LRonCupboard (32) - ENGLAND - APR 18, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Bottle from Oak Barrel. Good effort this one. Chili is pretty subtle. Overwhelming flavours are chocolate, vanilla and coffee (and quite sweet overall). I noticed another reviewer relating this to Mole and I fully agree, it kind of has a bit of that earthiness. Not the most complex or rich, but a good go to quaffer for imperial stout fans (as in Oz, where you get ripped of for almost everything, it is certainly one of the more value-for-money ISs).

Bottled. Black with a tan head. Aroma and flavour of chccolate, roasted malt, caramel, licorice and vanilla.

tekstr1der (345) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 15, 2016
While I appreciate a good Mexican chocolate, I feel they missed the mark here. Pours dark with almost no head. Aroma is of roasted malts with hints of alcohol and spice, but no chocolate. Flavor is not too different, having more vanilla and spice combine in a somewhat medicinal way. Not what I was looking for. Finish is fairly clean.

Bottle, bought@Kihoskh, Cph. Pours deep opaque black with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma has deep chocolate, nuts, light chili and cocoa. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of fat chocolate, cocoa, hazelnuts, vinious, vanilla, a slight warming touch.

RRistow12 (664) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Aroma is big time chocolate with some spicey notes. Taste is very well balanced with mild bitterness. Excellent flavor of chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon. Notice a little chili flavor on the finish. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kauge (1530) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 13, 2016
Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Bottled 11.2016. Subtle chili and chili chocolate, sweet, bitterish finish, liqorice-like moments. Soft, mellow carbonation. Dryish roast. Lovely stuff, I really like this. Downing the whole bottle would probably make the chili hit a whole lot harder.

Marduk (6004) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 10, 2016
330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Slightly hazy chestnut color. Small size, tan head, disappears. Dark chocolate, chilly, vanilla, sweet in aroma. Sweet, nutty, roast, vanilla, faint licorice in taste. Vanilla, dark chocolate and licorice in aftertaste. Soft fizzy carbonation. Nice roast. Solid brew.

suurjuust (2770) - ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
UPDATED: APR 8, 2016 Bottle shared by Mart. Dark brown beer, very small tan head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, vanilla, a small smidgen of chili. Flavor is chili, coffee and coffee beans, dark and milk chocolate. Middle to late finish is licorice, coffee and a more pronounced chili hit, citric hops in the finish. Nice one.
