Spab (2845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours an opaque ultra dark brown with average tan head. Aroma is quite roasty with coffee, chocolate, some herbal hops and a little chilli pepper. Flavour starts like a stout or black IPA with lots of roasty cocoa and coffee as well as some herbal hops, but has some real chilli heat at the back end. Finishes hot. Silky body. Impressive although I do find these hot beers ones I like only in moderation.

Tsekouratos (492) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - FEB 1, 2015
330 ml bottle at Bites&Pints, Athens Greece. Pitchblack color with a dark brown head. Aroma is coffee and some pepper heat. Taste coffee and chocolate with some heat, with sticks to your neck as the beer warms up. The body is medium, maye a little too thick for the alcohol, with medium carbonation.

mabel (7455) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
[7206-20150503] Bottle. Roasted fresh chocolate leaf aroma. Black body with a long-lasting foamy light brown head. Chocolate roasted malt flavour has a sweet burnt aftertaste and after a while you really start to notice the chilli pepper burn. Full body is a little bitter. Good, easy to drink at first with a cumulative heat from the pepper. (8/4/8/3/15) 3.8

dnicolaescu (1319) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 17, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Opaque black, espresso head. At just 6,6, the aroma is of a „big” impy - rich sweet dark chocolate and cocoa, coffee and molasses. Notes of spicy chilies and, especially, some smoke. The taste follows the aroma (though, it is not as big): classic chocolate/cocoa, the sweetness is easily balanced by burnt woody notes as well as roasty acidity ans light grassy hops. You can barely feel the heat of the chilies. Medium, smooth body. Very good.

yespr (36043) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
75 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a huge and chocolate brown head. Aroma is hoppy fruity and slight spiced. Smooth roasted and dark chocolate malt flavoured. Slow and distinct chipotle chili bite. Lingering fruity and chocolate flavoured into the far finish. Building chipotle bite.

fonefan (39393) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 30, 2010
Draught @ Orsted Olbar, Norre Farimagsgade 13, 1364 Copenhagen, Denmark.
Clear dark black color with a average to large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy malty, roasted, burnt, coffee, iodine, smoke, moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long duration, smoked, chili - alcohol burn finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily and sticky, carbonation is soft to flat. IMO a bit tomuch chili burn, result is that the beers is not easy to drink ... [20100410]

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Bottle from KAggie97, Cowboy from Hell.
Pours a thick, 10/40 black with a hot chocolate brown head of dense foam. Nose is straight-up cocoa powder and chocolate with fresh coffee grounds in a hairspray solution. I’m not detecting any chipoltle at this point. As it warms, a slight note of black pepper and chipotle emerges. But if the label had not denoted the chipotle addition, the nose would not reveal it to even the most fervent sniffs. The flavor, on the other hand, is a subtle yet aggressive blend of black pepper, chipotle, chocolate, and a touch of coffee. The peppery presence gives the mouthfeel plenty of pop and a fair amount of heat. Overall, a decent beer but I can’t say I’d buy another, especially at the $12 price tag for a 750.
