330 ml bottle. 11%. Bottled on Sep 16th 2013. From bierkompass.de.
Black colour with a small tan head. Vanilla, sweetness, mild berries, mild sourness and roasted malt in the aroma. The flavour is bitterness, roasted malt, ashy dryness, burning chili, pepper, chocolate and vanilla sweetness. Rather nice. Rich. Just right amount of chili spiciness. The Carolina Reaper chili sausages I ate last night are waking up in the stomach.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, chili peppers, a touch of smoked. Flavour is roasty, vanilla, with a long spicy peppery aftertaste. One might expect dynamite from this brew, but it’s actually remarkably subtle and complex. I can’t believe people are saying this has too much chili (but maybe it’s just that I’ve become accustomed to extremely spicy food).

Bottle @home. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is chocolate, bit coffee and a hint of chili. Taste is chocolate, and chili. Chocolate and spicy finish. The more you drink the stronger the chili feelings gets :-)

Nose is balanced vanilla, cream, cork, decent red pepper sweetness, mediumdry tobacco, feel is quite broad, taste is decent alcohol bite, wood chip, from the middle out the chili note is lingering and super-balanced, later sweet red peppers zing

From bottle at ’t Arendsnest. Black with a small, beige head. Roasted malts, pepper notes, vanilla. Good spiciness, vanilla, chocolate, pepper. Very complex and with a spicy sting that lasts.

Osprey87 (1711) - WALES - MAY 24, 2014
Bottled at 11%, Sep 2013. Black, small foamy brown head. Aroma - molasses, roasted barley, oil, chili, whisky. Body is medium, pretty foamy. Taste is roasted barley, coffee, ash, decent chili hit. Nice flavour, but it’s a little sharp and foamy for me. Would possibly benefit from an extra year in the bottle.

Cask sample @ Terminal 1, Codogno. Noire foncée, col crémeux blanc cassé. Arôme est agréablement épicé sur un bouquet de base DM RIS, choco profond, caramel. Palais offre de suite son profil épicé qui reste malgré tout bien placé avec le caractère fort malté de la bière. Léger chocolaté avec un petit retrait rappelant la barrique. Biscuité sur un fini sec. La chaleur dégagée par les piments est tout de même présente mais pour moi ça fonctionne bien. Une DM réussie, pour une fois!!!

Fast schwarzes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, Kaffee, reife Früchte. Geschmack nach Kaffee, Röstmalzig, Pfeffer, Chili, angenehme Schärfe.

Black body, medium tan head. Nose is cocoa, green peppercorns, wood, vanilla. Simple enough but nice. Flavor is cocoa, roast, barrel for a second then a strong but not quite overwhelming hot pepper character. Vanilla & cocoa along with roast come out in the finish. Great body.
