3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep brown with a luxuriant tan head. Coffee and a bit of spice on the nose. Deep rich chocolate flavour, a gritty coffee undertaste and a lot of chilli kicks through immediately. The chilli lingers, rolling around with an almost Irish coffee sensation to create something quite unique. Delicious. Each mouthful is fascinating, from the lathering chocolate to the roasted chilli. A "special" beer though, wouldn’t choose it for everyday drinking, however.

Bottle shared at Richard’s. Black with dark tan head. Roasted chocolate malts, smoke, smoked and grilled paprika, peppers. Medium sweet, medium spicy (in the beginning -- increasing rapidly), mild chocolate bitter. Medium body, low carbonation. Quite hoppy and chocolatey. The spiciness takes over rapidly but remains at a pleasant level. Nice stuff.

Thanks to AleRider78 for sharing this one (as I could not find this one back in late 2014). Dark brown colour with loads of chipotle spices floating all around. Beautiful creamy mocha head with good retention and awesome lacing. Roasted malt aromas with some dark fruity notes and hints of the burnt spices. The roasted malt is quite present in the taste again with some nice bitterness in the end. The chipotle warms the mouth in the aftertaste. Glad I could try this.

Tummaa portteria. Tuoksu melko mieto, vähän savuinen. Maku maltainen, savuinen, makea. Lopuksi chili potkaisee kivasti ja lasillisen jälkeen jo oikein tuntuvasti.

Bottle at home. Pitch black colour, medium brown head with good retention. Nose is roasted malts with cocoa. Taste is cocoa, roasted malts, light coffee and definitve chili in the aftertaste, but not too harsh, just like a chocholate with chili. Lovely.

1.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I can’t believe this beer was rated so highly by people. I ordered it because of the ratings. It tastes like liquid smoke. I think it would make a good marinade for chicken, but as a beverage, it was so heavy I found it unbearable and didn’t even finish it, despite having paid too much for it. And my burps tasted even worse.
