Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottled, #2730 of 3300. Poured near black with lighter brown around the edges.. nothing stuck around for head. The aroma picked up burnt coffee, licorice, and cocoa, with black pepper, more robust pepper, and spicy alcohol around.. a little oxidation set in, and it was complementary. The flavor found burnt licorice, molasses, and coffee at the core, with vanilla and dry cocoa on the edges.. a little pepper meat around there too.. picked up a touch of peppery spicage, alcohol warmth, and fruity yesat on the long finish. Heavy-bodied with very low carbonation on the palate.. slick and oily on the middle, and a tad grainy through the finish.. not a lot of Naga presence, but it really didn’t need it. Excellent brew!

Theydon_Bois (9930) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle split at CBC Islington, massive thanks to Fergus for bringing this one out on my 40th, 11/10/14. Black with moderate tan spotting and edgework. Nose is big roast maltings, dark chocolate, figs, molasses, earthy notes. Taste comprises rich roast, coffee tunes, dark malts, brown sugar, boozey notes, dark fruit rinds, light spice. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, sweet roasty close with a peppering of spice. Decent impy, drinks well below its ABV - which may have dropped off a little, but has held up pretty well.

Bottle, oily black with a gravy and old leather nose, smooth and syrupy, with a rich spicy cocoa and roast beef body. Strangely delicious.

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

VictorStr (1434) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
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.
