mR_fr0g (4734) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Cask at the moon under water Watford. Dark reddy brown / black coloured pour with a steadfast creamy tan head. Aroma is dark cocoa powder, dry roasted coffee, musty, sweet lactose. Flavour is composed of milky choc, roasted barley, smooth cream and then the heat kicks in, tingling on the lips and warming the back of the throat. Palate is full and milky, smooth, nitro feel. A little lactose sweetness. Lingering choc and earhy pepper. I like that this has a good chilli kick to it, but still has a good balance. Chilli choc works pretty well.

Theydon_Bois (11555) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Cask at the Kings Arms, Waterloo, 20/01/15. Black with a decent tan covering. Nose is chilli spice, green pepper, chocolate, charred notes. Taste comprises quite a chilli kick, dark malt, dark chocolate, spice, earthy, molasses. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, chilli burn in the close. Pretty big chilli kick but overall a good balance, definately enough spice to tip away from porter as a style on this one!

BeerViking (2932) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Cask at the Magpie, near black with a tan head, nose is cocoa, a little forest fruit, and something vegetal. The chilli cuts in really fast, and without a balancing creaminess, although cocoa and fruit are still perceptible through the burn.

Leighton (13270) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2012
Cask at The Rake, London. Pours clear, red-brown with a fine, beige cream head. Lots of sweet cocoa on the nose. Medium sweet flavor, some sugary chocolate, light earth, mild chili heat. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with light, roasty dryness, more chocolate, some lingering chilies, a bit of caramel. Decent.

Scopey (8329) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2012
Cask at Green Dragon, Croydon. It pours hazy deep brown with a medium beige head. The nose is roasted malt, earth, caramel, chocolate and just a touch of chilli pepper in the background. The taste is initially pretty sweet actually...caramel, cola and brown sugar then the chilli heat ramps up (but not to an unacceptable level), then some wood, touch of green veg and milk chocolate. Finishes up dry and moderately spicy. Medium body and soft carbonation. Actually the balance is pretty spot on, I assume they have made the base beer a lot sweeter to handle the sweetness. The body is definitely fuller than the regular entire. Good stuff - one of the few chilli beers I could easily drink a half of.
