3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Kolsvart med ljusbrunt skum! Fyllig och en del kolsyra! Doften och smaken är kaffe choklad och lite het chili! Grym öl!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Bottle, at Patrick’s. It’s more or less black, topped by a small, dense, light tan head. The aroma is roasted and chocolatey, with a faint touch of chilli and licorice. Some sweetness in the flavor, with licorice, some chili and lots of mocha. It’s lightly chili warming on the palate, full bodied and soft carbonation. Long finish with a good blend of mocha and chili. 130919
