Tmoney99 (10665) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle. Poured hazy dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, wood and smoke aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted smoke malt bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

HenrikSoegaard (10544) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 28, 2011
Bottle. Creamy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Black colour. Heavy malty and light hoppy nice aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Alas too much chili. I hate chili in beer!. Long moderate bitter burning finish. Improoves with chocolate I must admit. Creamy palate.

faroeviking (10289) - 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! :-)

madsberg (10184) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
Bottled. Pitch black coloured. Dense brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, grass, light smoke, light liqourice. Flavour of chocolate, roast, brown sugar, chocolate, smoke. Medium to full bodied. Roasty bitterness with a fantastic touch of the chili in the end. Black beers and chili goes well together. Very nice.

Ratman197 (9808) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2011

Flavors of dark chocolate, roastiness, earthiness, light smoke, light chipotle and a hint of vanilla with a smooth dry warming lingering smokey chocolate finish.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2011
Mondial de la Bière 2011, Strasbourg - dark black beer with a little dark beige foam left; very roasted chocolatey aroma with notes of ashes and pepper; full-bodied, fairly bitter and with a long hoppy chocolatey finish; very dry with notes of ashes; salty and peppery - superb

330ml bottle (S. Brevinga Alus Salons, Riga)
7 Lovely roasty aroma, spicy hops too, a touch nettly.
5 Black, gorgeous tight tan head. Alas the barman pouerd in all the crap, but I won’t dock points for that.
7 Lovely rich roasty taste, a real buzz of tingly hops. Burntness is very dry but not astingent.
4 Very smooth palate. I would say slick, but the careless pouring might explain that, so again not docking points. Great tingle in the mouth, but it didn’t immediately say chilli to me, hoppy too. But the gentle burn in the finish explains everything - yup, it’s chilli.
14 Very good chilli beer, possible one of the best I’ve had. It’s very mellow and unaggressive (but I am very much a chilli fan), fitting in with the roast very well.
