Nice porter, excellent character, not sure about the chili element necessarily, but very good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Kaisla
Aroma is nice with cocoa, some semi-dark chocolate. Flavour has cocoa, roasted tones, coffee and semi-dark chocolate. Finishes with chili kick. Nice, usually these chili beers are lame or overburning but Magic Rock has got it right. A bit watery this is, but it is the only flaw.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl on tap at Toit?s, Tallinn. Close to black with a rather small tan head. Malty aroma with roasty notes, dark fruits, chocolate, hints of coffee and some chilli. Moderate sweet with pleasant roasty flavours, mild chilli initially, but more noticable burn after a while. Really nice one, well balanced and nicely done. Wouldn’t mind more of this!

Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London 24/03/14. A pitch black beer with a tan coloured head. Bitter and roasty with a spicy kick but not a chilli burn. Neither is there much chocolate. Perhaps I’m immune to chilli heat as all I’m getting is a good roasty porter/stout like beer with just a smack on the lips. All that asides though this is a good beer.
