tdtm82 (1034) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2011
75cl bottle, home. Good classic mocha lacing; opaque black colour, aroma is grains, leather, chocolate, chilli peppers, bourbon, Devonshire cream and some nice measured hops. Taste is just divine. chocolate, bourbon, smoke, excellent bitterness, espresso coffee, roasted malts, leather, gorgeous dollops of cream, maybe some very faint vanilla, some uey treacle pudding which just oozes class, toffee and chillies. There is a lovely burn to your mouth when you finish this. I love the chillies in this, such a great touch!

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.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2010
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 I’ve tasted in a beer.

StilleStorm (1023) - 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.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 27, 2011
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.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
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. Taste: Light sweet, medium bitter, medium sour. Coal leads to sour bitterness with grit in the middle. Late horrendous smoke burn and lingering spice. I loved the spice but couldn’t care less for the smoky dirt welcome.

rangerred (989) - 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.

ericdevin (988) - 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.

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.
