stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - JUN 18, 2012
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours a pitch black beer with no head. The aroma is malt and chili. The flavor is chili. The palate is only hot chili burn. Overall an undrinkable beer, it makes no sense with the high level of chili.

fonefan (34222) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2012

Draught @ [ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012 ] @ Spartas Lokaler, Faelledparken in Osterbro, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Clear dark black brown colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, chocolate, sweet chili fruit notes. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, chocolate, sweet chocolate and malt. And then it comes ... a huge chili burn that takes forever to go away ! Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. IMO very fun, but undrinkable for more than a few sips ....[20120511]

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2012
Draught at CBC, shared with KnutAlbert. Naked surface, near-black body. Smell of cocoa chocolate and chilli. Burning chilli down the throat, little else in the flavour character. Not my kind of stuff (Copenhagen, 11.05.2012).

Dashimus (218) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
Cask. Pours black with a dark tan head. Aroma is dominated by chocolate and sweet confectary. Taste is overpowering chilli which removes chocolate or sweetness. Spice is longlasting and powerful. Great beer but very acquired taste.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - MAY 28, 2012
Tap at CBC shared with Beerbiker and evil stepdad. Black look with a small brown head. Nice liquirice and roasted malt aroma along with fresh dusty chili fruit. Soft liqurice flavor, toffee and sweet chocolate. Its all very well, but over everything is Chili, completly overpowering and burning. The chili lingers for along time. Unbalanced

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Draught at CBC. This beer is a madman in disguise! Oily soft textured black with no head what so ever. Very soft, smooth aroma of licorice, roasted malts, coffee, choco - and then it explodes in your mouth with a chilli overdose overpowering the nice choco and coffeeish backbone. Dry bitter, chilli peppery finish. A no balance-beer. Nice try, but....
