OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2011
Sample from a 375 ml bottle. Body is jet black, topped by a dark choco head slowly fading to a ring of bubbles. Vinous aroma of hard roasted malts, strong coffee and dark chocolate. Some wooden notes, barely noticable alcohol. Taste is utterly complex. Armloads of roasted dark malts. Coffee and chocolate, wood and vanilla. Some cherry tones, and hints of alcohol. The chillies added is difficult to pin-point. They merge well with the alcohol and provides a hot, yet rounded mouthfeel. Thick and oily texture. Big and beautiful, and fully balanced. A very nice one.

D: Doften är enormt stark med mycket chili och lakrits. S: Smaken är otroligt fyllig, lite vinös, kaffe, choklad med en mycket trevlig hetta från kryddorna. Aningen söt, men trots allt mycket lättdrucken.

gyllenbock (7187) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle. Black with a small tan head that disappeared quickly. Interesting aroma of chili, chocolate and some wood. A lot of licorice in the taste, also chili, light coffee and sweet chocolate. Nice mouth feel, long aftertaste, rather thick body. A nice beer that was easy to drink despite 15%.

Die_Kapusta (191) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2011
Pours black with no head.

Aroma is oak wood, molasses, moss, coffee liquer and licorice.

Taste is sweet, boozy, complex and intense. Licorice, espresso, muscovado sugar, wood, tar, sprout leafs, vanilla and leather.

Really rich mouth feel. Only negative is that it´s a bit too sweet. Love it though.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2011 Bottle. Pours out in an opaque black colour with a low creamy pale brown head. Rich aroma of milky chocolate, cocoa-powder, cherries and hot pepper. Full-bodied with rich sweetish and spicy notes of cocoa, milky chocolate, brown sugar, Turkish coffee, black pepper and mild chili. Long full sweet and hot finish of sweet milky chocolate with a growing heat from the chili. Pleasant and quite funny stuff.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2011
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.

jtclockwork (13278) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with quickly dissipating reddish brown head. Nose and taste of barrel, chocolate, coffee roast, chili pepper and vanilla. Lots of initial chocolate and vanilla with a roasted coffee and barrel aged chili pepper in the finish.

tobydarling (31) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2011
bottle 929. Pours an intense black, with a dark brown head that thins quickly. Aroma is chocolate, tar, dark fruits (christmas pud), alcohol. Palete is all dark fruit and chocolate, and there is a hint of chilie with a warming sensation. Great long dry dark chocolate finish, with again, just a hint of chilie
