4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Murky dark brown color with medium creamy light brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruits with some peppery hints. Taste starts with moderate sweet and rich roasted malt, follows by chocolate note and fruity acidity. When beer gets warmer chipotle chili peppers break loose and create warming and tingling spicy mouthfeel, while spiciness is still present in medium bitter aftertaste. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Above excellent...

Iím not normally a fan of chilli beers but this one left me wanting another. Subtle addition to a superb base is probably the reason.

excellent beer, it has a hint of chilli but its not overpowering, it remains in the background, tastes a little like marmite or chilli with rich chocolate also present. Very tasty and a little smoky like an upperclass smog rocket. Thanks for that Stephan. bottle at bottle shop.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Very thick: black and oily.
Smells of roasted malt, black coffee, dark chocolate. Distinct smokeyness.
The taste is heavily roasted malt going towards burnt. Smokey
Iím not getting much of the chili, maybe a bit of heat in the finish.
