humlelala (1114) - DENMARK - JUL 16, 2011
(on tap @ Café Langebro) Pours pitch black with a rich, toffee head that laces the glass. Aroma of smoke that is gradually complemented by vinous notes as the brew gains room temperature. Taste is very classical porter style with an absence of sweetness and dominance of the dark bitterness of hops and toasted malts. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate and a distinct, gently burning chili aftertaste. Creamy on the palate, full-bodied, softly carbonated and with a long, burning finish. Girlfriend says: "It tickles the tongue in the beginning."

mithe (1105) - 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.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 22, 2013
Pours jet black with a big mocha head, looks great. Nose is oats, coffee and earthy malt. Flavour is all coffee, dark chocolate intensity up front, then comes the chilli, warming everything up. The chilli and chocolate balance is near perfect. Lovely slick, robust mouthfeel. Finish is more of that play between the chilli and chocolate. Epic.

yiannnos (1099) - , 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.

330ml bottle
6.6% ABV
Queen’s Quay LCBO Outlet (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
November 24, 2014
Part of the 2014 Mikkeller LCBO feature. The beer pours a dark brown with black edges and a dark brown creamy cap. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses and peppers. The mouthfeel is full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is roasted malt, sweet chocolate, coffee, and a definite chipotle pepper note. A very good beer.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2010
big bottle. Pours black with a big brown head. Nose is of chocolate and smoke. Taste starts off with chocolate and ash, then the chili peppers become more and more noticeable over time. Mouthfeel is medium with a dry and spicy finish. Very interesting.

StilleStorm (1077) - 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.

Gachupines (1074) - 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.

Sebilinz (1064) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 15, 2015
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.

SPDickerman (1057) - Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2010
UPDATED: APR 8, 2011 Pours dark brown/black with a frothy dark tan head. The aroma is very strong of peppers and might be called a little overbearing. Does not taste like your normal porter. Spiciness is prominent and flavorful while still having those favorable characteristics of a classic porter. Full-bodied and smooth, not too thick, and less than average carbonation. Finishes with a lasting spicy tingle.
