Thanks, Chris! This is surprising from Jester King. Nose is nice whiskey with a bit of coffee. Flavor falls with too much chili. Medium chewy body.

Shared by raveskdr. Thanks Chris.
The beer is black with a quarter inch of beige crema head. The aroma offers roast, chocolate, molasses. The flavor is roasty and chocolate forward, followed by a zesty bite with a touch of hops. Medium to full bodied with relatively high carbonation. Overall, this was pretty tasty.

Bottle @ Armin’s bachelor party. Thanks Caleb! Pours a dark brown appearance with a tan/cream colored head. Kind of murky aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee, whiskey, vanilla, and wood. The flavor is even more so with a few nice notes going on (coffee, chocolate) but the whiskey kind of made it boozy and the peppers just made the thing strange. Fun to try nonetheless.

Jag har druckit några chili-öl tidigare men inga avdem har fallit mig i smaken. Den här däremot gör det, jag upplever hettan som lite upplyftande istället för påträngande och ölen är välbalanserad. Som väntat bär smaken också kraftiga toner av rostad malt och jäst.

Dark brown black colour, tan head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, bell pepper, vanilla and soy sauce. Light sweet flavour, coffee bitter, alcohol and coconut. Light wood, light red berries. Quite light body, surprisingly. Finish coffee, malts, bourbon and milk chocolate. Only a hint of chili.
