At ACBF 2011. Yes, lots of intense aroma. Intense choc. Yes too dry maybe. Vanilla is ok. More dry cocoa. Heat on finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 375ml. It pours a dark brown to black body and a dense, small, tan head. Roasted nose with chocolate, some alcohol and booze, dried fruits and vanilla. Really pleasant. The flavor has chili, vanilla, roasted malts, booze and chocolate, leading to a roasted, lightly chili burning finish. Full body. A bit unbalanced I think, but pleasant and tasteful, and sure nice. 130504

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 6.6%. Good roasted aroma, hint of mild smoke. Black colour, seems hazy. Big stable brown head. The flavour starts off roasted, and quickly turns to chili. Has a good chili burn, distinct, but not unpleasantly strong. I do not taste the barrel much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375mL bottle, pours black with a small brown head. Aroma is a mix of chili pepper, vanilla and cocoa -- certainly more vanilla and cocoa presence than the regular base beer. Flavour brings out a similar combo of all of them, with the vanilla and cocoa showing up at first, then the spicy chilli peppers kick in leaving a lingering chili note. There is a noticeable woody character as well. Pretty solid stuff, but I prefer the base beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this at Alvinne CBF 2011. Pitch black color. Smell caramel, roasty, chocolate, coffee, nuts, vanilla. Taste also has a lot of the same characters as the aroma has, but especially chili peppers. I absolutely taste those, and I don’t like it. Very weird this beer.
