COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned; Special.
Local chilli’s from the Upton Cheney Chilli Farm have infused our rich chocolate stout with a subtle amount of chilli aroma & a pleasent warming aftertaste. The fruitburst habanero chilli gives a big hot kick, so we have been careful to use it respectfully. The chilli adds something different to the stout working well with the bitter chocolate flavour without overpowering the other flavours in the beer.

johndoughty (4077) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle. Black with a small head. Low carbonation with a gentle warmth. The chili content of this one worried me as its a flavour I do not like. But it was subtle and not overpowering. A pleasant surprise.

jackl (4932) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle at Scopey’s Pre-CBC tune-up. The beer pours deep brown with a small tan head. The nose is sweet chocolate cake frosting and deep fudge. You also get hints of chili pepper. The taste is much the same – plenty of lactose, and dark toasty chocolate. I don’t get nearly as much chili pepper flavor in the taste as I do the aroma. The beer’s full bodied and quite sweet. Overall, I found this a little unbalanced and boring. Some drier flavors would have balanced this out a bit, in my opinion.

Scopey (7396) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle at my Pre-CBC Tune-Up Tasting. It pours very dark brown, with a thin beige head. The nose is warming chilli pepper (but not overpowering), caramel and roasted malt. The taste is roasted malt, chilli pepper, caramel and chocolate, with some lingering spice in the finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Thankfully the chilli is pretty restrained. Not too bad at all.

ChrisOs Early December Tasting. Clear dark brown beer, small bubbly tan head. Light palate, semi dry. Sweetish dark malt. Just a mild chilli thing going on, not too much burn. Finishes light and semi dry. Mild sweet chocolate. Allright.
