Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2012
In bottle thanks Ben. Pours a very dark brown colour with a decent tan head. Aroma of chillies, chocolate, vanilla and Bourbon. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a chalky mouth-feel. A nice chilli bite with lingering cacao nibs and alcohol. Lovely.

Shaney (2424) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2013
Ölig, beihnahe schwarzes Bier mit dunkelbraunem Schaum. Ein röstmalziges Aroma samt Kakao, Kaffee, Zartbitterschokolade und Creme Brulee. Halbtrockener Antrunk. Die Aromen kommen eins zu eins im Geschmack wieder, wobei die Chilinote einen Tick zu scharf ist. Klingt röstig-pfeffrig aus. Herausragendes Bier!

Had this one at the ACBF 2011. Brown, black colored brew. Malty aroma, roast, vanilla, coffee. Also in flavor. Sweetness too and boozy.

angel77 (2228) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 9, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl. De el lúpulo, en el momento 09-04-2014. color negro intenso con espuma bastante oscura y persistente..... Aromas a maderas tostadas y quemadas con toques de especias, chocolate y ligero café, aumentando todo ello a medida que va calentando ...... Cuerpo medio con 6.6 vol bastante fácil de beber con paso por boca bastante cremoso y fino, con tonos de licor acentuándose al calentar...... Sabores de quemados y tostados dominados por especias suaves, notandose la vainilla sin problema, seguida de un ligero cacao. Sensación de licor seco y con toques de madera presente y acabando con picante seco y terroso del chile bastante intenso y que permanece en boca durante un buen rato. Increíble cerveza, para repetir sin duda. Una de las grandes.

RasmusOtt (2163) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2011
Pours black with a chocolately brown head. Aroma is smoke, sweet wood, roasted malts, vanilla, milky chocolate, toasted bread, spice and some coffee. Taste is coffee, cocoa beans, vanilla, strong striking chili burn, smoke, dark bitter chocolate and coffee. A really big beer with a low ABV. I think this beer should be shared and enjoyed over a strong mexican dinner!

Nocturne (1716) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
375ml bottle. Black with a brown head. Deep, powerful aroma of roasty coffee and dark chocolate. Also some cherry and blackberry fruitiness with barrel notes at the edges. On the tongue an initial wash of chocolate drops out abruptly to be replaced by pepper heat. Vanilla only shows up fleetingly and sporadically. It hits a lot of the right notes but does feel pretty muddled at times. Then again it’s must be a hard task to make a beer with these elements come together right, so well done to Mikkeller on this occasion.
