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 (186) - 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)

lello4ever (212) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Del solidissimo birrificio danese Hornbeer, questa splendida imperial stout è difficile da dimenticare. Scura scurissima quasi nera con la sua bella schiuma marrone compatta, il caffè, 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.

sharkydodson (525) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 27, 2015
the aroma of caramel, licorice, chocolate, toffee and vanilla... the taste is very rough, caramel and chocolate with notes of licorice, toast, chili and spicy grasses... dry, sweet and very spicy aftertaste...

50cl bottle shared. Pours pitch black with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, bitter chocolate, coffee, red fruits and berries with an acidic component that starts a bit too strong but fades away as the beer warms up. Taste is similar, strong roastiness, coffee and chocolate again, some vanilla, some sweetness, acidic note again, strong bitter finish. Can?t almost feel the chili. Thick creamy mouthfeel, full body, light carbonation. A bit unbalanced.

mtnw (7) - POLAND - FEB 15, 2015 does not count
.5 bottle. Nearly black with brown head. After one minute from pouring no lacing at all.Chocolate, coffee, alcohol, licorice, vanilla, chilli. All of them pretty intense but surprisingly balanced. For many it may be too spicy, for me it’s greatest way(combined with chocolate) to mask alcohol. I will buy another bottle and keep for chocolate-need-day.

scirtes (101) - POLAND - FEB 1, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 500 ml bottle, best before: 12.12.2024. Black, oily, with brown head. Beautiful aroma of dark chocolate, licorice, and hints of pipe tobacco. Distinct chili bitterness, with long aftertaste of chili and chocolate. Very spicy, but interesting beer.

tomekboniek (193) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 27, 2015
03, l w KiK. Barwa: Czarna, nieprzejrzysta, bardzo lepka. W smaku kakao, palone słody, czekolada, wanilia, chilii. Na początku wspaniała słodycz gorzkiej czekolady, wanilii, następnie bardzo piekące posmaki chili i innych przypraw bliżej nieokreślonych. Mocno grzeje przełyk. Bardzo piekące,męczące, ciężko dopić do końca. Mocny, ciekawy, konkretny RIS.
