Bottle at RBSG. From notes. Loads of chocolate and a decent chili pepper spice. I think I’ll need a bottle of this for myself.

650 ml bottle courtesy of St Fun. Thanks. Batch 106. Pours an opaque black color with a minimal head that quickly to fizzes away to nothing. The aroma is a bit dusty with cocoa, mocha and chocolates. The taste , like the aroma, features lots of complex chocolates; I get milk, baking, cocoa, mocha and bittersweet. There is also (in the taste) a bit of vanilla as well as some mild pepper spice and a bit of anise. The palate is full and viscous and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and dry with a bit of lingering spicy chocolate. Overall: I thought that this was wonderfully complex and I really enjoyed it. Paired very well with some Spanish Manchego cheese.

Bottle, no wax, this must be a later batch. Pours an opaque black with a huge head. Very light bubbly mouthfeel, surprisingly. Smells strongly of vanilla. Tastes similar with a bit of pepper heat....not an overt heat, but it is there. Decent beer.

Bottle from a trade. Slightly misses the mark in my book - but a good beer. A little thin on the palate, but the sweetness lingers.

Poured from the bottle. Color is pitch black with minimal head. Aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is strong coffee and heat comes through as it warms up. Very nice stout.

DrewFace (760) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2013
As it warms some aromas of chili come out with some hints of cocoa. Pour is medium brown, slightly translucent. After letting it warm, initial flavor of coffee and then follows with some heat from the chiles. Slight amount of heat in this one, not overpowering but very well balanced and very enjoyable.

Bacterial (1505) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Dark black pour, fairly thin. Lots of carbonation, nice tan head. Chocolate and chili in the nose, and again in the taste. Sweet, but not overbearing. Quite nice.
