Christian (11784) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2013
At Copenhagen Beer Festival 2013 (and several times since then). Black with a small tan head. Aroma of licorice, roasted malt, a hint of ash, and some pepper. Sweet licorice dominated, roasted flavour with pepper notes and a nice spicy heat in the finish

50 cl bottle @ Olutexpo
Aroma has strong licorice notes, some chili peppers, hints of coffee and truffles. Flavour is somewhat spicy with chili pepper notes, some licorice, very dark chocolate and truffles. Finishes with bitter chocolate, slight chili burn and some rubbery tones. Also some distant vegetable notes. Nice anyway.
8+5+8+4+15 = 4.0

Draught @ Pikkulintu
Quite medicine-like. Chili is still on the background and rubbery can be found. Also some tobacco, licorice and ash. Not that nice. 7+5+6+4+15=3.7

Koelschtrinker (12655) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 17, 2013
Schokoladig malziger Antrunk, minimale Schärfe. Schokoladig, sehr intensiv bleibend, sehr würzig. Die Schärfe steigert sich leicht, brotig, lange Nachgeschnack. Sehr gut! 11/12/12/13/8/12

Gerbeer (2350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours black with dark tan head. Aromas of chalk and dark fruit. Flavors of dark coffee, charred peppers, vanilla, and milk chocolate. Good heat at the end - may also be related to the ABV.

Bonne RIS sans plus avec une touche chocolatée plus présente que le chili, manque un peu de complexité mais ça reste assez robuste.

olsvammel (4121) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Sample at SBWF. Powerfull smell with chili, chocolate, coffee and dark bread. Similar taste with a pleasent heat to it. I think they hit a nice level on the chili on this one.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2013
It’s pitch black with a dense nougat head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, light licorice and something spicy that has to be the chili. The flavor has a moderate sweetness and lovely notes of roasted malt, licorice, super light hints of chocolate, and the chili has a very pleasant burn towards and in the finish. Lovely chili stout.

SaintMatty (5897) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle (Stockholm Beer Festival 2013) - Black with a tan head. Liquorice, malt, coffee and chilli in the aroma. Roasted taste wtih plain chocolate and coffee detected. The chilli is particularly noticeable in the finish and leaves a burning sensation at the back of the throat.

alkolas510 (874) - Vänersborg, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2013
Kolsvart med ljusbrunt skum! Fyllig och en del kolsyra! Doften och smaken är kaffe choklad och lite het chili! Grym öl!

mathieuc (2178) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
Body is black and head is beige-ish/dirty. The head doesn’t stay too long and doesn’t leave any real lacing. Aroma is ashy, peppery. Not too enticing. Taste is green peppers, dirty water and a lot of heat. Mouthfeel is watery and awkward. Not really good and definitely subpar as far as chili imperial stouts go.
