tomer (3044) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 17, 2016
At BBF, opaque extremly dark brown color, vanila aroma with light coffee and dark bread with just a hint of spice and shrubs, quite sweet with a hot sensation becoming stronger, quite spice with dark fruits blending in. Hot sensation just a bit to Much making it a little difficult to drink, But still quite nice.

Tap@Borefts 2016, Bodegraven - pours black with tiny tan head. Roasted malty with notes of chocolate and overt chilli, burnt charred notes, spicy hoppy finish. Not for me.

Lonick (1499) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Keg @Borefts 2016. Pours black. Nose is big chilli and spices, taste is the same but for me way too much chilli, just not for me.

On tap@borefest: Pours black color with tan brown head. Aroma: dark malts, roasted, peat, chilli, vanilla. Flavor: very similar to aroma: intense chili burn in finish, which lingers in aftertaste. But overall still pretty balanced. Body is full, texture is soft, carbonation is low. Beer with great aging potentials.

Borefts Beer Festival 7th edition day 1 25/09/2016. A viscous caramel brown coloured pour with no head. Aroma is big smokey phenols, smokey, smooth caramel. Flavour is composed of nice dark choc, coffee, warming chillie choc, smooth roasted coffee. Palate is velvety smooth, mod carbonation, full bodied. I dig the chilli choc combo.

daje (4123) - NORWAY - MAY 22, 2016
Sample at Grünerløkka mat- og mikrobryggfestival 2015. Dark brown body with a tiny beige head. Aroma of roast, alcohol, wood, vegetable. Taste starts with licorice and chocolate, dry, with a hot chili kickin in at the finish. Burning hot, taking away most of the rest of the beer, a faint malt and choco character is noticed. It’s all good, though I believe adjusting the hotness down a tad to make room for more of the qualities this beer proves in the beginning would be wise. That said, for an over the top hot chili beer it’s damn good.
