Infiniteipa (30) - - FEB 23, 2014
Pours deep black with a thin tan head, the lively carbonation keeps this going well into the drink. The aroma is sweet coffee & chocolate. The taste is dark, smoky, savoury malts to start, followed quickly with a sweet spiciness that fills the mouth, coating the back of the throat, slowly pushing towards the front, encompassing the whole mouth. The body is thinner than expected, but the lively carbonation works well with the chilli’s. The after-taste is long, but not as complex as I would have wanted, although the spice comes through well, perfectly pitched . Overall a great beer, very drinkable (dangerous) for the ABV, another cracker from De Molen!

Bottle. Pours black with nice brown head. Aroma is sweet, malt, smoke, fruity chili, brownie, slight heat, molasses, vanilla. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, vanilla then hits you with fruity chili and burning heat. Smooth full body. Long burn! Dark rich chocolate. Went amazing with chili sausage and barbecue!

Alexanderdahl (101) - DENMARK - MAR 14, 2015
Fuck. Yes! Smoke? Check! Chili? Check! Vanilla and chocolate? Check! Pitch Black and Smokey nose! Little fruity as well. And BAM! The chilis hit you like furious piranhas in a pool spilled with Virgin blood. And then smoke rolls over you, adding to bonfire in your mouth. So complex, spicy and fruity, yet dark and chocolaty and smooth. Yes!

olio (7941) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2015
33 cl bottle. Bottled on 16.09.2013.
Pours pitch black color with a red tint on the sides and a small beige head. Very interesting aroma on this one, some chocolate cherry, wood, mild smoky notes, faint chili and dark malts. Coffee and dark berries on the flavor, dark chocolate and slightly roasted malts, the chili notes appear more towards the end. The mild burning sensation lingers for a while but never too strong, quite balanced actually. Not sure how strong the chili would have been on a fresh bottle but here it feels just right. Very creamy full palate. Very nice.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne; bottled Sept 16th 2013; 11% ABV
Black color with compact brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, a bit dusty; not chocolaty as expected usually from De Molen. Good body strength; it has the usual excellent chocolate flavor, less sweet than other Imperial Stouts, with strong but correct bitterness, and a chili kick that it’s just right for my palate. But don’t drink another beer after this one.
Chili beer is not a favorite style, but this one is very well brewed.

Bottle from Guinn, shared with Peter. Guinn picked it up in Amsterdam and brought it home. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is malty and roasty, with a good bit of cocoa. flavor follows with a nice chili burn - but is not uncomfortable. Pepper. More chocolate. Really nice beer.

Bár korábban volt már dolgom csípős paprika hozzáadásával készült főzetekkel, ennek a komponensnek a térnyerését nem igazán véltem annyira számottevőnek, ami a különleges ízektől irtózók számára aggodalomra adna majd okot. Ezt a meggyőződést az illatolás során tapasztaltak is erősíteni látszottak, ekkor ugyanis egy kifogástalan, kellőképpen telt, nyilvánvalóan édeskés, kávés-kakaós, picit füstös, hordóérlelt imperial stout aromáival szembesülhetünk. Bár szivacsos habja meglehetősen vastag és kitartó, túlzott szénsavassággal nemigen találkozunk, a kezdeti benyomások során sima, krémesen lágy, telt és étcsokoládésan pörkölt malátás ízjegyek fogadnak minket. Koromfekete teste csak ezt követően kezdi felfedni titkait, ami először a nyelvünk hegyén bizsergő izgalmas intenzitás, majd a kakaós hangulatokat követően a garatunkat, nyelőcsövünket tűzbe hozó pikáns rafinéria formájában történik meg. Efféle energiára korántsem számítottam, ha nem szeretném az ilyesfajta ízeket, azt mondanám, hogy szinte már túlságosan csípős a helyzet. Az igazsághoz hozzátartozik azonban, hogy a szimpátiám ezidáig leginkább az étel formájában jelentkező csípősséghez kötődött, és talán a konzervatívabb vélemények szerint bármi, ami ezt a fajta ízt idézi egy sörben, az már túlságosan csípős, jómagam mégis amondó vagyok, hogy a kalandor kedvűek semmiképpen ne kerüljék el ezt a főzetet, a hagyományos felfogás hívei pedig nyilvánvalóan hallani sem fognak róla...

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2014
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.
