4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
.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 itís greatest way(combined with chocolate) to mask alcohol. I will buy another bottle and keep for chocolate-need-day.

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.

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.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle 0,5l. Pours nice black with a beige head. Aroma is something Iíve never experienced in a beer, unfortunately not in a good way. Smells like Chili, liqorice and chocolate mixed, I like those things separately but in this cocktail I find the mix most disturbing. Taste is a bit better, mostly chocolate coming through and finishing with a lot of lingering pepper/chili.

Bottle. Opaque black brown beer with a beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, dried fruit, chili, chocolate, coffee and licorice. Flavor is spicy with notes of caramel, chili, licorice, dried fruit, chocolate and spices. Ok, a bit to much spice aroma.

Spicy aroma with lot of anise. Taste reallly weird - start is dominated by anise and other spiсies then you can feel chocolate and after all there is stron enough chili aftertaste. Interesting for a beergeek.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a black-brown colour with hardly any highlights. Creamy, bubbly head, mocha-coloured, long lasting and thick foamy lacing. Big cocoa and chocolate nose. The taste is not as chocolaty, but with roasted malts, licorice, grass and the chili powder showing in the finish. Kind of messy balance at first, but with some breathing, chocolate come out to help the flavours. The is notes of rustiness that kill the rest. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth and this goes down very nicely for 10% ABV. Wish the taste was better balanced. The best before date is in 2023, so maybe the other bottles I have might get better with time.

Thick, jet black pour with light brown pour. Aroma of burnt malts, black coffee, molasses, licorice. Molasses, licorice, burnt bread, coffee, rum. Lingering pepper heat. Too boozy and spicy. Whoa.
