RedSox2004 (1252) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Opaque pitch black with minimal head and lace, but a nice film on top. Chocolates dominate the aroma, accompanied by coffee, vanilla, and peppers. Taste is mostly rich creamy dark chocolate sweetness with a touch of bittersweet baking chocolate, coffee and pepper. Full body, creamy texture, no carbonation, warming alcohol and a pleasantly sweet finish.

Christopsy (102) - SCOTLAND - JUL 26, 2014
On tap at BrewDog Dundee. Pours almost black with a nice frothy head. Smells of chocolate, cinnamon, and a wee hint of vanilla. The dark chocolate malts and chocolate come through first thing. The vanilla sneaks in there and finishes with the cinnamon kick. Couldn’t really taste the chiles, but an excellent beer!

Andrus86 (27) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2014
BOTTLE. Poured nice thick & black with a BIG tan head. Got the cinnamon & vanilla on the nose but an explosion of flavours in the mouth. I felt each mouthful was different, but the vanilla seemed to come through the most. It finished with a slight spicy creamy finish. Sourced from Pourhouse Dunsborough
