50 cl bottle, shared with one friend. This is an awesome imperial stout! Dark notes of chili, licorice, chocolate, toasted malt. Just a fantastic beer!

Keg at Craft Beer Co, Islington, London. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a small beige head on top. Sweet, roasty, malty, chocolate aroma. Tastes similar, rich, sweet, roasty, malty, chocolate, chilli. Lovely stuff.

Zapach: jak bajka - dominuje czekolada i wanilia, sprawiając, że jest to jeden z atrakcyjniejszych dla mnie aromatów piwnych; Wygląd: mroczne, jak piekielne czeluści, a piana mieni się złotem, brązami, nawet platyną. Niestety bardzo krótko egzystuje na tafli piwka, by móc się nią wyjątkowo nacieszyć; Smak: wstęp zapewnia podobną zabawę, co aromat, a dopiero po chwili język i przełyk rozgrzewa chili, które zdaje się maskować alkohol. Niestety, będąc wrażliwym na smak alkoholu (a także nie lubiąc go), po którymś łyku z kolei zaczynało mnie powoli to nudzić i zniechęcać. Niestety jest to często domeną ciężkich stoutów i porterów, więc spodziewałem się takich wrażeń. Polecam!

50cl bottle, enjoyed with 3 more friends (it was a good idea). Pours black with brown head. The aroma is a good warning...there are also chocolate notes, what makes an interesting mix. Quite spicy, I remember me and my friends looking at each other like...wow! Still it is possible to taste the chocolate and even some coffee in there. The palate is obviously warm, but sweet at the same time. Mouthfeel is full, carbonation ok. My first chili beer, not bad at all. And was very funny to drink it xD

mateuszk (824) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle. Black, oily, beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, licorice, hint of chili and coffee. In taste chocolate, some coffee roasted with distinct chili spiciness, medium bitter finish. All well mixed, chili is there but is not overwhelming the beer. Full bodied, oily texture, low carbonated. Well done.

Aromat po otwarciu butelki zwala z nut: słodka mleczna czekolada, z nutami wanilii - czekoladowy deser. Po przelaniu do szkła, niestety zaczyna dominować lukrecja i anyż, zapach ten jest na tyle intensywny, że przypomina cukierki na ból gardła z dzieciństwa. W smaku jest już przegięcie! O ile po pierwszych dwóch, trzech łykach mogłem stwierdzić, że dominują słody palone i wyraźna popiołowość, z nuta lekko kwaskowatej kawy i kakao, to po kolejnych palenie gardła przez chili pozbawiło mnie jakiegokolwiek czucia smaku. To piwo nie jest na krawędzi... krawędź zniknęła dawno za horyzontem! Ilość papryczek przytłacza i obezwładnia., po każdym łyku zostajemy z piekielnym paleniem w gardle i charakterystycznym rozgrzewaniem w przełyku.

Big taste of liquorice - not a flavour in strong measures that I like... Tastes like medicine Rated by BrewTom

Beergaard (202) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 13, 2015
Thick and pitch black beer with a nice roasted head - looks beautifull. The nose is dominated by tons of sweet and salty licorice - very intense. Tastewise the licorice is dominatin as well, nearly a bit too domintaing, but there is also noticable traces of chili, vanilla, coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. The addition of chili is quite subtle subtle and well ballanced and thus gives the beer a nice edge. Good beer - not for the faint hearted. (4) EDIT: Gets a bit dank in length - the licorice is simply to overpowering which makes the addition of both chili, vanilla,coffee and chocolate a bit redundant. (3,6)

Del solidissimo birrificio danese Hornbeer, questa splendida imperial stout č difficile da dimenticare. Scura scurissima quasi nera con la sua bella schiuma marrone compatta, il caffč, il cioccolato, i sapori tostati la rendono super, anche se non proprio estiva, anche per la gradazione di 10%. E’ ovviamente dolce con una tendenza finale al secco dato dalle spezie, chili appunto. Ottima.
