3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Smoky, dark malty aroma, hints of a peppery touch. Taste is smoky, dark malty, roasty, hints of bacon, later hot spicy peppery chili notes with the typical effect of intensening over time; carbonation palliates the chili partially. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 20.11.2013
Aroma has roasted notes, toffee typical to English ales and hints of hay. Flavour has some roasted notes, toffee and hints of hay. Thereís just the feeling of stinging chili, but almost no taste at all. And no signs of smoke either. But this is not bad still, the subtle burning of chili is actually nice here.

Warming chili, berries and roasted malt in the flavour. No smoky notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a white creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, motor oil, bread and pepper. Flavour of strong roasted malts, pepper, burning chili, wood and grass. Chili kicks in even more after a while. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, lingering, warming chili finish with some roastiness. Chili is rather well present but itís not overwhelming so it creates an interesting mixture. Nice one.
