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

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)
