4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark pour with a thick long lasting tan head. Strong coffee aroma and first taste is coffee mellowed by some cocoa. Very tasty. Don't get much if any chili, but that's ok by me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC feat. Yngwie and Meilby. The Bomb! :-D Pours a near-black deep brown body with a medium creamy light beige head. Nose is intense filter coffee tones, espresso, alcohol, cocoa, vanilla and hints of dark chocolate and vegetal chili tones. Taste is cocoa, chocolate, mild chili, bitter herbs, vanilla, loads of coffee and hints of grains and caramel. Full body, medium carbonation. Very nice "bombshell" with a finely integrated alcohol profile, considering the high ABV.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 12oz. Batch 4, 13%. A gusher, producing a black body under a small, dense, tan head. Lots of coffee and chocolate on the nose, with some cocoa powed, hints of vanilla and a roasted note. Some dark sugars. A faint note of green chilies too. In the flavor the coffee is a bit toned down, leaving more room for the chili. The chili leaves flavor, but not much burn. Actually, the chili burn and alcohol burn combined doesn’t make me think 13-14 % ABV at all. Caramel sauce and some vanilla too. Full-bodied, lightly warming and with a low, soft and pleasant carbonation level. Lasting finish with lots of coffee and some chocolate and chili. Damn, this is wonderful. Wonderful and even more wonderful. 140616

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Strong coffee aroma that overpowers everything else. Pours pitch black with a thin light brown head and some lacing. Thick almost oily mouthfeel. Taste is sweet vanilla and chocolate to start. Finishes smooth with just a hint of spiciness from the chilies. Taste is excellent but the overwhelming amount of coffee in the nose was too much.
