Fantastic stout, dark almist black color, foam is a little thin and the bobbles hard. But the biting aftertaste of chocolate and chili makes it a big winner. Good thinking.

crossovert (10045) - Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2015
33cl bottle. Dark black/brown pour, tan head. Aroma is smokey and salty. Flavor is salted caramel and ash. Dry and intriguing. Not the worst. No chili flavor.

wlajwl (4929) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Aroma is chocolate/dark chocolate, dark malts and a relatively small hint of spices/chilies. The flavor is dark malts, chilies, chocolate, mild heat and a slightly sour/warming alcohol finish.

0.33 KP. Black with tan bubbles. Salt, cocoa. Full body. Sweet for a IS. Some chilli in the finish, maybe more if it were warmer.

mansquito (4480) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($7): pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma is smoke, seriously roasty malt, very dark chocolate, and some sugar. Taste is quite bitter. Roasted malt is very roasted. Tastes kind of burnt. Has a slight but of booze in the taste. Definitely a sipping beer. Lingering aftertaste.

Gurthnar (3833) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle (fresh). Caramel biscuity and smoky aroma. Lightly fruity and roasted. Almost black colour, small short lasting head. Almost no carbonation apparently. Strength is ostentatiously coming through throughout the beer but well... it is an impy so some alcohol is to be expected. Does not get to an unpleasant level, nor do I get fusels presence. Rather a rich malty profile with loads of different malts. Strong caramel biscuity base with roasted, chocolate and smoked building upon it. Intense, complex and rewarding brew. None to light carbonation, oily texture. Do not get confused by chilli and salt on the label. They provide just barely noticeable layers of flavour to otherwise already excellent beer. Chilli in a peppery note mid-flavour and slightly warm finish where it works well with alcohol, and salt in full chewy mouthfeel. Especially interesting when you pour it a little bit colder and observe how it changes with temperature. Chilli comes from barely noticeable to moderate, heat increases, as does the already full body. Do not share. Drink this alone.

mgajdaczewa (1136) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 25, 2015
W aromacie silna deserowa czekolada, praliny z likierowym nadzieniem, intensywnie i przyjemnie. Podobnie w smaku, czekolada deserowa, trochę paloności, nieco karmelu i wtrętów orzechowych, wystarczająco pełny i dobrze ułożony (nie ma czestego u de molena acetonu i nadmiernej alkoholowości). W ogóle nie czuć dodatków chilli i soli. Kakao owszem. Udane piwo!

Draft @ Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Black with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, pepper. Taste is bitter sweet with stingy pepper, roasted malts, chocolate. Spicy chili chocolate aftertaste. Nice.

jawlo (242) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Aromat: intensywy, czekoladowy likier, truskawki, paloność. Wygląd: barwa czarna, piana beżowa i na początku obfita, później opada, ale pozostawia ładne zdobienie na szkle. Smak: spora słodycz, czekolada i truskawka, średnia palona goryczka oraz spora ostrość na finiszu od paryczek chili. Tekstura: piwo jest treściwie i dość gęste - delikatny likierowy efeket, wysycenie umiarkowane. Ogólne wrażnie: piwo pyszne, świetne połącznie aromatycznego RISa z pikantnymi paryczkami chili, które bardzo dobrze balansują słodycz, a przy tym nie przykrywają podstawowych smaków. Na plus należy również zaliczyć niewyczuwalny alkohol.
