Tasty spicy porter. Dark brown pour. Aroma of chili chocolate candy. Taste followed with nice coffee malts and lots of hear and burnt sugar. Smoky too. Awesome balance for all the flavor. Definitely was crisp with a kick in the mouth.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle. Poured a black color with a thick, dense, creamy tan head that slowly receded to a thick fluffy layer while leaving large spots of lacing. Aroma of bakers chocolate, lightly roasted malt, bread (rye?), a soft earthiness, and some dry pepper. Smooth, lightly bitter entry that leads into a moderate roasted maltiness with some hints of light bakers chocolate that leads into a lightly dry earthiness paired with a moderate chalkiness that is overtaken by lightly spicy pepper note that lingers into the finish and becomes a tad overbearing before a light, sweet breadiness peaks through and tries to salvage some of the flavor. Light carbonation and relatively slick mouth feel. Overall, the appearance and aroma are pretty promising, but the lingering, harsh flavor leaves a pretty fair amount to be desired. I am not sure if it’s the peppers that are imparting the chalking, almost medicinal flavors or not, but I am not a fan of that. Bummer.

Gachupines (978) - USA - AUG 22, 2012
Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee with notes of chocolate. Flavor is intense, surprised this isn’t a stronger beer. Strong roasted coffee bitterness mellowed out with a sweet dark chocolate finish. Finish was fairly mild then there’s just a slight pepper bite in the finish. Smokey throughout and aftertaste is rich but not cloying. Impressive beer, well worth finding.

rangerred (976) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City, TN. Arrives almost pitch black with a thick dark tan head. Really good lacing and head retention. Coffee and dark chocolate are most evident in the aroma. There are some spices there too. The flavor is all dark chocolate and coffee up front with some peppery spice in the background. Pepper becomes more apparent towards the middle and finish as a moderate warmth builds in the back of the throat. Some smoke is there too. Overall this is an awesome beer. I don’t think I have had a chili beer before that was this nicely balanced. The warmth is just right and the chili flavor doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the beer. Really glad I got to try this one.

Nische (972) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2013
Pours pitch black with brown medium head. Aroma of coffee, spices, liquorice and burned grass. Taste of chocolate, espresso, wood, chili, pepper and smoke. Could be a little more chili in it to get more flavour than just a dry bitterness.

mithe (970) - Opava & Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 17, 2012
(draught 0,3l @ Vánoční pivní besídka Brno 2012) Chocolate, cocoa and some weird aroma. Black color. Dark brown head. Light sweet, strong cocoa bitter taste. Finishes with chilli peppers burn.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
Pours black with a thick brown head. Very strong aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Great flavour. chocolate toasted barley and coffee, all slowly melding together into a very smokey cpicy finish. Fastastic.

ericdevin (961) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Draft at Hop & Vine, Portland. Pours very dark, essentially opaque. Very slight tan head. Very little aroma, maybe a hint of chocolate. Lively mouthfeel, rich and malty, spice and chocolate rolls in at end of finish. Yeasty burn in finish as well, but not too spicy overall, add in a slight bitterness to a very complex finish and this one’s a winner.

yiannnos (957) - , CYPRUS - JUN 13, 2012
Black colour, beige head. The chilli taste blends in well with the stout, and is not overwhelming. One of the best chilli beers I’ve had.

StilleStorm (938) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2014
DAA; Bottle 330 ml. Pours brown to black with a large, frothy to creamy, lacing, lasting tan head. Nose is heavy roasted, smoked malt and coffee, chocolate, vanilla, tobacco and dark, spice fruit. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a sweet lasting, spice bite, warming finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily to creamy, carbonation is flat to soft. Chilli and beer harmony.
