HoppyBudgie (685) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Pours black, tan head. Nose is fudge, chilli. Flavour is cool and very licoricy, I typically don’t care for it but it worked here. Vanilla, licorice. A nice example of a powerful stout but not a icorie fan

PapaVillum (390) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2014
50 cl, flaske, 10,0 % ABV, modtaget i.f.m. besøg på Hornbeer i Kirke Hyllinge via laboko - tak! 5. juli 2014. Fuldstændig sort olie med lille mørk moccafarvet skumtop på maksimalt 1 cm. Denne svinder til kant og overfladen i løbet af få minutter. Syrlig og bitter aroma af kaffebønner, kaffe, vanille. Ypperlig smag, hvor chilien træder i karaktér uden at overdøve noget. På én og samme gang sødlig, bitter, halvstærk, fristende og forførende. Et værk af en mesterbrygger. Chokoladen, kaffen, lakridsen, chilien, den brændte malt - det hele kan smages eller rettere: duftes/fornemmes gennem munden i denne Imperial Stout. Det skarpe element, den tilsatte chili, ligger i oplevelsen og overrasker én, gør én nysgerrig og dernæst skaber glæde. Kaffe er dog det mere klare element, og er man ikke til kaffe, skal man nok holde sig væk. Mundoplevelsen er tillige over middel - et afdæmpet/nedjusteret indhold af kuldioxid gør det blødt, rundt og fyldigt at drikke den tidligere MegaGrisk. Eftersmagen er lang, sort, bitter og halvskarp af chili-efterdønningerne. Jeg har svært ved at forestille mig en bedre Imperial Stout med tilsat chili og derfor må dommen være: Spitzenklasse!

Flaska. Svart öl med stort moccafärgat skum som är konstant närvarande. Jag är förtjust i både lakrits och chili. Inte förvånande gillar jag således den här ölen, där framför allt det förra dominerar i både smak och doft. Chilin ligger i bakgrunden och lurar och ger en alldeles perfekt avvägd hetta. I såväl smak som doft hittar också, kaffe, läder och en svag rökigheter sina utrymmen. Mjuk och rund munkänsla, besk och (chili-)het eftersmak. Delikat.

jdobbs (352) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
At first the chili made a good paring with the chocolate but the chili aftertaste ruined it for me. Without the chili I think this would be a very good stout.

Jag är ledsen men detta smakade bara chilipulver. Ingen behaglig öl att dricka.

mikkellund42 (536) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Bottle. Pours opaque black with large lasting brown head. Aroma is very intense with notes of roasted malt, sweet licorice, ground fennel and anise seeds, overripe sweet red apples, bakers yeast, grilled red bell pepper, ammonium chloride and sweet chili. Taste is very bitter, medium to very sweet, light acidic and faint salty. Body is oily and syrupy with soft top faint carbonation. Finish is very long and dominated by sweet licorice and hints of sweet chili, but there is also notes of roasted malt, ammonium chloride, lemon, prunes, yoghurt, yeast and dough. Very rich and complex yet in excellent balance. Perhaps a bit too sweet.

(Bottle). Vaguely smoky aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and a sting of chili. The taste is similar, with flavors of roasted malt, licorice and some chilli. A nice beer!
