Playing around with chilli is apparently very popular - A certain danish beer even won a title using that spicy stuff. Its not the first time Mikkeller have used chilli and the last time was pretty good bodes well for this next chilli-shot from Mikkeller. The bottle is a thick and heavy 75cl bottle with some need lable work on. If a beer ever has been black this is the one. Hell is murky as MacBeth said. The head is triumphant huge and dark brown. This is a black beauty. The nose is roasty and your clearly sense the chili. It has a smokyness than reminds me of my favorite spice - bacon toped with burned malts. The taste is a three step thing. At first the sweetness from roastet malts along with som vanilla and licorice. The there is some hoppy bitterness at finally your are hit by a balanced afterburn from the chillis. You rarely see a beer with a balanced chili - but this one has succeed in blending the taste of chili in so it adds to the picture instead of taking it all over. Nice. The palate is pretty thick and oily taking in mind that its a rather mild beer alcoholvice. Good job.

veceo (651) - CROATIA - AUG 15, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Pitch black color, big brown head. Good retention. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma of hops, roast and chipotle sauce. Very silky and sticky texture. Taste is roasty, chipotle sauce, coffee, chocolate. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Hot peppers are shy at first, but spiciness is slowly building up towards the end. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent stuff.

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2011
Pour deep black with a dark tan brown head good lacing. Aroma smokey, anise, wood, coffee, chocolate, nice hopping, slight phenolic, roasty, slight nuttiness. Taste bbq smokey, roast, hickory, chocolate, coffee, pepper, some good heat from chipotle, good bitter hops, with some citrus hops in background. MF full creamy body with a good carb that opens up the palate. This is very well constructed brew and the best example of this style I have seen a truly enjoyable sipper.

maledictum (648) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JAN 3, 2012
Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is sweet plum, sugar, some honey, roast and quite spicy. Flavour is roasted malts, some alcohol, spices and quite burning in the finish.

kapusil (646) - HUNGARY - JUL 11, 2014
0.33l bottle. Black body, light brown head. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, grilled pepper, smoke and floral hops. Taste of coffee, floral hops, hint of chili pepper and smoke. The chili pepper is definitely there in the taste but it’s not hot at all. Very nice beer.

Freaky_tiki (644) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Pours the colour of my darkest hours into the glass with a deep brown cap. Tastes deep stout with rich mocha meets smokey chipotle. Not buying some of the complaints in the reviews below me. This is a serious brew where a solid stout swirls in a funky Mikes Davis style bitch’s brew of chili heat. Recommended (if you like chili peppers).

Bricks (640) - Delaware, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Dark in appearance, with a strange hue in the head -- interesting. Nice smokey/pepper test that comes back to bite you with a spicy aftertaste. Not what a beer should taste like, but worth a try.
