Ughsmash (7505) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2013
750mL bottle. Poured near black with a tall, whipped rich mocha head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet chocolate and roasted barley with accents of peaty smoke, vanilla, oak, and toasted chilis.. sweet on the back of the nose with more chocolate, smoke, and nutty notes.. great! The flavor found chocolate, dark, chewy bread, and smoked malt at the core, with more tart smoke, cumin, and building chili warmth around.. kind of tangy on the long, spicy, tasty finish. Medium-bodied and very dry on the palate.. tangy and almost metallic feeling on the sides and finish.. overall well-balanced and mightily enjoyable!

ebone1988 (1035) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is lots of pepper, some cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, smoke. Appearance is dark dark brown, brown head, poured pretty thick. Taste is deep roasted malt, pepper, coffee, not much else, robust malt maybe. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light carbonation, pepper and coffee aftertaste. Overall, this one is pretty disappointing.

koleminer20 (1863) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2016
330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. Thanks, I guess. The pour is a thick and oily black with a thin ring of dark khaki head and some pretty Spotify lace all over as it falls. The aroma is strange. There is a lot of smoke and pepper heat right up front. There is a little maltiness to it, but it’s really forward on smoke and pepper heat. This should be something I guess. The flavor is, well, very disappointing. There is a metallic malt and a strong pepper, but it falls off after that. The finish is where the smoke comes back in, but it’s light and boring. The mouth feel is thick and heavy. There is a soft, chewy carbonation and a lingeringly light smoke and pepper presence on the back end. It’s interesting, and could be a lot better.

Lubiere (12403) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2016
A deep dark stout with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity dark chocolate malt with light vanilla, light chili, coffee grind, light bourbon barrel notes, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity chocolate malt with light pepper, light grassy hops, coffee grind, musty character, nice and complex. On tap at Mikkeller and Friends, Reykjavik.

Calisky (2384) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 14, 2016
Courtesy of Jaghana. Couleur noire, très légère mousse. Nez grain de café, houblonné résineux, pimenté. Gout de café, grain de café, reglisse, assez houblonné avec forte épices et piment en fin de bouche puis fin grillée. Trop sur le piment a mon gout.

rafax (57) - POLAND - MAY 9, 2016
On tap. Jet black with nice brown head and quite good lacing. Aromas of coffee, little bit chololate and spices. First sips with little heat, then lightly sweet with bitterness in the finish. Medium to full body, creamy with very pleasant mouth feel. Well done!

RickTheRick (882) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2016
Une mousse brune onctueuse pleine de grosses bulles se sauve toutefois rapidement d’une bière noire et opaque. Du cacao est supporté par des notes végétales (piments) et d’autres arômes majoritairement épicés mais parfois sucrés. En bouche, on retrouve sensiblement les mêmes éléments, mais avec une prédominance de la combinaison "chocolat et épices". Un peu de tabac et une longue finale qui picote la langue caractérisent également cette bière singulière.

copestx (43) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - APR 26, 2016
Bottle(s). With fresh corn tortilla tacos. Pours pitch black with a beige head. A perfectly pitched chili aftertaste. Works amazing with real Mex food. Also great by itself.
