3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black colour, beige head. The chilli taste blends in well with the stout, and is not overwhelming. One of the best chilli beers Iíve had.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee with notes of chocolate. Flavor is intense, surprised this isnít a stronger beer. Strong roasted coffee bitterness mellowed out with a sweet dark chocolate finish. Finish was fairly mild then thereís just a slight pepper bite in the finish. Smokey throughout and aftertaste is rich but not cloying. Impressive beer, well worth finding.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle, An opaque pitch black beer, with a large, frothy, creamy, mostly lasting brown head. The aroma is moderately malty. There are notes of roasted grains, chocolate, coffee, caramel, chili/pepper. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly sour, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety yexture, lively carbonation, very long finish, with medium to heavy bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Wow, the chili is really evident when youíre swallowing and leaves a burn in the throat. Apart this, exciting appearence, maybe not complex, bur very nice aroma and original. One of the best Mikkelelr stuff. Also warming like a 10% winter beer.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with a good sized and long lasting brown head. As dark as most imperial stouts to be honest, lacing like an IPA. Aroma is very intense with chocolate, fudge, earth, pepper, smoke, jalapenos, espresso. The combo really works for once! Flavor follow suit with plenty of fudge, chocolate and espresso malt accompanied by tangy jalapeno-esque flavor, smoke, and a briny sort of spice. Some leaves and dirt. Finishes really spicy and hot from the peppers, but the flavor is phenomenal. Dark chocolate mixes with smoked pepper astringency and heat and the mix is astounding. Finally, the aftertaste exhibits dry toasty bittereness. Medium-full bodied very creamy and fluffy mouthfeel. Points off for the excessive heat from the spice, but otherwise this is without a doubt the finest example of spiciness Iíve tasted in a beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Mikkeller. Aroma is very roasted, ashy, dark chocolate, liquorice, coffee and a fruity hint of chili. The roasted notes play well together. Taste has the roasted elements of the nose, charcoal and coffee, sweet liquorice, the chili is subtle at first, but as you drink it, it becomes very, very hot, too hot for me. But overall a very nice beer.

Single bottle purchased from Kensington Wine Market in Calgary, AB on 03/01/2012. Colour: Black with dark brown healthy head. Nose: Tar, rubber, smoked oysters.

I loved the spice but couldnít care less for the smoky dirt welcome.
