Black with a large creamy brown head and excellent lacing. Roasted malts and coffee aroma. Flavors are acidic, sweet and bitter carrying roasted and smoked aromas with a chilli warmth to prove it! Full bodied. Oily texture with a dry finish. Very nice! Sampler @ CBF 2010.

28-MAY-2010, draft @Mikkeller.
Black with brown head. That yellow hue that is sometimes seen in black beers...
Roasted, sweet and only slightly smokey.
The chili hits the throat after some seconds, and burns a little.
Very nice and very creamy porter. A very fine base porter and for once the chili works fine in a beer, and adds to the roasted flavors.

Black sticky look with a dark brown head. Sweet honey in the aroma along with roasted malt notes. Bitter roasted flavors with a clear chili finish. As expected which was nice.

Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Very black with beige head. Asphalt aroma.Chocolate and caramel coms first, chili heat joins later, coffee liesin the background. Sweet with fairly hard mouthfeel. The chili burn crashes with the roastiness. Not one bit pleasant I’m afraid.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap@Ørsted Ølbar & Cafè. Grey-shaded blond head. Body is black with brown edges. Hard roasted malts, coffee notes and earthy hops in the aroma. A pleasant spice scent too. No chili detected in the first sip. After a few minutes the chili invade the palate. Quite hot, yet balanced and enjoyable. A medium strong, slight sweet malt body is there to back up, along with notes of coffe, fruits and bitterness from the malts and the hops added. Everlasting chili finish.

flavor is mild roasted stuff, as a base for some pretty heavy chili. sort of a chili porter. The chili is good.
