Draught at Ölrepubliken on October 29, 2012
During the tap take over from Mikkeller and To Øl.
Black color, dark brown head. Sweet, chocolate scent. Sweet, chocolate, caramel taste. Turns to burning chili seeds on teh tongue in the aftertaste. Actually very strong chili, too strong to feel other taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

fonefan (34334) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 30, 2010
Draught @ Orsted Olbar, Norre Farimagsgade 13, 1364 Copenhagen, Denmark.
Clear dark black color with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy malty, roasted, burnt, coffee, iodine, smoke, moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long duration, smoked, chili - alcohol burn finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily and sticky, carbonation is soft to flat. IMO a bit tomuch chili burn, result is that the beers is not easy to drink ... [20100410]

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 28, 2010
Tap @ Ørsted Ølbar, Cph.
Pours a lovely, almost completely black. Small, frothy, brown head that stays. Aroma has chocolate, soft roasted malts, walnuts, a hint of pepper and soft liqourice. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Very lovely flavour, just how I like it in balance. Fat malt, light roasted, dark chocolate abound, some coffee. Then lots of creeping, soft chili hotness. Long, lingering, dry, roasted, chocolate and hot finish. Lovely.

joergen (20576) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 27, 2010
Bottle at home. Pitch black coloured with a huge brown head. Roasted aroma of dark chocolate, chili pepper and coffee. Roasted flavour of dark chocolate, chili pepper and coffee. Roasted and burning finish of coffee and chili pepper. Nice beer, but too much pepper.

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 18, 2010
Black with a big and lasting light brown head. Aroma of malt, licorice, smoke and chili. Sweet and roasted flavour with a hot spicy finish. A bit too much for me.

sfhodense (4791) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - APR 15, 2010
Pours black with a large brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, smoke, coffee and chilli. Flavour is roasted malt, malt acidic, alcohol, cold coffee and chilli. I don’t like the chilli in this beer, it is a bit overpowering.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 15, 2010
Fløska. Pitch black colour with a huge nice brown creamy head leaving a good thick lacing. Very pleasant aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and some Chipotle. Good mouthfeel indeed. Lovely bit sweet soft flavour of well roasted malt, chocolate, some dark fruit, light smoke, pleasant tingeling spicy chiliness from the tasteful meaty medium spiced Chipotle (this chili pepper is a ripened jalapeño dried by smoking). Roasted malt, chocolate, mild smoke, Chipotle spiced pleasant finish. The more smoked and costful version, Chipotle Ahumado, would in my opinion be even greater compared to a Chipotle Morita. Chipotle Ahumado would be ideal in an Imperial Stout! :-)

Bottle @ Odense Tasting, April 2010. Pours pitch black with a creamy head and lacings. Nose is roast, coffee and smoke. Velvetly smooth flavor and palate. Hard roasted coffee, chili and chocolate. Warm and quite hot bite. Very well made!

Plovmand (6320) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 11, 2010
On tap at Ørsted Ølbar. Pitch black with a small tan head. Roasty and fruity aroma with coffee and chocolate notes. The flavour is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and the comes the chili. It overpowers the tasting notes after 5 or 6 sips. Creamy texture.

Playing around with chilli is apparently very popular - A certain danish beer even won a title using that spicy stuff. Its not the first time Mikkeller have used chilli and the last time was pretty good bodes well for this next chilli-shot from Mikkeller. The bottle is a thick and heavy 75cl bottle with some need lable work on. If a beer ever has been black this is the one. Hell is murky as MacBeth said. The head is triumphant huge and dark brown. This is a black beauty. The nose is roasty and your clearly sense the chili. It has a smokyness than reminds me of my favorite spice - bacon toped with burned malts. The taste is a three step thing. At first the sweetness from roastet malts along with som vanilla and licorice. The there is some hoppy bitterness at finally your are hit by a balanced afterburn from the chillis. You rarely see a beer with a balanced chili - but this one has succeed in blending the taste of chili in so it adds to the picture instead of taking it all over. Nice. The palate is pretty thick and oily taking in mind that its a rather mild beer alcoholvice. Good job.
