2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
3rd February 2011
Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. A sample courtesy of Simon. Cheers! 7.7% Version. Seems a lot less complex than peoples rating of the 10.3% version. Hazy dark brown beer, no head. A little toffee malt and a trace of fruit. A nice mellow touch of chilli, well used here as a flavour rather than a gun to the taste buds! Alright.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009 version, 7.7%. Cask at the Bricklayers Arms Yorkshire Beer Festival, 25th Feb 2010. Wow, I never thought I’d rate a spice beer this highly. Nose has chilli burn and lots of bitter chocolate. In the mouth there’s also iodine and parma violets. An extreme taste but not just a one-dimensional "hot sauce" of a beer. I really enjoyed it.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid stout. Massive peppery kick back. Black pepper dominant on the pallet so much overwhelmingly so. I thoroughly enjoyed this at Bricklayers Arms beer festival in Putney. My main reason for going. Enjoyed with Bob. The toffee and the caramel are present and a gorgeous blend of roasted malts. A lovely stout.

Bottle in the hillborough hotel, sheffield. Alround rating: Its very sweet pale malt, with a good green pepper character, and the alc is really well hidden by this then the chilli kicks in and your like i need something to cool this down, but you continue to drink this beer. Unusual stuff!

In the aroma, jalapeno mingles with brown nutty malt and dried fruit. Almost clear reddish dark brown with no head. Thick brown sugar with nuts, dried fruit, and very gentle jalapeno spiciness. Medium body, low carbonation, spicy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Hillsborough Hotel, Sheffield.
Pours clear, deep amber with no real head. Aroma has lots of pepper, some chili, light sweet caramel and a slight raspberry note. Medium carbonation, good creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of sweet caramel, then turns hot with lots of chili burn, then some chocolate to calm the tastebuds. Really nicely done.
