Drank with Masum at his place 16-10-2015. Weird beer. Strong Chipotle Chili taste, but I still like it, since the taste is more than that. It is also rich and complex.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 mL bottle. Black with a khaki head that holds well. Roasty malt and chile pepper on the nose combining together in a smoky pimenton-esque fashion. Light chile heat with a definitive tobacco smoke earth tone, roasted peppers, caramel sweetness, coffee, cinnamon and chocolate. Moderate plus body with similar carbonation. Lightly sweet but balanced with load of roast. Subtle and nuanced, enjoyed way more than I anticipated.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Pours an impressive inch-thick dark beige head with good retention that leaves a nice lacing pattern - i.e. the looks of an imperial stout of twice the ABV. Pitch black colour. Aroma of sugary roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, licorice and a slightly vegetal element akin to raw coffee beans. Medium body, soft carbonation, rich mouthfeel, again reminiscent of stronger stouts. Dry malty, woody taste with a prominent but pleasant chili heat - ’medium hot’, I guess. This is balanced by some sweetness and a little acidity that is amplified by the chili. Mildly bitter coffee-vegetal aftertaste with a lingering chili burn.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. In the cellar for about a year. Pours black with a one finger dark mocha coloured head. On the nose, molasses, espresso, light woody notes, raisin, and a faint hint of smoke. A surprisingly HUGE nose for a 6.6% porter. Taste? Molasses, black licorice, light raisiny notes, LOTS of roasty malt notes with some mild heat that leads into BIG dry espresso notes, faint ash, molasses, a little more heat, with a long, dry bitter finish. I WAS NOT expecting a beer this huge from such a small percentage. Top notch stuff. 100% repeat purchase.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Velvet black pour with caramel head. Smokey and caramel with bitter chocolate and spice on the palate. A rich and warming beer with the chilli factor slowly building at the back of the throat and in the stomach.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
