This really is a excellent beer, aromas are there, taste and feel is there, yes, pretty much everything is! Poors nicely with a rich foam, lots of coffee and choclate notes, the pepper and vanilla comes in as a nice finnish.

Dark chocolate brown, almost black, color with mahogany edges and a half finger mocha head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind.
Sweet robust malt aroma with lots of dessert-like chocolate notes along with subtle cinnamon spice and hot peppers. Strong chocolate sweetness with tootsie roll flavor, subtle vanilla bean and zesty spice. Decent amount of toast but boy acrid or burnt. Some silky lactose sugar giving it a Chocolate milkshake character. Peppers and cinnamon stand out as it warms.
Full body with silky, viscous mouthfeel. Palate is dominated by sweet decadent chocolate, roasted dark malts and spicy chilies. desert like chocolate malt sweetness with hints of tootsie roll, lactose, vanilla bean and bitter dark chocolate. Good balance of sweet and toast with bakers chocolate and gooey fudge countered by burnt toast, coffee bean and oatmeal. Spice presence opens up as it warns with strong cinnamon and roasted pepper flavor. The heat and spice are well integrated resulting in a mole like combination of flavors. and nice balanced with desert like. Complex with a well masked ABV making it deceptively drinkable.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 Kruczoczarne. Ladna czapa drobnej, ciemnobezowej piany. Bardzo intensywny aromat - duze ilości gęstej, gorzkiej czekolady, lekki sos sojowy, lekkie akcenty owocowe, ze wskazaniem na sliwke. Alkohol odczuwalny, ale bardzo dobrze ukryty. W smaku dochodzi lekkie kakao, odkładające sie na języku. Gęste w odczuciu. Alkohol zakrywany jest przez subtelne pieczenie od papryczek. Długi, palono-czekoladowy posmak. Warte swojej ceny.

oz bottle- Pours black with a tan head that reduces leaving a collar. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla cream, chili pepper, coffee. The taste is strong in coffee, chocolate, the chili peppers are well blended in the taste, i’d personally like them more at the forefront, but that’s just my tastes. Velvety and smooth, creamy, rich and delicious, you would never know it was 13%, dangerous.

Essa cerveja é muito bem avaliada. Já tinha um tempo que queria prová-la. De início ao encher o copo já se percebe que tem uma bela aparência parecendo óleo de motor com espuma marron e encorpada.
Acho que criei muita expectativa. Não é tão aromática e saborosa quanto esperava, mas é bem assertiva no contraste do dulçor com amargor.
É impressionante como o álcool é bem inserido. Parece ter a metade dos 13% abv anunciado. Boa cerveja. Podia ser mais barata.

Incredible beer, full of cofee, some vanilla, chocolate, espresso coffee smells, a little suggestion of Milk shake. cloudy, minimal head, brown. Flavour of cocoa beans, some dark chocolate, cappuccino, vanilla, a little bit of Pepper at the end. Sweet but Really Well rounded and balanced by the espresso flavour, and punch of Pepper. Incredible stout, maybe my favourite.

33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark brown to black with a moderately bubbly head upon initial pour which soon vanishes to leave an oily black liquid which stains the glass. Aroma is earthy coffee grounds, baker’s cocoa and a slight evidence of the chilli. Taste is wonderfully balanced - sweet chocolate and vanilla with the earthy/woody notes from the coffee beans and a good level of heat imparted from the chillies. Hotter than Bible Belt but less luxurious with the desert-like flavours. Neither is best but they are clearly different which going from other reviews I had expected to not tell the difference.
