3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
100ml sample at Hanshin Dept Store.
L: jet black, no head, like syrup. A few tiny bubbles.
S: Rich roasted chocolate malt. So much dark chocolate.
T: boozy, like bourbon, but with dense malt and chocolate. More
bitter than sweetness.
F: slight carbonation, coats the throat and lips, full-bodied.
O: decent sipper, I like my stouts a bit lighter and more complex. The supposed chili didn’t really come through like how it works in Prairie Bomb.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2016 Batch 142, bottled on 17. 6. 2013: Black opaque colour with brown head which dissapeared in a minute. Without visual carbonation. Aroma: discrete presence of alcohol, namely presence of maltines aroma prevails: chocolate, coffee, vanilla, little dried fruit (plums), roasted, but without notes of hops.
taste is similar: firstly you notice alcohol, but than immidiately prevails notes of malts in Naga Chilli. On the second hand you detect notes of hop (flovers, herbs, little spicy).
Hop bitterness is low, malt sweetness is medium. Body is full and adhesiv, bitterness is low, also in finish. Complex beer - a piece of Masteripece!
