Poured from a 12oz bottle at home. Dark chocolate aroma, nice lacing on the glass. Really enjoying the full mouth feel and the hints of vanilla. Fantastic beer.

Nearly black, seems clear. Tiny, light beige head. Aroma has chocolate malt and chili notes, hints of wood. Dark choc flavour, roast and controlled chili heat tickling. Coffee later on. Bitter bite, low carb, lasting coffee bitterness.

DavoleBomb (1744) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Black color. One finger of frothy tan head. Retention is what you’d expect from a beer this big and just a wisp of lacing is left. 4.0 S: The first thing I noticed is the chiles in this. Big ancho aroma going on. Malt profile in this is of the big roasty variety. Tons of roasted malts, chocolate underneath, molasses, and caramel. Cinnamon and vanilla play a smaller role in this, but complement the beer well. 3.5 T: Big roasty flavors in the taste, but balanced by rich chocolate and molasses notes. Degrees of caramel with a touch of char. Chiles are less prominent in the taste and the vanilla and cinnamon only add a touch of flavor. 4.0 M: Heavier body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and smooth. 3.75 D: Pretty good beer overall. I wish the chiles and spices played a bigger role in this, but it’s good enough to try once. ★ 879 characters DavoleBomb, Apr 05, 2014

CacheManyHose (499) - HONG KONG - SEP 25, 2015
From Craftissimo. Drank after Momotaro. Smells of coffee, vanilla, roast malt, moderate booze, spice, lots of chocolate, dry woody fluffy hop. Tastes of burnt malt, acidic, light chocolate. Body is medium, oily, bitter, sour spicy frothier finish. Nice chocolately nose, taste thinner and somewhat burnt. Interesting beer.

HKdIPA (567) - HONG KONG - SEP 25, 2015
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Pitch black pour. Tan head. Not much lacing. Aroma is chocolate, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste is dark chocolate with deep booze burn and roasted malt. Not much chili? A hint of spice in the aftertaste - tongue tingling. Not as rich or big as I expected, almost like a lighter stout's flavor. Not at all bad though. Would maybe get again.

mixmasterob (1018) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle from a 4 pack. Black pour with a frothy beige head, decent retention. Nice aroma full of dark cocoa, vanilla, black malt, touch of spice. Flavors were melted candy bar, lots of roast, chocolate and vanilla, hint of smoke and spice. Lightish carbonation with a slick and viscous mouthfeel. Won’t blow your hair back but a solid shelf stout nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours Black with a brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, chocolate, vanilla, weak spice, some sweet malts, cane sugar and caramel. Taste of dark sweet malts, milky chocolate, some dark fruits, cane sugar and some liquorice and spicy notes at the end. Pretty good but where is the adjuncts?
