3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Many thanks to beerhunter111 for this 33cl bottle. Best before 03.2015. Smooth-malty beginning. Nice roasted, smooth. Heavy roasted malt, slightly dry body. The aftertaste is smooth malty with hints of spicy peppers. A nice fitting combination, but I’m not unhappy that the chilies are only very few. Long malty and heavily roasted aftertaste with hints of the chilies.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with quick fading head. Quite a strong flavoured beer. Dark malts and also a sweet nutty taste. Generally a sweet stout with just a light warming hint of chilli.

330ml bottle, shared between 5 at the Tenth Shrewsbury Bottle Share, Dec 14, brought by me, thanks to Benzai for the swap. Big malty, grainy aroma. Taste is molasses with a very subtle chili hit. Fairly weak but still some nice roasted flavours.

33cl bottle shared between five at the 8th December 2014 Shrewsbury Bottle Exchange Group meeting: cheers Mat for bringing this. Dark brown body with a tanned topping. Struggled to find any ’chilli’ worth mentioning, mild flavours throughout to be honest, malty and slightly chocolate in nature but a bit of a let down with the alcohol level not helping the beers cause too greatly either. A weak Porter in depth, flavour and alcohol: expected so much more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black with fast disappearing beige head that leaves some nice bubbles. Coffee and some licorice, dry spicy notes and some tart fruits (black berries) and some young walnuts. Don't really get much chili here, but overall a nice porter, quite dry and complex. Good stuff for 4% ABV.

Bottle. Dark body, medium creamy tan head. Aroma has dark chocolate, toasty nose, little bit of tabacco ash. Taste has high roasty bitterness, very little chilli in the after taste, almost not noticiable. Medium acidic sweetness in the finish. Body is medium, flat carbonation. The chilli is hidden.
