Bottle@ Enoteca Decanter, Milan. Poured a deep black colour with a nicely lingering tan head. Aroma packed with big roastiness, dark chocolate and berry fruit. Gorgeous silky smooth mouthfeel. Luxurious and warming. Gently sweet flavour with more roasty action. Nicely placed spiciness lurking. Expertly balanced and very enjoyable stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A huge beer. Tasted both on tap (at BQ, Milan) and in bottle. The most impressive and relevant thing about this beer is the persistent and quite strong pepper finish, which is a real surprise after the first taste. Roasted and malty aroma , with relevant dark chocolate hints. Interesting head.
Overall, a must try: love it or hate it, this beer is extremely unique and you won’t easily forget it.

Bottle at Bir & Fud. Black with a light brown, creamy head. Smoked and roasted malts aroma, hints of salty meat.Roasted coffee, liqueur, with the spicy chillies hitting the tongue towards the finish in particular (and when the beer warms up).Full-bodied, quite alcoholic. Excitingly different.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Blake for opening this! Poured black with a dense cap of sticky tan head (rather dark). The aroma picked up soft cocoa, bready notes, and charred molasses with low-moderate roast to it.. toasted chiles backed it up and accented well.. intriguing. The flavor found molasses, cocoa, and char at the core with some bitterness from the cocoa emanating outward.. building pepper throughout the drink never got beyond two alarm intensity.. well-balanced. Medium-bodied and somewhat tart on the palate.. nice, but not great malts in here.. this was a tasty brew.

Sweet looking bottle is kind of like a full wine bottle that had the middle cut out of it and the ends melted back on. It has a punt. Silly that the beer was nearly $10. Pours to a deep black body with a foamy tan head. The aroma is oatmeal and red pepper meets deep roasted milk chocolate. The flavor has a light black pepper and chili with a deep chocolate and light oatmeal. The palate is creamy and medium-full bodied.
