Black color with ivory head. Spicy aroma, pepper and coriander. At palate spicy flavour is stronger than hop bitterness.

Lilja (2275) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2015
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, svart peppar, rostade toner, svagt kaffe, mjölkchoklad med toner av svartvinbär och lakrits. Fruktig, rund och len, torr, annorlunda smaker, lätt kropp men fyllig, tydlig beska med smak av citrus och grapefrukt. Spännande!

12oz bottle at IL Santo Bevitore pours a water deep brown with some spitty white head. Nose has some toast and some clear black peppercorn, dried leaves, raisin, pencil lead. Flavor has malt, some molasses, bread dough, light pepper, a little weak coffee. Watery finish. Everything can be amped up.

thirstyrabbit (1536) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. BB 25.11.16. Dark body, medium to small head. Timid aroma with dark roast and vague hops. Taste is kind of bland. Since the label says it has pepper in it and depicts a drawing of witch burning I was preparing myself for a really extreme spicy beer. Not the case. Almost no pepper found. Well, if I know what too look for then I can detect minuscule amounts of pepper. Hoppiness is barely adequate for the style. Despite all that it’s still a pretty nice and easygoing dark ale, just not hoppy/spicy enough to be called a pepper BIPA. Might be a disappointment to some.
