Bottle from Plovmand, thanks! Strange and yet enticing aroma of chocolate, coffee, tobacco and ash. Even some ashtray-like notes but surprisingly they fit in really well with the whole. In the flavour that tobacco&ash mix transforms into a subtle, smoky chipotle note that wanders the tongue all the way down into the throat, being flanked from both sides at the same time by an amazingly soft, malty mixture of coffee and chocolate, culminating in a spicy but not overbearing finish. Frankly, I rarely dig beers with chilli but this one had me stupefied. Amazing beer.

33cl bottle. Pours black with a huge foamy dark beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, bitter coffee, light alcohol, some smoked and vegetal note. Similar taste with smoke flavors more pronounced, almost smoked meat like, bold roastiness, ground coffee, bitter chocolate, light final chilly spiciness. Good bitter finish. Oily mouthfeel, medium body, light carbonation. Very good.

Pedrens (164) - SPAIN - FEB 15, 2015
Botella. Marron oscuro opaco. Espuma marron claro de buena formacion y persistente. Aroma a chocolate,avena, alcohol, malta tostada con un fondo de chipotle bastante potente. En boca tiene dulzura media, chocolate, avena, con toques a malta tostada y chipotle al final, no demsiado duradero. Me sorprende q tenga solo 6,6 grados, si no lo supiera diria q tiene mas. Textura cremosa, algo sedosa, completa. Carbonatacion baja. Es buena birra y el toque final de picnate esta en su punto. Aunque esperaba algo mas quizás.

Rich, dark, and roasty with a hint of smoky spice hinting at chipotle peppers. Pretty awesome.

cervmagpt (436) - PORTUGAL - FEB 12, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 12B, adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: hop floral aromas that slowly fade with time, mixed with a roasted background. hints of spicy notes and a pepper-like aroma. APPEARANCE: almost black color and opaque. medium moussy and brown head with good retention. TASTE: average floral hop flavours with a background of roasty malt and a pepper flavour. low bitterness with a semi-dry and hot (from the pepper) finish that stays on the throat. PALATE: medium body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: a very interesting and different porter-like brew, with an additional "hot" character.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks Stas & Vova. Black with tan head. Deep roast, earth, slightly smoky and a little maple aroma, woodsy, bitter, a little dry and smoky taste. Full body, a little spicy finish, a little syrupy, date honey aftertaste.

Tsekouratos (492) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - FEB 1, 2015
330 ml bottle at Bites&Pints, Athens Greece. Pitchblack color with a dark brown head. Aroma is coffee and some pepper heat. Taste coffee and chocolate with some heat, with sticks to your neck as the beer warms up. The body is medium, maye a little too thick for the alcohol, with medium carbonation.
