At the Fiery Foods Festival at the beginning of April this year I finally managed to run into the Fallen Angel Microbrewery, they have been brewing chilli beer for over 5 years now as part of their extensive range of 16 bottle conditioned beers.

Unlike other chilli beers which seem to be a promotional items, which have only been brewed for publicity there are really drinkable, there is no chilli floating in the bottle or chilli flakes or extract added to a bottled beer.

Fire In the Hole and Black Death Chilli Beers

The Fallen Angel brewers have worked hard to develop these beers with the chillies being added in what they describe as partial mashes, where the chillies are included at the start of the brewing process, which seems to help the chilli impart its flavour as well as its heat to the brew.
They have two chilli beers in the range:-

Black Death – Is a dark oatmeal stout made with naga chillies. At 5.2% by volume it is strong beer, and goes just as well on a cold winter evening as a winter warmer or as a summer drink to be savoured with friends.

Fire in the Hole – This is a much lighter brew at 4% and is best served as recommended ice cold, it is brewed with hottest fresh green chillies they can find, and while still having a good kick, it is easy to let a bottle or two slip down while cooking a BBQ.

Of all the chilli beers I have tasted these rate as the best so far, they are not something I would try just once for the hell of it, but if they were available locally would be a regular in my basket, these beers need national distribution, but don’t take my word for it, buy your own, or even better buy me another.

The brewery was established in 2005 in a small unit in Battle, East Sussex, as they business grew it had to relocate to larger premises in 2007 and after a change of ownership in 2009 they moved again to a new Industrial unit in East Hoathly.

Normally the entire output of the brewery is bottled with cask and keg ale only produced on special request.

The partial mash process is not a traditional brewing process in the UK, but is widely used in continental Europe, it enables them to make short runs of beer and make their wide range of 16 specialist beers.

I just tried your Black Death and I am in awe. What a fantastic demonstration of the modern brewer’s art. Liquid fire in a glass.

Very well done, gentlemen; had this been any fiercer a drink I wouldn’t have _needed_ to take my hat off to you; it would have been blown off of its own accord.
