2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Black with light brown head.
Some alcohol in the aroma. The body is to light for this beer and the chili is to heavy. Did they ad the chili just to hide a mediocre stout? Had to pour it out to not destroy the rest of the beer tasting session.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Black. Brown head. Malty and spicy aroma. Tastes like a regular imperial stout, malty and roasted, with chili added to it. But the chili dosent feel like a part of the brew. Interesting idea but not a very good result.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Porter-Otto and Systembolaget. Pours black with a creamy brown head. The “attack” aroma is coffee bean/espresso roasted and salty with notes of soy, anise and new asphalt. If you sniff harder a spiciness of green pepper, jalapeno oil, red chilly and dusty white pepper is notable. Juicy dark bread/pumpernickel, blackberries and herbal black tea hints. Creamy chocolate and toasted caramel the background. The flavour starts with notes of caramel, chocolate and coffee. The finish is very spicy with notes of chilly, pepper and jalapeno. Tar and anise. The mouthfeel is round and light oily with a soft carbonation. The ending is numbing spicy with light sweet malt. The bitterness is drowning in the spiciness. Medium bodied. Italy is keeping it real
