3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black with a creamy khaki head. Aroma of green chillies, chocolate sauce, mocha and vanilla. Flavours are upfront spices, green chili, lots of chocolate and rounded off with a lingering molasses sweetness. As it warms up it gets a lot sweeter. Spicy bitter finish, chili warmth lingers with the vanilla. If the sweetness was toned down a bit and the heat was a bit higher it would be perfect.

Bottle generously provided by Douglas.
A: Oily black brew with a cappuccino head that dies down. Legs.
N: Molasses, soy sauce, cocoa, vanilla, coffee, black peppercorn, peppers.
T: Spicy capsaicin, dark sweetness, and an underlying bitterness. This is extremely well balanced.
M: Treacly heavy body, just enough carbonation, and a surprisingly lack of alcohol burn. Impressive covering of the booze.
O: This is very, very good, especially for an amped up pepper beer. I would definitely purchase this is if I saw it again.

Bottle shared by "Douglas88". Colour...very dark brown with no head. Nose...delightfully spicy and peppery with day old coffee, dark chocolate and booze. Palate...fairly thick and somewhat cloying with gobs of coffee and joyous bitterness. The palate is dry and oak-like with coffee creme and Coffee Nips.
