Very good. Strong coffee aroma, pepper flavor mingles nicely with the coffee taste.

sunevdj (3072) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle share with T&M at M&F. Pours an opque black with a small, light brown head. Smells of vanilla with hints of chilli and cocoa. Quite sweet with a light bitterness. Aromas of cocoa, dates and chilli with hints of dark chocolate, toffee, brown sugar and tobacco. Full bodied. with a slightly creamy finish. Soft carbonation. Long bitter finish with a quite hot chilli after burner. Good stuff!

PhilJackson80 (254) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 26, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 12 oz Bottle. The beer pours a deep black color with a nice medium dark tan head. The aroma was strong with notes of coffee, some vanilla, a little chocolate. The taste was full in body with strong coffee/ espresso notes to it with a hint of the coffee & vanilla but not overpowering at all. The finish was as smooth as any stout i have tried even with the 14% ABV. Overall one of the best beers i have tried.

Pours syrupy black with a disappearing tan head with the appearance of espresso crema and moderate lacing. Chocolate, vanilla and spice aroma. Taste has notes of chilies, chocolate, espresso. Long finish.

Pours from the bottle a dark reddish brown. Creamy milk chocolate head that lingers for a bit. Heavy lacing. Smells of chocolate, coffee and malt, with a hint of chili pepper. The chocolate and coffee explode on the tongue with noticeable alcohol. The peppers give a nice tingle. Thereís a nice bitterness to this. Nice and oily, it coats the tongue without being particularly thick. This is a superb beer. I liked the characteristics the rum barrels gave to Pirate Bomb! a bit more, but this is one you grab every time you can find it.

RamyG4 (320) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Bottle, huge thanks to fatknitty. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma is chocolate, chocolate cake, coffee, brown sugar, chiles, and a little bit of vanilla as it warms. Taste is more of the same; dark chocolate and coffee with the perfect amount of chili peppers. Finish is roasted with a slight burn from the peppers. No alcohol whatsoever, I am shocked that this is 14% abv. It isnít the least bit boozy. Full bodied, silky. If this was brewed with some cinnamon it might be better than Hunahpu. Terrific beer.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12oz (blue wax top) bottle 09/2013 release A - Black liquid with a thin dark drown frappa head that swirls on top. S - Coffee grinds, cocoa, and vanilla. It says it right on the label but itís all very present. The chocolate mixes back and forth between dark and milk chocolate. Smells like a roasted whopper. T - Intense roasted malts, decadent chocolate infused with chile heat that provides a mild heat and quite a bit of flavor as well. Roasted coffee is there but stays behind the chocolate. Vanilla mixes harmoniously with the coffee and chocolate. Itís just the right amount of sweetness. As it warms a smokyness comes out. Finishes malty with roasted bitterness. The chile heats continues long into the finish M - Moderate micro bubbled carbonation, soft and velvety feel, full bodied and viscous. I love this beer! I like it better bottled than on tap. An explosion of chocolate and coffee with a chile pepper bite. Whatís not to love? Drink this one fresh!!!! Serving type: bottle 10-06-2013

Plovmand (6176) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle at Mikkeller Bar. Pours deep opaque black with a creamy cocoa brown head. Sweet roasted malty cocoa aroma. Vanilla and coffee notes. Huge complexity. The flavor is high roasted with coffee and chocolate notes. The chili leaves a light burning feel in the mouth. Not sweet at all compared to the abv. This is awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from Mikkeller shop. It pours deep black and creamy with a small tan head. Huge rich coffee and chocolate nose. Taste is the same with lots of coffee and chocolate. Bitter and tangy thanks to the peppers. Thick body with soft carbonation. A beast, but a good one.
