4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours jet black with a brown head that disappears completely. Aroma is simple, with syrup, sweet chocolate and sweet chilli. Flavour is amazing though with a lot of sweetness, chocolate, coffee, chilli, vanilla, oak, a hint of bourbon and dates. Mouthfeel is smooth, thick and creamy and then surprises you with a slight chilli burn. Body is medium to big. An aftertaste of sweet chocolate and coffee lingers for a long time and makes you suck your gums. Despite it’s strength, there is no disturbing booziness, only a very slight, nice warming sensation.

375 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch black with small, brownish/tan head. Smells of dark chocolate, coffee, chili and some booze. Flavour is sweet with similar notes (also soy sauce) and some bitternes. Very tasty! Medium to full mouthfeel with very little carbonation and a long finish with chili. Very good overall.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle, thanks mybestfriend) Pours black with a small brown head. The aroma is of aromatic coffee, dry cocoa and spicy chilly, go figure. There is also room for hops, soy meat, and tar asphalt. I like the nose; it’s extreme in every direction without being over the top. The flavour is heavily sweet (sucralose-like), medium bitter and medium acidic. Soy, syrup, roasted malt, sweet liquorice and caramelized meat. The mouthfeel is heavily syrupy and light carbonated. Lingering coffee roasted and super sweet finish. Full bodied.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle, 1399 of 3300. Pours pitch black with no head. Loads of legs. Aroma is malty chocolate and some spicy fruit, which I’m guessing us the chilli. Bourneville and chilli. Taste is spicy chocolate to start and cocoa chilli next. Warmth on the finish from both the chilli and alcohol. Loads of booze.
