Bottle 330ml. Pours opaque brown. Thin quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruits, caramel and more sweet dark chocolate. Taste is chocolate, burnt caramel, coffee and a strong roasted malty backbone. Slight chili burn but not as much as I thought, the alcohol warmth is stronger. Very creamy and smooth. Really great beer, although the alcohol is very present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lagrad 4år. Delade en flaska med Wihlan. Chilin träder fram i aromen, hel del sötma. Smaken är söt och chilin kommer tillbaka i slutet av smaken. Mycket mörk choklad och kaffe.

Fantastisk!!! Svart som natten och med en härlig arom av chokladkaka och kaffe med en hint av chilli. Smakar mörkchoköad och chille. Chillin har lagt sig så det är en mycket trevlig smak. Fantastisk!

Backlog. Tasted at a vertical tasting of the first six abstracts released. Bottles from Systembolaget. Chili in beer is really off-putting for me, so sorry, this wasn’t a favourite.
