beighe head with orange haze (!) that disappears quickly with lacing. coffee coloured. aroma of coffeee, mocha, chocolate and smoked malt. taste of liquorice, smoked malts, vanilla and coffee. after a while the habanero chili really comes through, but never dominates too much. quite dense mouthfeel, i imagine in part due to the pumpkin. the high abv is well hidden. bottle 33 cl

Bottle 33cl, a dark beer. Nose is intense on dark malt and smoked notes, vegetable touch. Beer is very oly, intense sweet and roasted notes, body is on smoked, vegetal and alcohol like. Very intense, dark chocolate, dry finish with intense grassy bitterness. Finish is peppery which grows on chilli and quite spicy then.

Petroleum beer. Strong black color, strong aromas, strong taste and strong mouthfeel. This beer is STRONG. Aromas: Chocolate, coffee but dry fruits and some spices as well. Taste: Very intense bitterness modulated by the sweetness. For me it is too bitter. Mouth-feel: full body, high carbonation and a very special hot sensation because of the chili. The high alcohol degree is hidden by the strong mouth-feel and taste. This beer is a beast. Very special and high quality but too strength for me.

venom666 (533) - Elche, SPAIN - MAY 13, 2015
Pitch black color with little light brown head. Aroma has lots of habanero chile, also pumpkin, roasted malts and dark chocolate, with a coffee backbone. Taste has lots of chocolate, with pumpkin, roasty/toasty malts and some coffee with a woody background. Aftertaste is bitter with a marked spicy chilli finish to it. Very balanced, pumpkin is not overwhelming and aftertaste is not insanely spicy. Different and really really good.

La mousse est très foncée, limite rougeoyante. Au nez, c’est: piment, café, poivré, épicé dont la cannelle, cacao, le nez est très intéressant, et agréable, peut être la citrouille emballe le tout. Allez hue, à table !!! HMMMM !!!!!!! En bouche c’est fabuleux, tellement de couches, un fantastique cacao, citrouille, café, c’est presque salé...Et le piment au fond du fond de la gorge, rooooh..c’est épais, une magnifique amertume qui vient crescendo, l’alcool est introuvable. Je ne regrette pas du tout d’avoir bataillé pour mettre la main dessus....hmm c’est un objet bizarre, mais réalisé de main de maitre par les gars de Noain... Au fait, à quand un Blend entre la Brouwerij Alvinne Mano Negra chili stout et la Pumpkin Tzar? Allez, le tout vielli en fût de Pedro Ximenez ou de Rhum, tiens ,et BOOM !!! Bon, on peux toujours rêver

Botella. Lote 15058.Color marrón rojizo oscuro. Espuma marrón media formación poco persistente. Aromas a calabaza asada, caramelo, café, chocolate negro, chile, licor ...en global recuerda al "arrope" de calabaza. En boca es cremosa, carbo baja algo viva. Dulce donde se aprecian todos los matices de aroma con un punto picante, ya calabaza churruscada, final largo, cafetoso. Calienta la garganta tanto por el picante como por el alcohol. Muy bien camuflado. Birra curiosa muy bien hecha, y q a pesar de lo q se podría pensar un primer momento no cansa. Muy buena!!!

Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Smooth dark malts with a spicy licorice streak. Nice fruity tang. Touch of dark chocolate and a trace of coffee. Spicy dry finish. Tasty, even a little intense.

Bottle to snifter. Looks good; a mostly opaque dull dark (almost black) coffee with darker beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, bitter chocolate, roast, pumpkin, and a bit spice. Tastes like it smells with a fairly bitter medium to medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Good, not great; thin for the abv.
