoppy taste, chili, roasted malt, slightly yeasty, coffee, licorice. Quite decent. Contrary to what others seem to think, I found the chili heat quite well balanced in the overall impression of the beer. (2013-06-12)

mzaar (1366) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2013
Fat @ Ölrepubliken, Göteborg. Svart öl med smutsvitt skum. Doftar lakrits, soja, choklad och citrus. I smaken kommer först choklad, lakrits, röda bär och (svagt) kaffe. Sen... Sen kommer chillin. Markerar sin närvaro i strupen och ropar "hallå, hade du glömt bort mig". Spännande. Inte en öl jag dricker mer än en av på en och samma dag, men jag njuter mycket av de 30 cl som jag har i mitt glas.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2013
Draught at BrewDog Bar, Stockholm. Near black, small head. Aroma of chocolate and chili. Sweetish with clean, rounded mouthfeel and medium body. Habanero chili dominates completely. Unbalanced and unbalanced. Mostly habanero burn. I like chili, and I like beer. If you want to drink a good chili stout, turn to Calavera Mexican Imperial Stout instead.

bierkoning (9822) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Roast and a hint of chili in the aroma and flavor. Just a bit thin. Soft pepper burn in the aftertaste, slowly but steadily getting stronger. Apple syrup. Licorice. Satisfyingly balanced.

SaintMatty (4680) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2013
330ml Bottle (Ölrepubliken, Göteborg) - Black in colour. Roasted and smoky aroma with notes of liquorice and chilli. Plain chocolate, liquorice and chilli all feature in the taste. The chill becomes more evident in the finish and leaves a warming sensation at the back of the throat.
