3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a thick, opaque black with a light brown head. Sweet vanilla dominates the nose atop some sweet roast. Medium body, dry roast, a little alcohol heat, sweet vanilla and quite some chili burn. Hardly any bitterness. Not bad but a little much with Brandy, chili, vanilla and cocoa. Somewhat confusing! 131011

Mikkeller bar, maj 2012: Mycket trevlig doft. Smaken är lätt, lite söt med tydlig chili och vanilj.

Bottled. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, and cocoa. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood, cocoa, roasted malt, and chili, leading to a dry chili and cocoa finish.

Pours black with a small, dense and chocolate brown head. Aroma is thick chocolate and smooth vanilla. Smooth chocolate and vanilla soft. Slight chili bite, rather soft though. Ends bitter, dark roasted and lingering dark malty finish. Ends slight spiced.

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.

Bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro. Cioccolato e vaniglia molto evidenti così come un legno ma un po’ troppo evidente che copre la birra.

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.

ACBF. Hazy brown beer, no real head. Some vanilla and paint tones and then mild chocolately malt and warming chilli. A little too much of the chilli. Not as good as it’s siblings!

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

Pours opaque black with nice brown head.
Aroma is good, cocoa, hints of vanilla, and a touch of roasted malts. The taste isnt for me, just too much going on, some cocoa, a good amount of chili, cant really find much vanilla or oak. i think i would have liked the beer sans one or two ingredient.s carbed a bit low as well.
