Nose is mostly expectable for something this black but then tad more modest with a hint of additional something, perhaps chili? ( I actually knew in advance about the spiciness anyway). I’d say this had almost enough hops for the smell but it did’t open up as much on contact, perhaps because of all the pepper getting in the way, followed by the usual medium ashtray and yes, some hops. Although it opens up slightly better towards the bottles end, this should be compared again to Texas Ranger.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear mahogany, beige thin head. Sweet musty choc, cayenne and charred roastedness. Burgeoning roastedness, chocolatey hops and building chilli vibe. Not a massive middle to this, zips to the chilli kick - with an odd thin bitterness. Chilli burn is nice enough, if a bit pushy. Finish is chalky chilli burn and sweet steamy colander orange rind bitterness.

Dark red brown, small white head. Aroma - sweet caramel, roasted malts, pepper. Spicy, malty and hoppy taste. A little bit oily and too lively carbonated for my taste, but interesting experience.
