CBC 2014, fad. Så cremet, så fed, så sort. Masser af choko og wiener melange. Blød som fløjl. Og med et diskret lille chili-bite til sidst.

Draught at CBC 2014. Pours completely black with a nice dark beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Taste is of super roasted malt and coffee, dark chocolate and a bit of chili. Full body and soft carbonation. The aftertaste is a bit spicy from the chili but the beer feels very balanced. Alcohol is well hidden. Very good.

Pour from a bottle is a nice black with a light mocha head. I definetly get the coffee and chocolate aroma then a little chillies at the end. Taste is bitter from the cacao and coffee but has a smoothness to it from the vanilla. It leaves a bitter and dry after taste with a little bite from the chillies.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2014 American Craft Beer Week! On tap at World of Beer SMU. Poured an opaque black with a khaki head. Taste of coffee, vanilla, with a peppery bitter finish. High carb, thick body. Overall, a little too much coffee and chili pepper lingering. I highly applaud them for the complexity, just not my fav flavors.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Tap at cbc14 and then tap. Pours black with small brown head that lasts long time. Aroma is a lot of chocolate and cocoa, some smoke underneath and raisins + dark fruits. Taste is chocolate. Bitter dry dark chocolate. Coffee notes and then the chili comes warming the tongue. Finish is quite dry. Makes a good floater!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Murky brown-black body, thin tight light brown head. Huge, rich chocolate nose with roast, a touch of coffee, and hints of peppers. Also vanilla. Body mostly chocolate wafers and roast, also woody vanilla and pepper heat that lends an interesting fruity complexity that becomes more prominent as the beer warms. Very good but not world-class.
