Pours a muddy brown with a tan head and aroma of spices and malt. The peppers clearly comes through in the taste, with caramel and sweet malt with a spicy, peppery finish that lingers. Nice brew, the peppers really come through nicely in the finish

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours murky deep brown with a smallish beige head that holds pretty well. Aromas of chewy caramel, biscuit, some toffee and some spice. Wow taste is heavily rye up front. Heaps of spicy notes with toffee, caramel, malty biscuit and maybe some dried fruit. Quite a spicy lingering aftertaste too from the peppercorns. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Awesome beer. Big rye notes all the way through, with the slightest undercurrent of malty sweetness, finishing with a distinct black peppercorn flavor which builds a tingly spiciness on the tip of your tongue as the flavor dissipates. Also easy drinking, I could drink a six pack and thoroughly enjoy each one.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle. Pours a clear, dark copper with a one finger, off-white, bubbly head that fades to a thin film quickly.
Aroma is large with notes of rye and a hint of roasted malts.
Taste is a mild bitter with a peppery taste on the finish.
Medium body and carbonation. Slightly oily mouth feel.
An interesting beer. You get the rye in the aroma and taste with a long pepper after taste. Not bad but not my favorite.

Le gout de poivre est trop puissant et surpasse tout le reste et ce, meme pour un amateur de poivre. L’arome est plaisante.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A dark brown beer with a dense, medium and beige head. The nose is weird, a strongly ginger, roastiness and citrusfruits, also other spices. Taste of bready malts, then the ginger is dominating and burning taste is there into the end, also peppery spices and sweet malts. Medium bodied, smooth to drink before strong spices. Not very succesfully beer, strong ginger together with the spices are dominating too much.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at the parentals with Nik da Sneak. Pour is clear amber with a big cream-colored head and great lacing. Big spice, malty, bready, caramelly, almost coffee-like, husky, stale doughy, grassy aroma. Taste is huge overdone spice, stale homebrew taste, malty cardboard, dead leaves, and tea with a light spicy finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Pretty bad.
