3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle. BBE 20180701. Black beer with a lasting thick off-white head. First aroma is fruit reminiscent of chili, then peat, syrup. Very interesting. First flavour is malt, a hint of fruit again just before peat in the middle and all that is found in the finish is a slight/medium burn at the back of the throat (mileage may vary). Low carbonation as usual, easy to drink. Very peculiar, but surprisingly tasty nevertheless for such contrasting flavours. Not sure I had a chili beer before, but I can imagine this one is in the running for one of the best.

Big complex aroma of smoke, wood, and chilli. Similarly complex flavour profile is done with impressive subtlety. Not usually a fan of smoked or chilli beers - but this one goes a long way to making me one.

Wooly aroma, sheep shit hints, burnt and woody. Black, persistent tan head. Full palate, smooth. Rich roasty body, nice chilli heat, not a real burn, but a clear throb there. Pretty decent.
