3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
28th June 2010
Opaque black beer. Frothy brown head. Smoked chilli pepper nose. Softish palate. Sweet creamy dark malt. Well blended smoked roasted chilli peppers. Tangy with a nice blooming warmth that is just about right and doesn’t blow your head off! Sublte fruit, well buried. Thought this would be a stinker - so pleasantly wrong!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours black with very small tan head. Aroma is very roasty, thick malt, with coffee, cocoa, pepper, oak wood. Taste is all about the chipotle, really, it’s very spicy from the start. I have a recipe for baked black beans that we do with chili, dark chocolate and Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Chipotle, it’s absolutely amazing. This beer is like a liquid form of that dish. It’s rich and full, malty and roasty, and very spicy. A perfect finish to the night. Great stuff!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black with a frothy, creamy, brownish head
Aroma is roasted malts, caramel and hints of booze.
Taste is roasty with hints of caramel and coffee at first then giving way to the soft burn of hot chillies. Finish is slightly bitter with lasting burn from the chili.
Palate is close to full and softly carbonated.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black beer with a nice holding light brown head. Decent mixture off malts, roasted coffee, sugar and a decent amount of spices. Dry and earthy alcoholic and spiced finish. Good, but misses something, a small sweetness boost maybe. Good peppery finish.

Black colour, beige head. The chilli taste blends in well with the stout, and is not overwhelming. One of the best chilli beers I’ve had.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours black with a creamy beige head. The nose has chili peppers, chocolate, vanilla and light smoke. The flavor opens with chocolate, light smoke, chili peppers, and a touch of ash. The chili peppers become stronger with each taste. Quite a bit going at 6.6‰.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
In bottle at home. Looks beautiful, like an espresso coffee with a jet black colour and a fair brown head that settles to a cap. Aroma of vanilla, chilli’s, roasty malt and alcohol. Similar flavours with the chilli really coming through the dark chocolate and burnt toast characters. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering chilli’s and chocolate again. Lovely.
