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.

caesar (6303) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Bottled, medium sample. Dark brown color, short frothy head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark bread. Bit malty bitter in taste, slight chili burn. Beer itself is a bit watery, lacks body, but the balance with the peppers is good. They give a soft spicy touch to it without overpowering the beer.

Idiosynkrasie (5875) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2014
330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Fruity, dark malty aroma with a smoky touch, a peppery chili note causes a minimal prick in the nose, some dark chocolate. Taste is dry dark malty, slightly roasty, a peppery chili note, dark chocolate, cautious hints of red berries; the chili adds up to a constant, lasting prickling note, lively carbonation. I like the adding of chili.

sebletitje (8663) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 29, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de HopDuvel, batch 13.02, BB 22.05.2014. Ambrée tirant sur le brun, col épais café au lait. Arôme est malté, caramel, pâle avec une fine effluve lactose. Chocolat au lait. L’épice se manifeste nettement plus au fur et à mesure de dégustation. Palais alterne le houblonné agrumes, pointes d’épice et avec un caramel très allemand. Notes agréable d’agrumes avec un profil restant malté chocolaté. Le piment vient en retrait et réchauffe le palais et ce dernier est nettement plus mis en avant en bouche que à l’arôme.

JorisPPattyn (9085) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 25, 2014
Good thick, dense dark cream head over unclear deep redbrown to black beer. Dark malts, chocolate, mole, fresh herbs, cocoa powder, black cardemome, dry hops. Dry, cocoapowder, spicy, herbal; some sweetness and again dry hops. Heat, peppery, chillies arrive more in the MF/aftertaste, leaving a hot feeling, thankfully not overdone. Titillating carbonation, soon overcome by the bone-dry character; medium bodied. Still a beer - difficult to achieve with chilipepper addition. Good, and indeed with a kick.

yngwie (16248) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. A really dark brown one, looking unclear, and with a dense, finger-thick dark beige head. The aroma has some herbal chili notes, with roasted malts, coffee and some dark chocolate. There’s some chili burn on the palate, but not much. Full body, semi-dry and with a nice carbonation level. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and some chili in the flavor. Lasting roasted finish with chili, coffee and roasted malts. A really balanced chili stout that I could have several times. 140118
