Bottle at home, 4th January 14. Shit the bed this is a chilli beer. Pours a deep black, viscous drink, small head. Aroma is chocolate, a little heat some liquorice. Taste is liquorice, chocolate, soon turning to hot chilli rush, short lived, but enough for a hit, almost makes you shout Oi Zeus! However the pepper complemented the beer, both on flavour and the overall style and body of the drink, good stuff

Bottle directly from Siren Brewery, Finchampstead, Berkshire, 20th November 2013, consumed at home Saturday 28th December 2013 By christ this has some heat. For reasons best known to myself I took a fairly large gulp, I had not read up on this beer so had no idea that there was a chilli element, christ its hot....Its really spicy and pours like the Torrey Canyon spilling its load onto the Cornish Coast a sheen of brown coating everything. Thick in the mouth, interestingly when I poured this there was no head however one miraculously appeared but not for long, it was small dark brown and a brief fleeting head that soon departed into the depths from where it had sprung. Its amazing what you can do to a big ballsy full on Impy Stout that you could never do to just about any other style. Another great beer from Siren, more of a niche market beer and it wont appeal to all but I like it. Fuck me this is hot. A7 A5 T8 P5 Ov15 4.0

Black with no head. Oily looking, not massive aroma. Flavour of liquorice, smoke, oak, CHILLI! and is like treacle in a glass. My favourite chilli beer as although very dominant, is a great accent.

Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a pitch black beer with thin creamy, beige head on top. Aroma is fairly peppery, spicy and has touches of chocolate. Flavor is light spicey and sweet with big chocolate influences. Starts off very sweets, but has a pepper kick in the body and aftertaste. Luckily, its not that bad that it overwhelmes the palate, it suits the beer quite nice. Nice, balanced brew!

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee and a little dark chocolate. The flavour is strong bitter with a spicy chilli alcohol liqourice palate. This really is up there amongst the burners! Full bodied, low carbonation with an oily texture. More of he same please!
