dfearnley (1184) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle to pint glass Cocoa, milk, coffee, and chili aromas. Pours a dark black with a thin, dark tan mottled head with moderate retention. Taste is coffee, molasses, soy, bread, then changing to a sourness and ending with roast wood and grassy bitterness. Much later, as the bitterness recedes a nice warmness arises in the mouth. I can’t say that the almond milk, beans and avocado leaves make much of an appearance, but it doesn’t really matter much as this is quite good.

bursprak (1230) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle. Pitch black pour with a fairly dark tan head. Loads of roast, coffee, light heat, chillies, green peppers, toasty nuts. Ok!

Maybe I got a duff bottle but this was as gross as licking a dog’s nuts. Deeply astringent with more than a touch of Baby Bio about it.

AgentAle (1046) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
Aroma is mocha, vanilla bean, espresso, chocolate and almond. Deep rich malts to boot. Taste is again rich and complex malts complete with caramel and chocolate. A light hop presence here that is well balanced and fitting. Appearance is black with a dark brown head that retains very well. Great beer.

Iznogud (1461) - CROATIA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml from Svijet Piva, Zagreb. Pours dark brown with lasting brown head. Chocolate aroma. Roasted malts, chocolate, beans, bitter finish with hint of chilli. Complex, medium to full bodied. Looking at the ingredients list I was a bit sceptic but turns out its interesting and successful experiment.

corkyrory66 (861) - BELGIUM - APR 23, 2015
Spice/herb et autres fumures avec – accrochez-vous solidement – du lait d’amandes, du cacao, du chili (5 sortes différentes!!!), des fèves noires et des feuilles d’avocat !!! Avec tout cela 5 malts et 3 houblons... On croit rêver ! Étiquette au design plus que dérisoire. Couleur noir intense, d’une opacité complète. Mousse brun tournant à la rouille (???), épaisse et crémeuse. Arômes de feuilles mortes écrasées, cire de meuble, cuir tanné, piment vert, carton mouillé. 1ère bouche veloutée sur un mélange étrange de piments et feuilles de betterave. Arrière-bouche sans aucune tenue, ni équilibre, mais bien maltée. 2ème où le piment passe en avant, avec le chili (pardon les chilis, voire les hot chili peppers …) Arrière-bouche tout à fait déséquilibrée (on le serait pour moins !!). 3ème mieux intégrée avec du malt chocolat et brun. Arrière-bouche longue, correcte. Longueur qui dément immédiatement la 3ème bouche, avec une fumée légère, du piment, des feuilles d’acacia, et des épices. Jambes assez collantes. Levure très médiocre. Alcool correct, mais il ne sait où donner de la tête … il y a trop de choses disparates. Finale qui part complètement en carafe. CONCLUSION : quelle débauche d’ingrédients pour un résultat plus que chaotique !!! Vraiment pas une bière de référence … et une surcote incroyable !!!

Desverger (3612) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 20, 2015
Bottle from Toft Vin, Copenhagen - pours black with a brown head. Aroma and taste is a mix of dark roasted malts, chocolate, with some peppery and chilli running through it, some other spices and herbal notes, interesting brew.

b3shine (6509) - Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2015
Draft to taster. Looks good; a slightly translucent dull black with foamy beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, mild roast and chocolate, and mild spices (both heat and non). Tastes Iike it smells, but less balanced. Little to no chocolate, and way more bitter. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and bitter. Overpriced and underwhelming.
