Pours an opaque black with a big but short lasting tan head that amounts to a thin ring. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, vanilla, some roasted malts and a touch of spice underneath. Flavour is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, a mild bitterness, then slowly the cayenne pepper hits, it warms all the way down and adds a perfect little kick to it. Theres no alcohol noticeable on this for a 7.5 beer.

Reimer96 (1486) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Pours a dark inky opaque black with a small frothy beige head that sits on top. Aroma is sweet vanilla, chocolate/ mocha like with a hint of roasted malts. Taste is a sweet chocolate mocha latte with a nice roasted malt bitter on the finish that ever so slowly turns into a nice warming/gentle burning from the cayenne. Not overwhelming which makes it work perfect and the fact that this one in 7.5 percent makes it excellently balanced.

dresden (1134) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
Pours cola black, quite a bit of bubbly carbonation with a short tan head. Chocolate and coffee aroma with a light spice. Taste is fudge and brownie with some vanilla, finishes with a scratchy chili heat. A bit thin on the body and more carbed than I might prefer but still delicious. Really interesting beer.

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours an inky dark brown with a moderate brown head. Aroma is chocolate and mocha coffee. Taste is loads of chocolate, small toasted malts with the sweetness coming off of it. Slow warming from the pepper but it isn’t prevalent which is nice.

[4582-20120704] Bottle. Roasted coffee malt aroma. Black body with a long-lasting giant foamy tan head. Roasted chocolate coffee grounds flavour follows up quickly with a hot and tangy wood fruit finish. Full body has quite a spicy kick which builds up over sips. Really interesting but I have no desire to have more than a sample at a time. (6/4/7/3/15) 3.5

Bottle thanks to DuffMan cheers!! Pours a dark brown beer with a small tanned head. Aroma is full of chocolate and has a slight peppery smell to it as well. Flavour however, starts off nice and sweet, but has a huge pepper kick that blows my tongue away. I’m used with spiced food, but this is a really peppered beer. It has some chocolate notes for sure, but the body is mostly controlled by the pepper. I did certainly not expect it to be this heavy, but it is drinkable.. slowly... Enjoyable, but a bit overpeppered in my opinion..

2012-07-03. Very dark brown-black body with a huge foamy tan head. 3+ Modest aroma, dry dusty-toasty malt, cocoa notes. Flavour has a malty core, accents of dusty malt and cocoa, a very light pepper character that has a light burn on the lips and in the back of the throat. Toasty malt character comes out a bit more as you move through the glass. 6+ Average bodied palate is thin for the beer, but the foamy pour suggests that it may have thinned a bit in the time it took me to get to this bottle? Decent, I’d like a bit more cocoa and chocolate and less of the cayenne for my own tasts. Bottle via trade with Savvy1982

Bottled sample via Savvy1982. Near black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of fruity black licorice, dark chocolate, and nail polish remover. Flavours are of dark chocolate, char, caramel, and light red pepper flake. Medium bodied, as you feel the peppery heat more than you taste it. The balance seems off to me, as did the aroma in particular.

Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of roasted malt and light black chocolate notes. Taste starts at first with some notes of dry roasted malt with notes of black chocolates, Peppers notes then come through with some light heat which is well balanced with the rest of the flavours. Body is about average with good carbonation and a somewhat creamy texture. Nota big fan of peppers in beer but this one was well balanced.
