4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours in black body with really high brown creamy head, wonderful. Aroma has coffee notes, light smoky. Taste has high toffee sweetness, cold coffee after taste, smokiness all over the palate. The lacing is just amazing. Iím not sure if the roastiness comes from the chipotles or the malt, but is just really balanced. The after taste finishes with full toffee, caramel. I donít get any chilli sensation from it, just a really good and balanced stout. Body is full, high carbonation.

A-pours an opaque black, viscous liquid with a thick creamy caramel brown head with a solid lace.
S-milk chocolate, mikkeller ash and peat moss, hints of smoke, somewhat assertive spice towards the back.
T-milk chocolate up front, notes of smokey peat moss, huge peppery spice in the back that I canít get over. rough to drink for me but beer spice heads might like.
M-creamy feel, full bodied, somewhat dry with a clean finish.
D-this starts like a milk stout and immediately burns my throat with nothing I enjoy. the pepper is extremely spicy and overpowering in the back lingering throughout the sip.

Bottle. Black body with large smooth brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, smoke and hints of chilli. Taste is first chocolate with smoke and hints of caramel and some chilli. Very smooth and creamy mouth feel. Aftertaste is first sweet roasted malts balanced by some bitterness and later on it gets hot. This was the first beer with chilli I enjoyed a little bit.

I really enjoyed this beer, and I like spicy food and drinks, but I cannot imagine drinking an entire bottle of this myself. The peppers begin to stick in your throat. Otherwise I would have a higher rating.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Pingvinen, Bergen. Pours an almost perfect black, with a fingerthick creamy and coloured head. Like a proper stout should. And, Öwhat? Not a stout? But the aroma is nice burned malts, with coffee, chocolate and toffee notes. The body is nicely creamy, with a soft carbonation. And the flavour is sweet with burned malts, coffee, chocolate andÖ Hmmm, black pepper. And chili. Yes, lots of chili, and itís getting hotter and hotter throughout the finish. Someone might argue that itís a bit over the top with all this perppery chili? Well maybe not your average stout, but it sure kicks hard and strong for a 6,6 ABV. Nice one.

Pours totally black with a dark brown head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, smokiness, soy, coffee and chili. Taste is light sweet, quite roasty leading to a roasty and spicy finish. Interesting and awesome.
