Brewed with dried Ancho chilliest this might be, you’d never guess.
All I can find here is an alright Stout from East London.
There’s nothing memorable here at all, a light chocolate and thin coffee malt and the weakest slap of hedgerow hops.
And the chilli?
Well, in my kitchen I have a jar of dried chillies that have been there far too long, they smell old and fusty, and they add very little to anything I use them in save for a slightly odd cardboard dryness.
No real heat, no real spice, no real anything.
And I found exactly the same in this beer.
In fact, if you weren’t told that there were chillies in here, you’d just think the beer had a weird aftertaste.
As for the chocolate and cocoa nibs, I can’t find anything here that would make me think there was anything other than the usual Stout malts involved.
