Bottle @ ACBF 2011. Pitch black coloured. LIght brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, sweetness, vanilla and light smoke. Flavour of smoke, chocolate, roastr, vanilla, coconut. Small chilibite. Medium to full bodied. Ends on a smoked and roasted note, where the smooth chili takes over. Nice.

Maria (10149) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2013
It’s pitch black with a creamy, dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, brandy, Oak, vanilla and chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, licorice, vanilla, brandy and the chili burn comes towards the finish and lasts a while after...

Ratman197 (9806) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2014
375 ml green bottle poured a translucent dark reddish brown nearly black with a small lasting brown head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, light vanilla and a hint of chipotles. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and light chipotles with a smooth lingering chocolate finish.

Benzai (8226) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2011
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.

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2011
Bouteille @ ACBF 2011. Brune foncée/noire, mousse moka. Arôme est assez subtile surtout quand on considère le volume d’alcool. Cette bière arrive donc a développer un nez unique et appréciable d’où se dégage le tonneau, une douceur de vanille et chocolat qui sont évidement plus présents que dans la version régulière de BA quoique la vanille était un peu en retrait. Ce qui m’ a vraiment surpris et enthousiasmé sur cette bière est le palais. Là, surprise lorsque l’on note les épices qui se dégagent. Vanille est douce, un peu de malt fumé, fèves de cacao donnent une épaisseur à la bière et tjrs ce fini un peu pimenté qui est tout bonnement formidable et accompagne parfaitement un palais qui garde une présence de levure belge. Même après dégustation on garde des éléments de chocolat et piment qui sont intenses sans pour cela être trop piquant, mais assez pour se faire présent après quelques gorgées d’eau.

Hansen (6602) - Assentoft, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2011
Colour is black, has a light brown head, fully lasting. Dark aroma, chocolate, dry cocoa. Flavor is heavy sweet, has a moderate bitter finish, chili-hot too. Creamy texture and soft carbonation.

mcberko (6441) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
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.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2011
375 ml bottle. BBE 26.1.2017.
Pours a pitch black colour with a thick beige head. Aroma of birch leaves, dark chocolate and vanilla. Actually reminds me of sauna. Flavour of roasted malts, vanilla, birch leaves, dark chocolate, smooth hops and a slightly burning chili finish. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a dry, warming, chili finish with some vanilla notes. Great, not too much chili here.

Svesse (6147) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with lasting, creamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, oak wood, black rye bread and a touch of cognac. Malty, roasted taste with dark chocolate, cacao, coffee, vanilla, dark bread, tobacco, oak wood, a touch of cognac and a balanced cacao bitterness in the finish. The chilli stays in the background at the first sip, but grows over time, and gets quite hot after a while. Slightly more than medium body, mainly dry but with some sweetness coming through. Quite complex and interesting. Still very well balanced. Very nice beer.
