3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Keg at Ølhus København, 201601022) The beer poured very dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and nearly white. Aroma had smoke, tar and burnt malts. Palate was medium bodied with mild burning from chilli and rather high carbonation. Flavours were smoke, tar, sweetness, chilli, burnt malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, burning and bitter. A bit messy brew but luckily the chilli wasn’t overdone.

Fra flaske (Beerbliotek Black Ale Chilli #01) på sesongåpning Mi2, Cardinal aug-16: nesten helt svart, med ok skum. Aroma av røstet malt, kaffe, sjokolade og et snev av chili. Bittersjokolade og kaffe i smaken før chilifaktoren slår inn for fullt. Ingen tvil om tilsetningen, her får du a lingering afterburn. Et typiske deleøl.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle, as Beerbliotek Black Ale Chilli #01, at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.6%. Black colour, moderate beige head. Aroma of roast malts, mild coffee and chocolate, hints of chili. The flavour is first smooth, mildly roasty and chocolatey, then a substantial chili burn sets in, and lasts through the long aftertaste (where also some hops are present). Lovely stuff! But one bottle is enough in one sitting, due to the chili heat - the second bottle you can add to your chili con carne.
