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

Wow. What a beer! Very rich, silky and full of flavour (especially for the ABV). A real big hit of chilli for a beer. Very nice.

1/2 pint @cask Aberdeen. Body is pitch black, head is small beige average lasting excellent lacing. Nose is roasty, aroma is dark roasted coffee, hot chilly, black out. Taste is roasty bitter. Medium body dry texture soft carbonation. Way too spicy, interesting.

Really heavy chocolatey aroma with the same subsequent taste. A little syrupy with a very slight aftertaste. Quite delicious.

Chocolate porter. Very strong aroma if chocolate. Very dark red, nearly black with a lasting creamy head. Very spicy taste. Really flavoursome.

Quite an intense porter. Has a strong smoky and spicy smell. The body has a lot of chocolate and surprises with a lot of chili heat. Leaves you with a slight burnt bitterness and a nice chili afterglow. Definitely worth a taste!

Keg at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Dark brown, minimal head. Chocolaty nose with some bell pepper. Mid sweet with medium body and clean mouthfeel. Some chocolate, then all chili. Not much smoke, mainly heat. Not balanced.

On tap at Euston Tap. Black with a small froth. Espresso and caramel aroma. In the mouth the chillies rule. Quite a punch!

On tap at Brewski April 2014. Big hit of chilli in the finish that stays with you long after the beer has gone.

Black beer with a frothy, light beige head. Aroma is toasted malt, chocolate and caramel. Flavour caught me totally off guard with an initial hit of chilli as on the pub’s board it just called it ’Punchline’! This is followed up by more usual malt, chocolate and an airy, hoppy feel in the mouth but the spice remains and dominates the beer. It?s nice and interesting but I wouldn?t have more than one during a session.

On cask at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Rich dark brown body, thick off white lacing head. Nose is a dark sweet chocolate, a hint of the chilli to come in the nose. Taste is lovely and spicy, utilising all the chilli to its full potential, rich and smoky. Warmth at the end... and still ten minutes after finishing... with a stickiness to the mouthfeel. I liked this... A LOT!
