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.

Bottle. Almomst black in colour with a decent, tan head. Aroma of bitter chocolate with a hint of warmth and roastiness. Flavour had plenty more chocolate, with some prickly chilli warmth kicking in at the finish. Subtle and enjoyable.

Bottle at home. Pours black, thin tan head. Bit grassy on the aroma, but with distinct chocolate, vanilla and cream. Flavours of nice stouty chocolate, but the chocolate is more in the (pleasantly fizzy) palate. A real grower.

Bottle at home. Dark reddish brown, thin tan head. Mild capsicum, chilli becomes more pronounced later, dark chocolate nose. Chocolate front, slight lactose streak, warm chilli in the finish along with dusty roast malts. Nice.

Bottle at home shared with my dad 20.12.11 ordered direct from Bristol Beer Factory. Pours black with a light beige head, another good looker. The chilli is far more subtle than I was expecting having had a look at some of the ratings, in fact it works very well here. This is warming and chocolatey, quite thick in the mouth, smooth and creamy and heading towards being indulgent, it’s lovely. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

[500ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk, as part of ’12 stouts of Christmas’] Black pour, decent tan head. Chilli on the nose, along with capsicum pepper. On the taste, chocolate at first, then mild rising chilli. Not really strong, the chilli heat is always in the background. Bitter, slightly sharp, dry finish. More pepper. Some chilli beers are completely OTT, but this one has it just about perfect [20122011]

Bottle at home as part of my 12 stout of christmas tasting ... deep brown black ... dark roast roast malts ... light hint of chilli nose ... light malt roast ... little thin in body ... soft chocolate roast with the chilli shining through ... little capsicum ... nice but its lack of body destroys what could be a wonderful beer

12 stouts of Christmas tasting with Craig and Rich. Pours a dark brown colour with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of a little chilli, chocolate, alcohol, roasty malt and caramel. Similar flavours and just a little thin. Mild carbonation and a really nutty finish which isn’t for me.

Bottled at oh6gdx’s birthday bash at chriso’s. Dark black, small head. Aroma of dark chocolate with the slightest dash of coffee. Medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Cocoa flavour with very slight chilli tingle. Mid bitter finish without the burn usually ruining the drinkability in chilli beers.
