Kosmokrator (677) - ITALY - NOV 23, 2015
Nera e oleosa, non eccessivamente carbonata. Avvolgente al naso con sentori di cioccolato, frutti rossi, caramello e lievito; al palato è rotonda e liquorosa, sembra una torta alle ciliegie liquida! Cacao, vaniglia e malto si alternano a sentori più acidulo/dolciastri di frutti di bosco e zucchero a velo e lasciano poi spazio al finale pungente dove il peperoncino fa piazza pulita. Incredibile!

Nice head, pours black. Aroma is chilli and vanilla, very pleasant. But what suprised me, is that you can really feel chilli mixed with chocolate in taste, what causes, that this beer is spicy. You can also feel chilli in aftertaste. Great!

Une bière d’un noir de Chine est surmontée d’une mousse dense, épaisse et indestructible. Malgré l’épaisse couverture de mousse, les arômes de chili parviennent jusqu’à mon nez avec une détermination remarquable. Malgré les proéminentes arômes de chili, une torréfaction importante est présente et la bienvenue. Je perçois aussi quelques notes de vanille dont je questionna la pertinence dans une bière si pimentée. En bouche le corps est très agréable et même très moelleux malgré le piquant du piment. Une expérience sensorielle qui propose de jolies contradictions. Le piment est encore ici très agressif mais pas déplaisant. Belle longueur (!) elle se partage facilement.

500ml bottle. Pours an insane amount of frothy creamy brownish head, quite thick. Has a very deep dark brown, pretty much pitch black. Lacing is fine. Aromas are a little bit smokey. Some chocolate and faint licorice hints. Flavours are a bit sweet at first with the chocolate and licorice notes as well as hints of coffee but has some pretty good spiced notes mainly in the finish. Nice warming sensation on the palate. Should’ve kept this one for the winter months.

Quite herbal, and woody. Strong chili arom and flavour, but no heat. Subtle cocoa, and vanilla with a lot of char. Oily mouth feel, regular carb. Finish is highly bitter, and quite astringent. Hints of heat in the end with big licorice, herbs and strong earthiness.

LCBO release. Chile strong in the finish. Stout base is oK. not bad drinkability. Black with lasting head.
