Great brew, dark, a little spicy (not in a hot way). Some sweetness and lots of flavor. Bought two, one now and one later. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared @ ølbutikken. Big thanks to François-Xavier for bringing this. Aroma of cinnamon, cocoa beans, brown sugar, vanilla, chocolate and some spice. Taste of chocolate cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar, liquorice, chili, caramel and a weak savory end.

Klimaet (504) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle shared at Ølbutikken. Big thanks to François-Xavier for bringing this! Pours pitch black with a medium dark brown head. Aromas of loads of cinnamon, cocoa, dark chocolate, chili fruit, spice, pepper, molasses, melted butter, some cherry-like sweetness to it aswell. Taste is melted butter, chili, dark chocolate, cocoa, lots of cinnamon, licorice, savory notes, lots of roast, chili heat finish. Damn nice!

Bottle poured in my glass at DLD 2015 by a complete stranger. This was yet another mind blowing beer I had this year. Super complex.

Ughsmash (7280) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2015
Draft at the Crafty Cow. Poured near black with a smoked tan head. The aroma picked up sweet chocolates, cocoa, and cinnamon with fresh, well-balanced peppery accents. The flavor found mostly cocoa at the core, with spicy anchos and cinnamon laced throughout.. never too hot, but it had a great kick on the finish. Heavy-bodied, spicy, and engaging on the palate.. great brew!

Zer0 (1148) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
Bottled. Pours dark brown. Nose is chocolate, big cinnamon, roast and some nutty touch. Taste is rather sweet. Huge cinnamon start with chocolate taking over. Well balanced although slightly on the thin side. Really good.

Great Dark black with tan head. Cinnamon & chocolate with hint of chili peppers. Flavors unravel nicely. Great experience.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 30, 2015
[ keg ][ 4oz ][ @Max’s ][ $3.50 ][ mini tumbler ][ 02.17.15 ]
jet black with a dense tan hunahpu-esque head that WILL NOT DIE. Heavy cinnamon, light chocolate, chalky with green pepper accents from contrast, marshmallow sweetness. The marshmallow is right up front on profile, gritty sweetness mid with brownie and cookie batter in finish, low acidity and roast, higher sweetness than desired but balanced, cinnamon still present but cut by dry finish.

fraternie (888) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Crazy aromas of cinnamon and brown sugar. Tastes like a dark cinnamon muffin, gaining subtle cocoa notes and chile spice. Powdery mocha body, ultra-complex and innovative. Suave texture.

Bottle. Black. Big cinnamon bomb. A bit on pepper spice but, not much. Cinnamon dominates. Very good bu5, not the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
