4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2008 Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Opaque black with coarse beige head. Aroma of milk chocolate. Very soft and verlvetty. Like whipped cream with tar pastiles and chocolate. Laid back, yet mouthfilling. Aniseed and a very slight warming tingle from the chili comes through in the salty finish. A wonderful, well balanced beer that exceeds my expectations.

Copenhagen beer festival. Opaque black beer. Palate is not that thick. Smooth dark malts, not sour. Didn’t know about the chili in this so the fiery hot finish was a suprise! Decent though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2010 Bottle at home ... deep black ... creamy tan head ... light roast malt ... soft thin roast ... little toffee ... some liquorice ...little spice ... actually the spice/chilli does build ... in fact i hadnt realised the hot peppers was there till i read description looking to see if i was imagining the burn ..nice but not stunning ... but the hot pepper clearly raises this beer above the mundain.
test batch ... deep black .... chocolate malt nose... not getting the spice ... good solid roast
