4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Aged for 2 1/2 years. An inky black beer that pours with an almost instantly disappearing tan head. It has very strong liquorice and chocolate flavours, an oily mouthfeel followed by sweet currants and a burning hot spicy chilli finish. Excellent!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours black with a tan head that quickly dissipates. The good chocolate and coffee flavours of Temptation are in there, but they are kind of overpowered by the chilli which brings quite a kick to the finish. An interesting novelty, but Iíll stick to the normal version.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a dark brown, clear beer with almost no head on top. Aroma is peppery, malty and caramel. Flavor is rahter bland, but the pepper kick is overwhelming, making this beer a tad better, but still not impressive. Overall quite a boring beer, except for the pepper burn of course. Mmmkay..

Bottle @ Chrisoís pre-GBBF Shindig. Brown with small head. Sort of disappointingly meek nose. Not much chili heat. Just a bit of chocolate. Roasted malts. Much more prominent chili flavors. Growing heat in the finish. Dark chocolate body. Somewhat thin considering the ABV. Oily. Overall, a bit weird. I look forward to the chili stout fad ending.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown almost black with a thin, tan, disappearing, head. Smells of deep chocolate, spices, and vanilla. Lots of deep malt here. Medium frothy body. Taste is smooth at fist and then the chilli starts to burn the tongue. The finish burns the mouth and leaves ash and burn. He base is basically roasted malt and chocolate but then the burn comes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared thanks to jmgreenuk. Pours near black with a small beige head. Aroma of chilli, light chocolate, malt and light roast. Flavor is over moderate sweet and bitter. The chillis burn on the tongue and linger long in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. The chilli is hot but nice as long as you donít mind that. A little over the top but fairly good.

Bottle. Black and flat with no head.The chillli is overpowering and takes control of the beer. Some people may like it but to me it is a complete drain pourer. A great pity because this brewery produces some good beers.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had bottle for almost a year, dark brown, almost black colour. Aroma is fairly weak, and a thin mouth feel, but then the chilli builds against the dry chocolate. One of the spiciest chilli beers Iíve tasted, and doesnít taste itís abv, but could do with more malt sweetness to balance the heat. One to try, but probably not to return to.
