Bottle at the Anderson, cheers Jim! Pours a deep viscous black with a small thin white head. The cacao is evident on the nose and in the mouth though the chilli and the sea salt are a little absent on my palate. Big, rich and quite boozy, it is great but I’ll admit I was a bit disappointed

Aroma is cocoa, coffee, truffle, dark chocolate, light chili. Light sweet, heavy roasty bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty medium to heavy bitter, later bit salty, light alcohol warmth. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. A bit heavy, very tasty, chili is moderated, very good.

Choco Perfektion. Der Chiligeschmack nur ganz hintergründig erahnbar. Der Rest dann einfach nur wunderbar schlank, sanft, elegant trocken & vollendet. Vom Hahn im Arendsnest, Amsterdam. 25cl/ca. 5 Euro.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

On tap at ’t Klooster in Delft - No idea what I thought I’d ordered, but it sure as hell wasn’t this, and I’d gone for a big one to kick the Klooster session off. Tar black, haze of tan on the top. Nose is big bold, cocoa, coffee, liquorice. The warmth of the chilli made me realise this wasn’t the stout I thought I’d ordered, The warmth of the alcohol made me go back to the bar to ask what I’d really ordered. I didn’t regret the mistake, quality.

Bottle. Pours a totally pitch black color with a medium brown head. A nice deep nose of roast, chocolate, some dark fruit. Very rich dark fruit, I certainly get a tropical vibe from the pepper which mimics hops, some clear salt in the finish. All together, this works well. The base flavor is slightly smoky with big dark fruit. Quite easy to drink a few.

ogivlado (7033) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 26, 2016
Bottled 330ml. -at Pivoteka Zagreb. Dark brown head, small tan head, chocolate in the nose. Heavy roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, notes of wood and cocoa powder with mild spicy finish. Subdued salt and even more chilli. Very good beer but something is missing to be great one.

neepsntatties (1651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 25, 2016
Bottle. Colour...nearly black with a thin tan head. Nose...smoky, bacony and lightly briney with notes of soy and smoke. Palate...anise, soapstone and bonfire smoke with a bountiful array of spicy, smoky notes and something that seems okay. The finish is very smoky and a bit cantankerous with its manly notes of BBQ meats.
