3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black beer with a huge creamy head. Aroma is chocolaty, later smokey. Medium full mouthfeel, chocolate dominates. Turns into bitter smokiness afterwards. Missing some aspects the ingredients say and also the chocolate is a bit too much. Decent, was expecting something a bit more.

Black beer with brown head leaving lacing. Chocolaty sweet aroma. Drier chocolate flavor. Medium full. Little carbonation. Pretty long and sour finish. Weird, the spices don't come through.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, july 17th 2013. Black body, big brown fading head. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, licorice. Taste is spicy, pretty hot, sweet and full body, with chili peppers, espresso, hints of bacon, considering all the unusual ingredients I find it very well balanced with a smooth palate, cocoa and chili aftertaste. A very interesting brew!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a big, thick, tan head the fades slowly and leaves nice webbing. Love the aroma. Cocoa, chocolate cake, espresso, ash, chilies, black beans, licorice, and some spiciness that I can’t quite identify. Taste is a very odd mix of flavors but I still really like it. Strong ashy flavor at first but then the sweet chocolate and espresso mellow it out. Bitter coffee finish with some wood, black beans and licorice. Very light chili spiciness too. Thick body, foams up a little giving a very full mouthfeel, coating everything. Love this beer. I would buy it often if the price were a bit lower.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pouring a deep black coloured beer with a toffee brown light frothy head. Noses of oak, toast, alcohol (schnaps/tequila), bitter chocolate and coffee aromas. Full bodied with sweet and some bitter notes. Potent and strong, medium oily texture. The finish is well balanced but strong and fading lovely coherently away until at the end you hit a mild spicyness. Excellent!
