3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It serves a black body without any head, but a few bubbles are found around the rim. A bit weak on the nose, with roasted malts and back coffee. Smooth, full-bodied beer with flavors of sweetness, roasted malts, some dried fruits, coffee and a chili burn coming stronger and stronger, turning really delicious. The rest of the flavor is a bit weak. Chili dominates the finish, but the roasted malts are present too. A quite lovely chili stout. (090517)

pitch-black, almost espresso-like, a bit of licorice, good head, nice lace,the hot peppers didnít really jump out as I had hoped, more of black pepper than anything, almost chalky at times, but the finish was warm & smooth and hung around...

Bottle shared with Tronraner. Pours deep red/brown with a small head. The nose is peppery, but not well defined. Itís sharp, slightly vegetal, and a little chocolatey. The heat is only noticed buried in the finish after a few sips. Notes of brownies, waxy chocolate, and a peppery sharpness are in the flavor. This is definitely thin for the style. This has immense potential which is not fully realized.

Bottlet courtesy of sloth. I kept the empty bottle to use as a club in my truck in case I am truckjacked. Damn! Photon eating black with a moderate head that skims down in due time. Aroma is of robust dark malts with some chocolate sweetness as well. Hints of coffee too. Body is large as expected anad will do for lunch on its own....proven. tingling espresso roast on tip of toung...bitterness lingers. Warm finish makes the mouth salivate for more. I will dare to operate heavey equipment as my typing isnt all that bad at the moment. Props Bertly!!! See yah on the 25th of July.

Draft at redlight redlight. Pitch black pour with a medium, foamy cream colored head that leaves some sudsy lace behind. The aroma shows hints of dark chocolate, roasted espresso, and peppery spice that is quite interesting. The flavor shows more of the dark chocolate and roasted espresso to go with some peppery spice and heat on the backend. I like how the pepper comliments the other flavors. Medium bodied and smooth with subtle carbonation with a long, spicy and roasty finish. Really niteresting take on the imperial stout style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: An earthy fruity dirty moderately roasted imperial stout. Good
How: From the bottle at Montreal Mondial de la BiŤre 2009
The look: Near black body topped by a very small tan head
In long: A grainy big earthy nose and a grainy big earthy body with molasses, dark fruits, some black cake, burnt sugar and roasted wood. Far from a clean beer I had a peaty sensation (even some tar) from the aroma until the after-taste. Supposedly brewed with hot-peppers but luckily they are so well concealed that I didnít notice any. Verdi, vomi, vichy. I had too much Ducato, I puked, I drank mineral water.

Bottle via trade with dchmela. Pours a nice velvety black with a strong red hued brown head. Nose is chocolate at first and then fades to chard malts. Flavors are warm roasted to burnt malts with a nice chili oil slow burn, nice hints of bittersweet chocolate. Good beer and the chili is well balanced.
