teorn88 (3599) - 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.

Davros (2335) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2015
Pours almost black with copper-tinged highlights. Nose shows chocolate fudge, red chilli, roasted malt, soft coffee notes. The cocoa character is awesome. Flavours include lots of roasted malt, booze, dry cocoa, soft chilli heat and a slight salty aspect. Finishes very dry with an assault from the roast and booze.

mzaar (2053) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2015
Flaska. Helt svart öl med ett moccafärgat skum. Dofter av kakao, lakrits, peppar och rostade toner. I smaken träder så äntligen chillin fram och ger ett intensivt och härligt bidrag till kakao, lakrits och en gnutta kaffe. Avslutas salt. Biter till i eftersmaken. Något tunn kropp, men på det stora hela en njutbar öl. Om man gillar chillie-hetta.

9.8%ABV. Imperial stout. Thin brown head. Color was a inviting stout black. 40ºSRM. Nose was full of savory left over brewer’s yeast, Marmite or Vegemite. Soy umami in the nose with plenty of darkly roasted barley and wheat. Medicinal aroma of ’lo han go" 罗汉果. Pronounced carbonation balances an aggressively alcoholic palate that strangely stuns your palate then allows all the richly bitter flavors of darkly roasted malt melt onto your tongue. The alcohol also helps to vaporize all the beautiful herbal and medicinal flavors of the aformentioned lo han go, honey dates and caramel with a pinch of tobacco and carry them into the back of the throat for an entirely different sensory experience! Quite intriguing. Nice prolonged finish of a measured slow release of bitter hops and burnt toast. Goes on favorites list

Podsumowanie - Takie piwa warto pić!

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.
