COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine Robert DeNiro sitting in your darkened parlour near the fire in his Louis Cyphre persona smoking a Tuscan cigar. This may be the beer with which to save (or lose) your soul. Dried fruit flavors entwined with smoky pepper and licorice embossed on roasty malt sweetness open on your tongue as the slow warmth of chilis creep up on your tongue and throat, finishing in an herbal smoke ring flourish.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2012
Jet black colour, dissipating beige head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, mocha, tobacco, light smoke. Flavour roasted malts, alcohol, light acidic, smoke and quite a bit of spicy heat. The chili pepper is mostly noticeable as some heat in the back of the throat rather than a distinct flavour. Finish is coffee and chili pepper.
Can imagine this beer to be nice next to spicy burritos
(From 355mL -12 fl oz- bottle @ tderoeck’s place. Thanks for sharing!)

Very very tasty. A lot of flavor with a light body and all around delicious. Surprisingly so.

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Grape and Gourmet, VA Beach 12oz ($2): Pours black with a creamy beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, and a bit of pepper. Taste is not as thick of spicy as would be expected, but the body is really nice and velvety. Taste is more traditional roasted malt and chocolate porter at the front and then it gets into the pepper aspect toward the finish. Some minor sweetness, which I guess is the fruit flavor they speak of, along with a hint of anise. Pretty good, but I was expecting quite a lot.

12 oz bottle from Bhensonb. Nose is coffee, caramel, and a hint of peppery capsacin. Black with a small cinnamon head. Flavor is coffee and a light amount of Thai peppery heat. Finishes with light heat. Nicely balanced pepper ale.

Chocolate and pepper aroma with a dark but thin appearance and a spicy kick on the taste and on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Dark, dark brown colored pour. Small ring of off-white bubbles. No lacing. Caramel and vanilla aroma. Taste is a bitter chocolate with hints of vanilla. Not really that spicy, but you can tell there are peppers in there after awhile in the throat. Decent, but not a wow beer. A little on the thin bodied side of things.
