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!

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog Bristol. Pours opaque brown. Thin quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is chocolate dark fruits caramel more sweet dark chocolate. Wonderful. Flavor is chocolate and burnt caramel. Slight chili burn but not as much as I thought. Very creamy and smooth. Really great beer. And I hate chili beers.

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.

Gift.. the year in best. Thank you Rob!
Dark black color, short lived head.
Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, strong coffee, burnt, wood, alcohol. Flavor is heavy sweet and light heavy bitter with a long duration, fantastic roasted malt character with some noticable chili heat. Chocolate, wood, light chili warm. Deeply complex. This is simply an great, unbelievable beer. Congratulation. Not every day and not every day to drink. and reasonable opportunity to be the case. Gorgeous.
World class.
Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to factual.
