Nsanders (788) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bomber. Black with a thin tan head. Chocolate, smoked wood, licorice, cinnamon, and the lightest note of peppers. It tastes sort of like the chocolate licorice. Medium body with a foamy feel. Was hoping for more chili flavor.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 Had this at a recent tasting. Not a bad stout but didn’t taste any of the peppers.

olio (8059) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2014
65 cl bottle. Bottled on 22.10.2012.
Pours pitch black color with a small off-white head. Aroma is chocolaty sweet, some caramel malts, cocoa powder, mild dark fruits and distant licorice notes. Flavor is intense with chocolate, cocoa and dark malts, mild chili notes, distant vanilla and licorice also. Very smooth, yet dry velvety palate but with a very bitter finish, nice balance. Excellent.

lamas (1466) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Rating #1300. 22 oz. bottle. Bottled on: 07/08/13. A jet-black pour with a thick and creamy British khaki head. A roasty caramel maltiness, chocolate, cinnamon, peppers, vanilla, and coffee in the aroma. Medium-bodied and smooth on the way down. Caramel upfront taste-wise. Vanilla. Lots of chocolate in the middle. Very malty. Some bitter roasted coffee at the end. Just a touch of a chili burn finishes things off. A bit of warming alcohol throughout. Not bad, but I had hoped for more...

Jimsal27 (291) - New York, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Pours black into glass with tan head. Aromas of chocolate, malt. Taste is malt, some chocolate. Don’t get any heat or hint of the pepper. Even the chocolate is suble. Full body soft carbonation. A little disappointing. Was looking for more chocolate and pepper.

StevieT (1110) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2014
Subtle aroma, jet black, thin off white head, strong coffee and chocolate flavours, bitter, smooth, you could do a lot worse. Thick and rich, not a beer for casual drinking, a real beers beer.
