4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 10.0%. Best before 08.07.23. Pours black with a thick khaki/tan head. Good lacing. Sweetish roasted aroma with light notes of chili and coffee. A bit tart, light spicy notes and a faint rubber note. Complex flavour; coffee, chocolate, chili and with a mild chili burn. A hint of vanilla appear as it warms as well as light cloves note, the latter making it a wee bit cloying. Roasted coffee finish, with the chili burn continuing and becoming stronger, and with a mild alcohol burn as well. Overall quite good; nice, complex and balanced, and the chili burn is just the right intensity. 23.07.13.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Huge (chilli) pepper aroma - whole fruits, not just the hot parts, quite fresh. Very smooth palate, oily, but OK carbonation. Roast is daaark. Some fruity esters, and alcohol pushes those spikes up you nose quite effectively. Touch coffee-ey finish from that sweet dark roast, but the chilli pops up too. Itís remarkably balanced, itís just a gentle little warm throb, just about right. Perhaps a bit flat and slick in the mouthfeel? Perhaps an under-rate.
