No idea what purpose all those extras serve, but man is this good. Gooey black pour. Aromas of roast, chocolate, spice. Smooth mouthfeel, balance. Lovely.

This beer is really black. The head seems like a chocolate syrup. Beer smooth like jazz, creamy with full body and low carbonation. I expected more chili but its well balanced and it has a medium bitterness. You can smell out the avokado but I can’t find it in the taste. Full of chocolate, bready/roasted/smoked aromas. I can only says WOW.

neongolden (598) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
(330ml bottle from Ølbutikken) Pours black with a big frothy dense medium tan head leaving impressive lacework. Aroma reminds me of mole, with dark chocolate and a smoky, savoury and spicy blend of chilies in the foreground. A nutty refried bean note. A little dark malt sweetness. A bit of fresh herbs. Palate has dry unsweetened chocolate powder, some lightly sweet malt core, nutty creamy character in the middle recalls horchata, fresh leafy herbs, finish has an interesting herbal tang along with savoury smoky chili peppers. Just a little spice in the dry powdery smoke aftertaste. Lightish body for style, creamy feel, with soft carb. It’s an interesting version of mole as a beer but I think bigger flavour concentration to match the nose would be ideal.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2015 Draft @ Mikkeller Bar SF on 1/19/15. Pours dark brown in color with slight tan head. Aroma of chills, chocolate, with some sweet almond and smoke. Flavor is chocolate, brown sugar, noticeable but not overbearing chili, and some smoke. Mouthfeel is relatively thin. Very nice flavor profile, although personally I would have enjoyed some more chili pepper heat.

thegreek314 (4) - - JAN 16, 2015 does not count
Sadly the aroma is kind of lacking you gets hints of chocolate & chili. The appearance is beautiful! Nice dark body with a tan head what you expect in a stout. The flavor profile is where it knocks it out of the park. Up front you get a chocolate coffee taste with a nice chili & black bean finish. The little bit of spice adds & the black bean adds more body to it. The mouth feel is a little harsh but it works.

Bottle received from MisoW as part of World Wide Local Swap 2014 -- Black pour with beautiful mocha colored head. Aroma was roast. Flavor was strong bitter coffee and essence of chilies. Thick and fun to drink.
