teorn88 (3585) - London, Greater London, - OCT 8, 2012
33cl bottle from Utobeer, London. It pours a dark brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma is intense with coffee, roasted matls, licorice, some woody notes. Taste is complex and balanced: bitter and roasty at the beginning with cocoa nibs, coffee beans and wood, then turns into a sour sensation, like sour red berries, with finally turns into the salty finish. Mouthfeel is full with soft/good carbonation. Overall, a superb beer. The chili peppers are a bit hidden by cocoa and salt, but the perfect balance between these different flavours is just mind blowing. Amazing.

Tap at El Bait Shop. Super dark dense pour with a brown head. Chocolate, roasted malts, hint of pepper, and a hint of salt. This is very interesting and tasty. Love it.

Butelka, warka do 09/01/20. Niska, lekko bezowa, drobna, szybko opadajaca piana. piwo chyba klarowne, dosc ciemne wiec trudno ocenic, ale zarazem nie czarne a raczej ciemnobrazowe. aromaty ewidentnie risowe, takie jakie powinny byc, sa sliwki, rodzynki, czekolada, palonosc, kawa - ladnie ulozone. Alkohol w aromacie ladnie schowany. ale w smaku juz nieco inaczej - alkohol z nalozona na niego ostroscia chilli jest dosc ewidentny i to w niekoniecznie fajny sposob. reszta nut z aromatu niby tez wyczuwalna, ale jakos niezbyt intensywnie. obiecanej soli morskiej raczej nie czuc - moze to i lepiej? lekko kwaskowato na palony sposob. malo ciala jak na RISa. nisko wysycone.Sumarycznie - calkiem niezle, przyjemne piwo. ale tylko niezle przez alkohol i brak ciala.

Bottle; pours nearly black with a thin ring of beige head; aroma is chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt with a hint of peppers; taste is coffee and chocolate with hints of salt and peppers; finish is dry with a little bit of bitterness and some chili pepper hints; pretty good and I glad the chili peppers are more of subtle flavor here as it works quite well

Butelka. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, bardzo niska. Aromat kawy, kakao, śliwki, paloność. Smak głównie kawa i kakao. Wyczuwalne również suszone owoce w postaci śliwek i ciemne słody. Piwo pełne, treściwe w ustach. Wysycenie średnie, goryczka wysoka alkoholowa z finiszem lekko gryzącym podniebienie pochodzącym zapewne od papryczek chili.
