KennethArd (232) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2014
Spicy sweet aroma. Hazy golden with minimal head. Way too much chili & nothing else in the taste. Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation & long finish of chili, chili, chili.

djoeye (1481) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2014
Tart-yellowish head, hazy golden apricot body, sediments, some lacings. Scents; flowers, sweet malts, cardamum, dough, toffee. Taste; strong caramel, hops, bitter, pepper, spices, sweets and alcohol. Strong stuff on palate. Fading peppery finish. This brew would benefit from lower abv, but nevertheless it goes well along with spicy powerful dishes.

Maria (10143) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2013
It’s slightly hazy golden amber with a creamy head. The aroma has notes mild spice, caramel, fruit and malt. The flavor is sweet with the same notes as the aroma plus alcohol. The chili gives a little too dominating burn...

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle. Low fluffy lasting white head. Hazy dark amber body looking to have a lot of carbonation. Heavy aroma of cardamom and just a hint of c aramel. Powerful and quite overwhelming cardamom flavor at first and finish with pepper and chilli. In spite pf the looks the carbonation seemed low. The beer has a very long finish. Points for producing a different beer. Just too bad that I do not like it. The cardamom is way too dominant.

Zita (4622) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2013
chili and cardamom aroma,golden, clear, off white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, soft carbonation, chili in a beer is not good.

Hansen (6602) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2013
Don’t like these over-spiced beers, it gets too odd. Light amber coloured and clear. Has a white head, medium duration. Spicy aroma, bad. Flavor is mainly sweet and spicy. Has a chili-note, hot.
