Würzig malziger Beginn, leichte Schooladennoten. Hintergründig scharfe Noten, pfeffrig. Die Malzigkeit nimmt wenig ab, die würzigen Noten werden intensiver, die Schärfe nimmt zu. Süß-pfiffriges Finish, die Schärfebleibt gerade noch in angenehmem Rahmen, leicht brotig. 12/11/9/9/6/10

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! :-)

Tastes of charred wood, sweet chocolate, burnt tones, chilli and a little medicinal at the end, almost whisky like.
Medium bodied, but fairly chewy, moderate carbonation, smoky finish.
