3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Black color, with dark brown head, not persistent. Mild aroma of sweet chocolate, and light roasted malts, covered by something that seems ripe apples. Medium body; with the dark chocolate flavor there is a light fruity sweetness that seems out of place; the chili pepper is present in mild form, providing a gentle feeling, comparable to the alcohol in other beers; medium alcohol feeling, that may be given by the whiskey cask.
Chaotic beer, lacking of cohesion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid, medium sized brown head with very good retention and some spotty lace.Appears to be black in color. Heaven knows its actually brown, sheesh. nose of chocolate, light smoke, pepper and roast. Body is almost medium, lil oily, soft carbonation. Thin whisky flavors along with light roasted pepper notes, light chocolate and woody otes. Fleeting, smokey roasty finish. Really thought the regular version more enjoyable. Bottle from statelineliquors.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pitch black with a thick mocha head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has rich chocolate, a hint of dark fruit, and mildly boozy whiskey notes. Flavor has bitter bakers chocolate, a subtle hint of dark fruit, and mildly smoky roastiness with just a hint of oak and a hint of peppery burn. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, very roasty, bitter finish that has just a hint of smoky burn. Interesting beer!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12.7 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. The head stays around a little while, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like smoky whisky, dark chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of chilies. It tastes like bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, smoky/peaty whisky, oak, and some light chilies. The chili flavor does get stronger as the beer warms up, but it’s not close to being overpowering at all. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s a bit creamy and coating, and has moderate, soft carbonation. It certainly goes down easy enough. I think it’s a pretty good brew. It’s pricey at $11.99 a bottle, but I’d probably buy it again at that price.
