kraddel (7564) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2015
Pours black, small grey head. Smell is dark malts, bit peppers. Some oak characters. taste is sharp, peppers, some mils red wine. heat builds up towards the aftertaste. On the virge of too much, but just , barely, pushing the border, making it very intense and just interesting ! Not too hot to take a second sip, but for sure hotter than the average beer ! Still some (dark) malts left.

floydian1 (1436) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 16, 2015
50cl bottle from Slowbeer, Melbourne. If you have ever had a Belgian-style Flanders Oud Bruin before then you will recognise the woody red wine vinegary aromas in this stout combined with the red chilli notes and roasted malts. Flavour is similar with the chilli spices noticeably coming through at the end of the palate. A soft spicy chilli heat lingers long after the swallow. Its rich and boozy but I reckon the chilli wasnt needed. It would have been fine without. It pours matt black with a medium beige head that laces nicely.

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2015
Pours black with a small head. Nose shows lots of chilli and smoky savoury notes alongside some funky Brett. Flavours include more funky Brett, soft red wine, big chilli heat and faint roast. Too much carbonation.

ogivlado (7656) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottled 500ml. -at Tolkiens House Zagreb. Pitch black coloured, medium sized beige head, soft sourish spicy nose with whiff of alcohol. Roasted malt, distinct barrel character, well balanced alcohol presence, chocolate mousse with chili powder...and this is it..."the chili stout" to talk about. Also light burning chili/alcohol mix in the finish and aftertaste. One of the best (or the best) chili beers so far. The price was high (almost 10) but worth of every single Croatian kuna (currency) Ive paid for it...and why to bother with price when you enjoying second bottle of this gem...;)))

Keg at Borefts day1 26/09/2014. Bodegraven. Viscous dark caramel coloured pour with no head. Aroma is spicy veg, roast nutty, veg broth. Flavour is composed of nutty choc, roast malts, big vhilli heat. Roasty toasty malts, bit of caramel cream. Ok but the balance is off.
