Bottle to glass. Aroma is incredible. Chocolate, coffee, vanilla and a hint of chilli. All come through in the aroma. Coffee was strongest but as it warmed the vanilla really came through. Coffee is the dominant taste but chocolate is noticeable in the finish. I was missing the chilis but half way through I could feel a little burn. Perfectly carbonated medium mouthfeel. Really well done.

Bottle at home, thanks kermis! Black pour, tan head. Aroma has a load of chilies, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, cacao, spicy and intense. Flavor is quite sharp and spicy, with the peppers dominating up front and smooth roasted malts. Quite creamy texture and a huge body. Great brew.

Thanks to pushkinwow for this. Pours black with a small frothy beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and chili peppers. Taste is suprisingly not that hot. The palate is clean with roasted malt, light coffee and dark chocolate. Tiny hint of burn in the end but nowhere close to the nose.
