Bottled. Pours clear and deep amber with a medium sized off-white to beige head. Aroma of caramel, licorice and herbal notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry with a chili bite. Medium bodied, oily text. and average carb. An OK brew when you like chili and licorice.

Bottle picked up at Barley Wine in Copenhagen & shared in Osaka with other beer lovers. My bottle was also a bit of a gusher. A reddish-brown pour with a chili aroma complemented by some rich licorice notes. The taste is chili, then licorice followed by a hint of sweet caramel malts before you get more chili fire & further hints of licorice. I found it had lots of heat but it wasn’t overpowering. A hit with the rest of the guys. Good enough.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaska från SB. Kastanjefärgad, klar, ganska lågt skum. Söt brödig maltig doft, med torkad frukt, röda bär, sötlakrits och lite stickande chili. Smaken är mycket söt, lite belgisk dubbel med antydningar av sötlaktis, men chilin tar över alldeles för mycket, mycket hetta och inte särskilt välavvägd.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours mahogany in color with very little head or viscosity. Nose is very Abt-like with raisins, caramel, honey, dried fruit. Taste begins innocous enough with similar notes but once swallowed.. Holy fuck, that chili really packs some punch. Soft liqourice notes as well. Barking mad, but very good!!

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber with nice head. Aroma is very nice distinct licorice with some fruit, malt. Taste is overwhelming chili with nice licorice. Interesting ale but a bit over the top. Would probably be better as a single chili.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a bottle at ØK 13. Muddy dark amber body. Spiced aroma of chili and mid-sweet malts. Liquorice flavours at first before the chili part sets in and totally dominating the taste character. Not for me (Copenhagen, 25.05.2013).
