Craft Islington. Cask. Opaque black beer, residual tan head. Palate is smooth and low carbonation. Super light dark malt. Trace of apple! Chilli starts in the mid and keeps going, getting pretty hot - but as Leighton said - itís the back of the throat. Finishes semi dry. Was entertaining but a quarter of a pint was more than enough because of the chilli heat, so lacking much drinkability.

Cask at Craft Beer Islington, 06/03/13. Light black with a thin tan head. Nose is roast malt, light coffee, milk chocolate. Taste comprises a big chilli kick of which there was little warning on the nose, milky chocolate latte, woody notes, herbal tones. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, spicey bite in a dryish finish. Ok for a chilli beer but a little over the top - a half was a chore in the final third!

Cask @ CBC Islington. The pourís deep brown with a tiny tan head. The aromaís sweet coffee creamer, chocolate, hints of lactose, a bit of vanilla and creme brulee sweetness. The sweet nose doesnít prepare you for the shock of the chili that develops after a few sips. The taste starts with more sweet chocolate cake, a bit of coffee and sweetener. Earthy chili builds, growing to dominate the palate after the first few sips. The bodyís oily, smooth. The carbonationís fine, soft. Overall, I find chili to rarely work in beer. This wasnít a favorite.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 Nice sweetish coffee porter. Lots of espresso notes in the nose. But the taste is just too spicy for me. Overpowering chili peppers. Half a pint is tough to drink through. Sipper. Cask at CBC, Islington.

Leighton (18522) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Cask at CBC Islington, London - thanks to Jack. Pours deep brown with a fine, beige foam head. Noce roasty malt nose with notes of milk chocolate. Light to medium sweet flavor with a sharp, quick chili bite, along with mild cocoa. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lots of chili heat to finish, some dry cocoa, mellow earthy bitterness. Thankfully the pepper burn is quick. Decent anyway.

Cask at Craft Islington. Black beer with ring of tan bubbles. Choc aroma. Just the right side of chilli heat. Body of beer could do with a bit more fullness but chilli is just right for me.
