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.

Nische (898) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2013
Draught @ Akkurat. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, honey and some chili. Taste is coffee, chocolate, honey and a subtle but very pleasant chili tone. Very good one!

@Akkurat: lätt rostad doft. Fin, fyllig smak med tydlig chilihetta i eftersmaken utan att ta över. Annars har den fina toner av rostat kaffe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
Draught at Söder om Småland, Malmö, listed at 7.6% ABV
Black color with beige creamy head. Strong aroma of dark bread and some chocolate, cream; nice. Lean and smooth body; quite strong roasted malt flavor, dark chocolate, some lactose, faint chili touch, correct bitterness. More roastiness in the final.
Not a bad beer, but concocted to appear old.

_angst_ (3048) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2013
Draught @ The Rover. Pours hazy black with a frothy and bubbly gray head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is malty, tiny fruity and spicy hot with roasted malts, red chili, green pepper, pine needles, grass, dark roast coffee, resinous wood and grapefruit rinds. Taste is bitter, malty and spicy with roasted malts, black pepper corns, red chili. dark roast coffee, grapefruit juice, grass and resinous wood. Mouthfeel is round, slightly astringent, slightly spicy hot and medium bodied. Finish is slightly bitter, malty and spicy with roasted malts, red chili, grass, pine needles and grapefruit rinds. Quite OK...

Aroma is dark, tobacco and some smoke. Taste is well balanced heat, not at all in the style of hot beers, much better! Still I guess chili beers aren’t my cup of tea.

Melker (218) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2013
Riktigt mörk bärs, nästan svart. Medelstort skum. Lite svart IPA ungefär. Rostad malt blandat med fruktig humle. Chillin kom på slutet och var ganska skarp på tungan. Jag tycker inte att chilli är någon höjdare annars men detta blev helt okej.

nool (12) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2013
Draught, 30 cl glass. I thought this would be a love or hate beer, but it left me sitting quite indifferently on the fence. Interesting to have tried it and I did enjoy it, but not something I would necessarily order again. The chili really sneaks up on you, and at the end of the glass, that’s all you remember.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle@Home. Chocolate and laurel aroma. Black, brown head, good lace. Light sweet, light milky, chocolate, some laurel, definitely chili. Velvet mouth feel. Flavourful, balanced, yet still pretty hot.

Anstai (1) - - JUN 13, 2013 does not count
Exactly what I was hoping for. The chilli came slowly and took over just enough of my taste buds to make it delicious.

TheJestersBeer (2136) - 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)
