rob6239 (678) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2015
From bottle. Dark brownish-black in colour, little head. Oily in glass. Taste was strong with both chocolate and the chili pepper but I thought they competed with each other

olliejobbins (1571) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2015
1/3 pint at CBC Clapham a week or 2 ago. Dark black pour with brown head. Aroma is chocolate, dark malts, licorice and herbs/green pepper. Nice smooth texture. Dry and bitter chocolatey initial taste followed by a bit of vegetal funk from the chilli. Not spicy, more smoked pepper.

Alpha10 (499) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2015
2015/12/15 - Pours jet black with a thick, frothy, tan head that slowly reduce and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is chocolate, light vanilla, coffee roast, licorice, chili peppers and light molasses. Taste starts with coffee roast and chocolate, followed by vanilla and licorice and finish with chili peppers and sweet molasses. Mouthfeel is heavy and slick with sharp carbonation. Finish is spicy, moderately sweet, dry and slightly warming. Really nice balance between sweet, spicy and bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nische (1509) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget, bought spring 2014. Dark brown with tan head. Sweet aroma with large notes of chocolate, chipotle, some roast and liquorice. Sweetish chocolate taste with dried peppers, liquorice and some light coffee. Mellow for the ABV. Well balanced. I’d like some more dry chili taste in there. Quite dry finish.

Kosmokrator (764) - ITALY - NOV 23, 2015
Nera e oleosa, non eccessivamente carbonata. Avvolgente al naso con sentori di cioccolato, frutti rossi, caramello e lievito; al palato è rotonda e liquorosa, sembra una torta alle ciliegie liquida! Cacao, vaniglia e malto si alternano a sentori più acidulo/dolciastri di frutti di bosco e zucchero a velo e lasciano poi spazio al finale pungente dove il peperoncino fa piazza pulita. Incredibile!

Nice head, pours black. Aroma is chilli and vanilla, very pleasant. But what suprised me, is that you can really feel chilli mixed with chocolate in taste, what causes, that this beer is spicy. You can also feel chilli in aftertaste. Great!

yourilevesque (907) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2015
Une bière d’un noir de Chine est surmontée d’une mousse dense, épaisse et indestructible. Malgré l’épaisse couverture de mousse, les arômes de chili parviennent jusqu’à mon nez avec une détermination remarquable. Malgré les proéminentes arômes de chili, une torréfaction importante est présente et la bienvenue. Je perçois aussi quelques notes de vanille dont je questionna la pertinence dans une bière si pimentée. En bouche le corps est très agréable et même très moelleux malgré le piquant du piment. Une expérience sensorielle qui propose de jolies contradictions. Le piment est encore ici très agressif mais pas déplaisant. Belle longueur (!) elle se partage facilement.
