UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Thanks, Ryan! Awesome dark brown pour with a nice thick reddish brown head. Monster roasted pepper and mild smoke nose. Medium slick palate. Taste is slight chipotle heat, roasty....absolutely delicious.

(Draught at "la Capsule" Lille, 30/10/11) This one remind me coffee (roasty?) flavour in mouth, like a smoked sensation. It is a black, cloudy beer, with medium bitterness, soft carbonation, and creamy in mouth, Really spicy and long finish, you’d better keep this beer for the final taste if you want to taste another ones.

mjs (6387) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2011
(Draught at Sorbon, 20111115) The beer poured black. Its head was huge - pouring took some time - and light brown. Aroma had roasted malts, smoke and liquorice. Palate was full bodied and burning (not alcohol burning but chilli burning) with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, coffee, liquorice, chilli pepper, hops, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. The chilli burning was quite intense. A surprisingly good chilli beer.

Wombata (618) - Kobe, JAPAN - NOV 20, 2011
On Tap. Aroma: Rich stout with coffee, chocolate and some smoky roasted red pepper, though I didn’t notice it initially, it showed itself after a while in glass. Palate: With time it gave a bit of a bite, though not too much. Flavor: Sweet coffee and chocolate with a hint of roasted red pepper that, with time, comes out more on the mid-palate and finish to give it a spicy kick. Comments: The flavors work well together and the pepper seemed subtle initially. Even as it warms up and gets a bit spicier, it isn’t overdone. A success.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Draft @ FFF’s Anny Party...pours a dark black, the head on this is out-of-control. Nose is lite on the chili’s with more of a focus on the roasted malts and chocolate notes. Silky mouthfeel, lingering on the tongue...starts with some really nice dark chocolate notes, along with a bit of coffee...BUT THEN, the peppers come through. Wonderfully balanced, the chilis compliment the dark malts perfectly and leave a lingering burn. Admittedly, a full glass was a bit hard to get through, but still a damn fine brew.

glennmastrange (2647) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle. Moderate to heavy bitter chocolate, strong coffee and burnt for the malt, moderate resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with notes of tar, smoke and a whiskey type alcohol, Head is small, frothy, light brown with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is really dark brown, just about black. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, creamy, with a soft to lively carbonation and light capsaisin burn, dry in the mouth and sticky on the lips finish. A very good, bold and rich type beer. The chili burn at the end is a subtle and pleasant surprise.

A very unique porter, had a little bit of spice and was very dark with only a small amount of light to shine through. It’s smelled just like most porters ive had with only a bit of spice in the nose. Overall a good offering from mikkeller wouldn’t drink this on a regular basis though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle picked up in St Louis on the way to Nashville about a year ago. This is really cool. It starts like a really smokey, peaty porter and then finishes with a throat warming, pepper spice. I’d recommend sharing though. This was probably tough to make so well.

Did not really enjoy this beer - the mix of hops and peppers did not agree with me one bit. The beer looks fantastic but I found the taste to be too sharp with a bad pepper aftertaste.
