Bottled @ DDDH, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, hint of pepper. Dark malty bitterness in taste, bit creamy, slight spicy hint. I have had it before and can remember the spicy bite was a bit stronger. Nice and easy drinker and lots of flavor for a 4% beer.

Thanks to WillemsUrenkel for that bottle. Looks really good. Beer in the glass dark black, nice head. Amazing aroma, warming-malty, stouty, a bit smokey. Starts intense malty, stouty, earthy. Gets milder and milder, but not washy, still soft-malty with some earthy-smokey notes. I like that beer!

Bottle at Rooie Dop, Utrecht at the RBESG 2013 opening night. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin off-white head. The aroma is dry dusty yeast. The flavour is medium bitter, spicy with liqourice. The chili is there but it adds to the flavour without dominating.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized darker beige light brown colored foamy head on top of a black colored beer.
Aroma has some good notes of oatmeal, roast, dust, chalk, coffee and chocolate.
Flavour has notes of dust, coal, roast, coffee, some chocolate, yeast, nuts, porridge, some coffee beans and malt toast with bitters and a light light spicy touch... Now we know...
Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, cacoa, malt toast, light hint of something spicy and some dusty coffee tones.
Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a creamy texture.
If I didn’t know about the pepper I wouldn’t have guessed it either. The pepper is not noticeable, but than again I love spicy food. Next to that it’s a decent beer, an absolutely for 4% ABV! Well done!

Thank you bierkoning for that one. Well, thank you beerkoning and not thank you Berghoeve for that smokey piwo. Tough one from start to end with some roasted malt and some chili in the aroma. Well, the smoked end and aftertaste kill all points. That´s it.
