3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured off the gravity cask at the GBBF. A very dark brown nearly black with a small head/film on top that left little lacing. the smell was dark malts and fruits, lot’s of Cocoa and rich coffee, and just a touch of chili pepper at the end of the nose. When you taste it however, the chili grabs you by the nuts and welcomes you to flavor country. The Coffee and cocoa compliment the Chili so nicely that while you certainly feel the heat every moment it is in your mouth I could not help but swirl it around to experience the flavors even more. they really work perfectly together with a hint of dark fruit such as dates and raisins adding to the complexity. The palate was smooth, rich and perfectly (naturally) carbonated. it coated your mouth and then your throat leaving you with a slightly burning sensation . . .Like if a Beer could violate you, give you an STD, and still leave you with a smile on your face, this is it. Great beer, even better experience, but not for everyone.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Olfestival 2011 Kobenhavn. Dark brown almost black with a deep brown, dense head which quickly disappears. Spicy malty aroma. The flavor is sweet and roasted malty and the chilli hits you at the end, and it is quite strong. Very unique and interesting, but thank god it was the last beer of the day otherwise I would have had a big trouble judging the beers that followed :D

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Tap at de molen 2013... Hot spicy 3... Deep black... Thin tan head... Soft dark chocolate... Dark malts... Big chocolate roast... Soft chilli. Spice... Booo hoo.. Dark snooth chocolate... Very nice but needs more ommmph 4.2
cask at gbbf ... deepest black ... thin lacing ...deep chocolate ... dark malt nose ... wow wonderfully rich chilli kick in amongst the ich dark silky chocolate malts ... smooth deep complex and f...in hot. great balance of chilli and roast 4.1
hot and spicy II at Demolen Fest 2011 ... Man this was Spicy. I had tried the Hot and Spicy I at GBBF, i though while pretty hot any hotter would have been a mistake. I think though i REALLY need a 2nd taste (if Meno wants to send me a bottle :-} ) to be sure that the II is better. At first taste your head explodes, your mouth catches fire and your teeth melt. But once that happens, you get the deep solid roast malts, the big chocolate, and the chilli pepper. Despite the WOW front it settles down into a well balanced if spicy beer. ... deep black ... thin tan lacing ... deep chocolate roast nose ... big spicy front .. huge malt ... big big roast ... spicy spicy spicy. 4.3
De Molen How and Spicy III, borefts 2013 ... deep black ... thin tan lacing ... deep chocolate ... nose ... deep rich malts ... light capsicum ... dark roast ... not hot enough

Draft. A black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of spices, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of chilis, roasted malt, and other spices, leading to a dry spicy finish. A bit too much chili for my liking.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Copenhagen festival 2011. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, roast and pepper. Dark brown-black coloured beer with a beige head. The taste is a bit sweet, moderate bitter and very hot. There is roast and chocolate. well there is a lot of pepper, but somehow it is still relative balanced and smooth. Dry and burning mouthfeel.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pfeffrig-malziger Antrunk, dem die Chilinoten nicht abzuerkennen sind. Scharf, die Malzigkeit dahinter ist durchaus gelungen. Das Bier ist zu scharf, in Teilen schwer trinkbar. 20% hiervon und 80% eines anderen Imperial Stouts dagegen gefällt besser. Habe es ausprobiert.. 9/12/2/10//10
