Nydelig utseende, svart med espressofarget lavt skum. Aromaen er ristet malt, kaffe og noe krydder. Smaken er kaffe, ristet malt og pepper/Chili. Spennende! Minner mye om en Imperial stout i smaksbildet. Medium konsistens. Fin munnfølelelse, sjokolade, kaffe og Chilli i munnen. Den biter på tunga.

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.

Draft @ FFF’s Anny Party...pours a dark black, the head on this is out-of-control. Nose is lite on the chili’s with more of a focus on the roasted malts and chocolate notes. Silky mouthfeel, lingering on the tongue...starts with some really nice dark chocolate notes, along with a bit of coffee...BUT THEN, the peppers come through. Wonderfully balanced, the chilis compliment the dark malts perfectly and leave a lingering burn. Admittedly, a full glass was a bit hard to get through, but still a damn fine brew.

swanmann (656) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 25, 2011
It pours DARK chocolate brown with fluffy tan-orange head. Smokey aromas chocolate, barbecue and alcohol. Nice flavors of mocha and chili. It’s full bodied, a little slick and moderately carbed. The burn sticks in your throat so be ready. DELICIOUS

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.
