On tap at The Pub, Oslo. Lots of dark chocolate, cherries, liquor, then some warming chili underneath. Very sweet, very chocolaty, more of a dessert than a beer.

Whoa this is weird stuff. Taste is mint, liquorice, chocolate and spices. After taste is warm from the chili and kinda reminds of old danish bitters. Either you like it or hate it, but do try it out.

daje (2450) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
On tap at ōltorget Mathallen, march 21st 2014. Black body with a nice brown head. Aroma of chocolate, cooked vegetables, salt licorice. Taste is sweet, light coffee notes, cabbage, some heat from the chili but it really dissolves through the not-so-nice sweet offtaste. I really donít get the high ratings for this beer, I think itís just a mess of different ingredients that donít match, resulting in a sweet overcooked vegetable soup. Judging from the scores itís probably me, I just donít get this beer, couldnít finish it.

Bamsen78 (3141) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy nearly black with airy tan head. Clear aroma of chocolate, malt, coffee, and caramel, with touches of chilli in the long nose. Sweetish flavour of chocolate, caramel malt and coffee, with hints of liquorice and pronounced, but not aggressive, notes of chilli towards the finish. Lingering, spicy aftertaste with notes of liquorice and coffee. Creamy mouthfeel Well-balanced and enjoyable. Nice.

POLK (2219) - HÝrning, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2014
A beer you can not drink a bottle of. Interesting but too many different flavors. Scent and taste of licorice and chocolate. Mysterious Christmas spicy beer.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2014 Aromat: kakao, czekolada, palone słody, alkohol, wanilia, korzenne przyprawy, kawa, chmiel, zresztą czego tu nie ma ! W smaku najpierw słodycz gorzkiej czekolady, przyprawy korzenne, wanilia, lekko piekące posmaki chili, koniec wytrawno goryczkowy, lekko alkoholowy, grzejący przełyk. Zbilansowane jak diabli. pyszne.

HoppyBudgie (692) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
Pours black, tan head. Nose is fudge, chilli. Flavour is cool and very licoricy, I typically donít care for it but it worked here. Vanilla, licorice. A nice example of a powerful stout but not a icorie fan

PapaVillum (439) - 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!
