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.

Une bière riche mais peut être un peu trop "herbée" bien mais pas top à goûter les autres volumes

(12oz bottle) Pours a dark brown (near black) body with spare tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, baby diapers, light coffee, and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, light pepper, and raisins.

dagimp (799) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2011
On tap at the Institute Philly. Pours a deep black with some brownish head. Mild aroma of coffee. Mouthfeel is dry and moderately thick. Definitely more of a stout than a porter. Taste is very peppery. I didn’t taste much chilli, only black pepper. For a pepper beer it was pretty decent. I doubt I’d get it again though.

after4ever (6563) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2011
12-oz. Pours black and nearly still. Essentially headless. Mild roasty nose with a bit of dark chile pepper lurking around the edges. Roasty mid-palate with a little bit of kick at the end. This is essentially an unfinished beer, and it’s hard to tell whether the lack of flavor complexity is because the bubbles aren’t there to wake things up, or because they made a mediocre porter and threw peppers in in an attempt to liven up the proceedings. Disappointing after the promise of the last FTB.

suprchunk (2528) - 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.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2011
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours an opaque black with a tiny amount of carbonation that is quick to fade to nothing. Smells of cocoa and dark chocolate with a small hint of pepper evident. The heat from the peppers is immediately evident upon tasting. There is also cocoa along with some roasted malt. Hop bitterness is there as well on the finish. A nice lasting warming in the throat from the peppers. Overall this is a pretty unique beer. I thought it was just ok, though.

thewolf (11383) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Bierzwerg.de.
Pours black with a small, thin, beige film head. Aroma is sweet, dark chocolate, light tar, some roasted malts and a soft vegetable note. Medium carbonation, fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour is quite sweet, kinda sugary, mildly roasted. Finishes off with a medium, rather firm chili bite.
